Sunday was my baby shower. I was 2 days shy of 28 weeks and so glad I didn't wait any longer to have it. The weather was absolutely perfect and our girls got super spoiled. My MiL and SiL hosted at my in-law's lake house and did such a nice job. We are so lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives.
There were about 30 people there including friends, co-workers, family members, and family friends. W and a bunch of the guys went out on boats and drank beer, a great alternative to watching women oooh and ahhh over cute baby things.
We received both car seats, a double stroller, and so much other great stuff. We also got lots of adorable clothes for them.
There were 6 babies there making me so excited for all of the playmates our girls are going to have. One of the biggest surprises? My friend Tam.ara made it, 5 days after delivering her little guy Car.mine. It was so nice to see her, especially not in the hospital.
Here are some photos from the day:

We we got home that night W and I went through the stuff since he hadn't really seen it. We sorted through a vast majority before I started to feel super overwhelmed.
The reality is starting to set in that we are really going to have 2 babies to take care of. Watching my sister with my nephew made me realize how much work it really is. I sat on the couch and cried as W hugged me and reassured me that everything was going to be great.
Since then, whenever I think about these little girls I get so excited but also so scared. I know we will do it like every other set of twin parents in the past, but I know it's not going to be easy. Now if I could only reign in the tears when I think about it, I'd be great. Holy hormones third trimester!
