"So why are we going to a party to watch Hermione give a baby a bath? And where is she getting a baby? Hers isn't born yet. I guess we could let her borrow James if she needs the practice . . ."
Harry burst out laughing, causing Ginny to glare at him. He put his arm around her. "At a baby shower, the mum-to-be is showered with gifts for the new baby."
"How do you know so much about baby showers?"
Harry blushed. "When I was little, Aunt Petunia hosted baby showers for her friends. Any opportunity to show off her precious Diddykins. I stayed in my cupboard, but I heard what was happening . . ."
"Oh, Harry." Ginny hugged him tightly.
"So what do witches do when someone is going to have a baby?"
"We do the gifts and food and everything after the baby is born so friends meet the new arrival and can help the parents with cooking or housework."

"Rose, meet your Uncle Harry and Auntie Ginny." Ron held Rose out to Harry. "Would you like to hold her?"
Harry nodded, taking her. "There's the beautiful little flower."
