Jon and I are in awe of how many people are already loving our little babies. We’ve had three showers already, and each and every one was so unique and special…planned just to celebrate baby boy and baby girl.
Our first one was in my hometown the Saturday before last, and my sister, aunt, mom and cousin worked so hard to make it special. It had a summery vintage theme complete with an old school chalkboard, lemonade, sweet tea and cupcakes! Everyone from family to my mom’s friends from work came out.
My sister played emcee, bringing much comedy to the day. And Jon totally dominated with all his baby knowledge – from how many diapers we’ll use in a day to how many he’ll actually change:) He is going to be such a good daddy. I can’t wait:)
My mom made us these precious scrapbooks. If you know me, you know that I love stuff like this. It means so much because she put in so much time to make them. They have pages for all the major events in the babies’ lives – like their first Sunday to go to church, their first trip to our lake cabin, their first jog and a travel page where we can put pictures of all the new places we’ll show them. Olive even got her very own page.
I think the babies already have more clothes than I do…definitely more than their daddy. The amount of gifts our sweet guests brought was completely overwhelming. It is unreal to me how generous our friends and family are. The twins are two blessed little babies for sure.
What a joyful day. It seemed so surreal that we were actually having a baby shower. For our own babies. I never thought the day would come. I still have to remind myself that all this is real, and days like this one make it all the more unbelievable.
After the shower we got to hang around my mom and step dad’s house for a few hours, cook hamburgers outside and just spend time together. One of my all time favorite days:)
