Default Not your typical baby shower

Hey gang!
Here's the situation. My cousin and her husband adopted a baby born in September. About a month prior to that she found out she is pregnant and due in April - they'll be about 7 months apart. So, her sisters are giving her a baby shower in a few weeks and I'm not sure what to do for a card because of course we know what the baby is that they already have - a boy - but we don't know what the sex of the unborn baby is. If they know, they're not telling.
So, has anyone ever been in a situation like this? I looked at the Baby Firsts gallery and a lot of things there show 3 babies, which in this case would almost make it look like she was going to have 3 babies come April and she's not. I'm going to do a little more looking, but if you have something in your gallery that might work, could you point me in that direction?

Thanks!

So, is the shower soon--and for both babies? For the current baby? The coming baby? I'm a bit confused, sorry! Congrats to them, though. I'm the adoptive mom to two beautiful girls in open adoptions. My DDs are now 9 and 7. My, how time flies!

I think just a simple congratulations card would work! .. is the baby shower a joint shower for both of her babies?

These are some ideas (sorry, they're all from my gallery... just ones I remembered making... I'm sure there are others out there as well!)... if you wanted to do them more unisex, I put some ideas....

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=12548
On this one, maybe you could do one foot in blue and one in moss? Just to sort of show the "2 babies" thing?

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=12548
This one you could use the words "always" or something on it instead of grateful.... and obviously different colors....

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=12548
This one can really be unisex depending on the colors.... and if you put "love" iinstead of thankyou and even wrote "babies" instead of baby....

I hope this helps give you some ideas!

how about doing a waterfall card and putting some info on each baby then at the end do the date/time info! I hope you have good luck with this....let us know how it turns out! I've heard simular stories like this! I think it is wonderful! I have 2 boys 11 months apart and I LOVE IT!!! Even though it is very hard the first few years.....I hope she has as much blessings as I did! Mine are now 14 and 13 But they are still my best friends Good luck!

MamaK - those are some great cards! I'll keep them in mind if not for now, then for future use.

Sorry about the confusion everyone. Yes, the shower is for BOTH babies - the boy that's already born and the unknown, unborn one as well. I'm sure since it will sort of be like having twins she'll need 2 of a lot of things, but if you look at her registry, there's hardly anything on it. Especially big things like high chairs and car seats.

I did do a little more searching after I made my original post and found something I could do using the Toy Box set.

Keep the ideas coming though!

I love these cards by stampin3. Just use a baby yellow color instead of pink or blue. A message inside about babies and blessings would fit for both.
