It's a bit strange but perhaps they heard about it, wanted to do something but didn't know what to do -- so they picked up some items the baby would need.<quoted text>
I thought it was weird that people showed up at the hospital with basics -- diapers, formula, etc. You'd think they'd know the hospital would have all of that. Wouldn't it?
Knowing how boys are prized over there, I wonder what the response would have been if it was a girl. Just sayin'.
