We're Having Twins!

Well, okay.  My sister and her husband are having twins.  Twin boys, to be exact.  If you have sisters, you know that when they are having a baby (or two), you're almost as excited as when you're having a baby.  You can see how I would get confused, right?

So.  Have I told you about this yet?   I must have.  The evening of her first ultrasound, she told me over the phone.  All I could say was, "Get out!"  I must have said it ten times.  Then, I started to cry because...well, that's what I do when I'm really happy.  Everyone was (and still is) over-the-top thrilled about this.  She's due in May and this past weekend, we gave her and her boys a baby shower.  I thought I'd share a few photos with you.

My other sister compiled some great twin trivia for us all.  In case you want to check your twin knowledge, the answers are...
1) a, 2) c, 3) a, 4) a, 5) b, 6) b, 7) c, 8) c, 9) b, 10) c, 11) a, 12) b, 13) a, b and c, 14) a, 15) a.

The cakes read, "It's a Boy!" and "It's Another Boy!"  They were made by a friend of a friend of my other sister (her website).

My sister-in-law made two of these incredible diaper cakes to help decorate.  Guests signed the soft balls- one for each boy (my other sister's great idea)!

This is my gorgeously pregnant-with-twins sister.  She's measuring full term for a singleton and just right for having a couple months to go for twins.

We even borrowed a popcorn machine.

This last picture just makes me want to cry (more happy tears!).  These are my mom's, my other sister's and my hands feeling these boys move after the shower.  I think they were trying to tell us that they had a nice time at the party.

Either that or they just wanted us to start crying again:-). Pin It

  10. Such a blessing for your family! The shower pics are so beautiful...what fun.

  11. Brings back beautiful memories of my own twin pregnancy! What a fun shower you had. Does she know if they are identical or fraternal?
    Our boys have certainly been a blessing to us as I'm sure hers will be to her!
    I can't wait for one of my sisters to become pregnant... sure wish they'd hurry up & find someone to marry!
    Have a wonderful day - love the cakes

  12. SO lovely - great little bit of twin trivia too :-)

    Congratulations on your twins!

  13. That is twice the blessing, congrads, and God bless

  14. Let's see... My boys were due May 24th; 15 years ago. They were born at 34 1/2 weeks {april 16}. Fraternal, one has type A blood, the other, is type O. One is right handed, one is left handed. They weighed 4lb 11oz and 3lb 9oz- they only spent 13 days in the NICU. I found out that I was having twins right away, she's finding out rather late in the game! And she's blessed if she's still up and about and not on bed rest- I spent about 4 months on bed rest with mine. A twin preg. is just like any other preg. full term is 40 wks, I've know a few women who've gone over that with twins, one mom had two 10 lb'rs.

    If she's having identicals make sure she's checked for Twin to twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) it's very common, and can be fatally dangerous.

  15. Yay! My twins turned three last week. I have loved have two together--I blog about it every now. I'd love to have another set. . . .

  16. How WONDERFUL!!! SO exciting! :)
