You were probably expecting a 30-week update. Don't worry, it's coming. I just thought I would wait until after our doctor's appointment tomorrow so I would have updated information for you!
Instead, I thought I would post about our first two baby showers for the twins. We have been so overwhelmed with kindness, gifts, love and support. We are so very grateful!
So, I was supposed to have my first baby shower February 5th in Austin, but the week before I was put on strict work and travel restriction by my doctor, so we had to make a tough decision and postpone it until after the babies are here. I'm okay with that, truly, because then people who might not otherwise will get to meet them!
So, our first baby shower we actually got to go to was a couple's shower, hosted by four sweet couple friends of ours: the Steeds, the Pipers, the Chisums, and the Blackburns. We had such a great time! Because it was February 12th and it was a couple's shower, it was Valentine themed. So cute and creative! Despite the fact that many couldn't be there because C-town had/has been invaded with the flu, stomach bug, mono and strep, we still had a good turn out and had a great time visiting.
Oh, and I can't believe I somehow didn't get a picture of the gift table. The hostesses asked that the gifts not be wrapped, and included a cute tag with the invites so each of the guests could write something on it and attach it to their gifts. This way, no one had to sit around and watch McH and me open presents; we spent our time visiting and eating instead! They also had thank you notes on the table, and each guest who brought a gift addressed an envelope so all I had to do later was write the note and put it in the mail! How awesome of an idea is that?!
Here are some pics...
The second shower was given by church and school people. It was in our church parlor and again, we were blessed beyond any expectation! It was last Sunday afternoon.
