Welcome Amelia Taylor Protas!

Oh, Baby! My best friend from college ("Kristin from college" as Molly calls her) and her husband Michael welcomed their first baby – Amelia Taylor Protas on August 27th, 2011. She is absolutely precious and I am thrilled for this budding new family. 

Mike and I know exactly what they are going through right now. Waiting for a hint of jaundice to clear up, the sleepless nights, the questions, the trips to the pediatrician, the round-the-clock feedings – it can all be so overwhelming! There are so many emotions you have when you have a baby. From complete and utter exhaustion, to confusion, to extreme joy, to the feeling like you are conquering the world, and pure, pure love. You feel them all. 

How about some welcome gifts & cards for Baby Amelia? Here are some gifts I am loving these days from Land of the Nod and Giggle.com 

Another great gift for a baby and new family is a PSA Essentials personalized stamp and the interchangeable Peel & Stick stamps. If you get the gift out quickly, the family can use the stamp for their birth announcements and thank-you cards. 

When sending this gift, I recommend a personalized stamp for the family, or for the baby itself, then a 2-color ink and either the PSA Carriage Peel & Stick or the Little Bunny Peel & Stick sets. They are super cute for announcements and thank-you cards! The mom will love you because it makes sending out correspondence a breeze.

Welcome Amelia Protas!
