My family started asking if we wanted to have a baby shower. I said no but they seem disappointed. We are having a boy. Our last baby was a boy and he is almost two. It seems weird to have a shower for the same gender so close together. What do y'all think?

I dont think its weird... If you dont need anything, say in the invitations that youre accepting books or diapers and wipes. A baby shower is a celebration of a new life, imo. And any excuse to party is a good idea to me ;)

My two older girls are 2 1/2 years apart and I said no to a shower for dd2 and I still regret it all these years later. I didn't need anytging but I still wish we would have celebrated her with a small get together. I feel so bad when we are looking over old pics of my dd1 shower and she asks to see hers.
Let them throw you a shower.

When people offered to have us one we simply declined ans told them we were having a baby meet and greet and gift were optional.  I felt like i only deserved one with my first since i had nothing.
