Joey and I are back from our first shower, which was at my parents’ house. I must admit that Joey and I were more than a little leery before we went. My mother kept putting off the date, changing her mind about who should come and generally being evasive about having the shower. So we just weren’t sure how the day would go. But we were pleasantly surprised. My two high school besties showed up as did a house full of aunts and cousins. We laughed and talked the afternoon away. My one question though: why do people not pay attention to baby registries? Joey and I are the proud owners of a wealth of matching baby outfits, many of them monogrammed. I think twins must push the precious gene in people. Happily though, one side of the family gave us money and Joey and I picked up a wide variety of useful items from BRUS. One shower down: 2 to go. Hopefully we will get the nursery back in order today and I can share some pictures soon.
In other news, Joey had another ultrasound on Friday. The boys are growing so well. Baby A weighs 3 pounds and Baby B weighs 2 lb 14 oz. At this rate, we should have 6 lb boys! Joey is now 28 weeks, 5 days…. wow. My new favorite thing she does is ask me for help putting on her socks and her pants. Bending does not happen. :0)
And I leave with a picture of the loot and a very telling photo.
