My younger sister and her husband are having a baby in March. No one knows if it's a boy or a girl. They're about 30.
I know I'm supposed to give them a present. I've got that covered.
Aside from that are there any rituals, gifts, speeches, observances, expected sayings, modes of expression, actions, do's or don'ts, that I should be aware of?
Am I supposed to make a speech?
I guess I should visit her in the hospital, right? Or maybe not. What do people do?
