When you bring home a new baby, you are going to have so many people who just “have” to come see her! In our case, this included relatives, close friends, and about 150 teenaged students! We decided it was a good idea to host the throng all at once and invited them over for an open house, meet-the-baby party!
We set the date and time (an hour and a half was plenty long), and put out an open invitation for anyone to drop by. We said that no presents were requested, just their “presence” (see what I did there?).
