For Blake’s pregnancy, I definitely wanted the nursery to look perfect. Jamie, remember painting the stripes in his room? I loved how everything turned out.
For the twins, we wanted to do something simple and neutral since we don’t know what we are having. And once I hit 33 weeks this past Friday, I was in official nesting mode. The crib and changing table were delivered just in time for me to get my fix! We’ve decided to put one crib in our room for them to share for awhile (below) and one crib in the nursery.
Here’s a few shots including one of our big boy helping out too. He dusted, cleaned the mirrors with Mike, vacuumed, and even helped me pack my bag for the hospital (more on that later)! I think we are all a little anxious and excited for the new babes to get here.
Last weekend, my loving sister, cousin, and mom threw we an intimate baby shower for the twins. At first, I was planning on having something after the babies were born (since we aren’t finding out the sexes) but after some convincing, a shower was planned to take care of the necessary stuff (and so much more). Since it was just going to be my family, I envisioned it as a: let’s grab some sammies, kick up our feet, chat about girl stuff, maybe watch a movie, really relaxed baby shower. Then I walked in.
I’m warning you now, I posted way too many pictures. But the DETAILS. And the love and energy that went into making it such a memorable day: from the cute “When is the water going to break?” plastic baby-in-an-ice cube-game, to the delicious sit down lunch, to the table decor, to the adorable invitations. My family is an amazing one.
Thank you Jamie, Crystal, and Mom. I love you.
