I know that the sooner the better is the general rule on thank-you notes, but was wondering what people considered the limit on length of time after shower before thank-you notes are sent. The reason is that I know a lot of people will be giving me newborn clothing at my shower, and I thought it would be cute to include a picture of baby wearing the outfit that someone gave them in the thank-you note.
My shower is in two weeks; I will be 35 weeks at that time. So, I figure if I want to do the picture thing, it would be at most 8 weeks after the shower. Is that too long?
Also, if I do the picture thing, for people who give something other than clothing (or clothing that isn't new born sized) should I send their thank-you notes ASAP, or wait until I send the others? And if I wait, possibly include a "birth announcement" type photo?
I also realize that I may be making this way more complicated than it needs to be, so if I need a reality check, please tell me!
