Cigars...candy..anything when you had your baby? Or do you plan on it?

With Gavin we had "It's a Boy" Cigars and then gum cigars and suckers that said "It's a boy" With Maddie we had the gum cigars again but couldn't find real ones to pass out. I am not sure if we are going to do anything this time or not??

Nope, nothing. We knew that it would just be my family so there really was no sense in it.

One of my former co-workers had HERSHEY bars wrapped in baby blue paper (tied with blue ribbon) with It's a HE! on it. They had the paper cut out to match the candy bar title to show just the HE part. You could do the same for a girl, only use pink paper, ribbon & cut it so "SHE" was showing.

Hard to explain, but really cute.

No. I bought Eric a good cuban cigar and stowed it in my hospital bag. I had my dad give it to him right after she was born. We didn't pass anything out to family though.

We had ping gum cigars, real cigars with 'It's a girl' and Hershey bars wrapped in pink paper. It said "HERETHEYARE" instead of Hersheys and the back of the wrapper had their stats.

Yesterday I bought some pink suckers that say "It's a Girl!" and Court said he was going to get some cigars.

We didn't with either of our babies. Not sure why, I guess we just didn't think of it.

Oh wait, maybe Marco did buy some cigars when we had Sydney. Something tells me I remember him telling me that he did. Some memory I have!

We didn't pass out anything because we didn't think to. Would have been cute and I love the Hershey idea!!
