So, last Saturday was my first shower. OMG, it was AMAZING!!! The hostesses were Angel, Jennifer (my sister), Paige, Jackie, Alicia and Jana. They all did such a terrific job, I'm still getting over how awesome it was. Angel's mantel was decorated with a clothes line hanging with girlie onesies! 2 of each one, so cute! She also made this amazing diaper cake, and stuffed little baby gifts in the ribbon that held everything together. Jana made the beautiful cake, which was so pretty and TASTED SO GOOD! I could go on and on and on about how wonderful it was. My sister gave the babies each a quilt that she hand made. It's actually kind of funny, but she picked out the colors of the quilt, before I chose the colors for their room, and they just happen to match. They are so beautiful. I can't wait to show them. My mom also made Hollie a quilt (uh mom, where's mine???). Kidding. It's really pretty too, and Hollie loved it. We're posting pictures of these things and much more below. Oh, and, so much for wearing black to make myself look slim. Oh man, I am HUGE!!!
The babies got so many cute things, and I can't wait to dress them in all the clothes that were given to them. Hollie had a good time as well. I tried to make it a special day for her. Two nights before, I went and got her a silver and pearl beaded bracelet with a silver heart charm on it. On one side, it said "Big Sis Hollie" and the other side, it said Brooke/Kamryn 2009. She was so genuine when she opened it. I could tell that it really meant a lot to her. Which, meant the world to me!!!
I'm not sleeping well at night, so I took today off to rest. Did I sleep? Of course not. I can't seem to find a comfortable spot. Then, I started feeling guilty for just sitting there watching tv, so I got up to fold some laundry. I mean, it's not like I'm sick or anything. Just really tired. I realize the importance of sleep/rest and making sure that the babies stay safe inside my belly for a little while longer. But, I just feel bad for some reason. Don't worry, when I'm officially on bed rest, I'll stay put, taking occasional breaks to get up and walk around.
I'm an emotional mess too. I cried during a Disney movie (The Parent Trap) that Hollie and I were watching the other day. I've seen it so many times, and I still cried. I realize it's hormones, but I'm just sooooo emotional. Why can't our hormones make us giggle, instead of cry???
That's about it for now. While I'm at Bible Study, Shawn's going to work on putting the shower pictures below. I wish I could post all of them, but there are a ton. (Paige, I can't thank you enough for taking so many pictures. They're awesome!!!)
Still praying for baby Kaden.
