    1. Congrats on your pregnancy Maria. One of my Fav product for Baby Showers are Belly Banter. They are stickers you put on your belly while you are pregnant to document your progress or you can get them for the baby to use for monthly pictures. They are so cute! We did a whole series of photo sessions with them, here is one of my favs:
