How did it get to be the Friday before Christmas just like that? Weeks ago I put Lily's preschool Christmas show on the calendar *sure* that I would not be able to attend, given the fact that I would be at home with newborn twins. Well, guess where I got to go this morning? It was adorable and wonderful to be surrounded by so many beloved friends and family members to hear the story of Jesus' birth. An unexpected gift, and one that I gladly accepted, and I even convinced Ben to put on his Christmas bowtie.
And speaking of beloved family members, will you just look at adorable baby Grace? One of the cutest babies ever, not that I am biased or anything. We all adore her. Irene and I overheard Hugo leaning into her and saying "Love you, baby Grace." over and over again. There's nothing like a cousin's love (except maybe a sibling's love), and this girl has a lot of it and more on the way.
Babies are doing great and still hanging out in-utero. Having spent the past many months saying "If only we get to 37 weeks!" we are both thrilled to be here, and now scratching our heads a little bit and wondering what, exactly, to do. And, despite the fact that I am daily getting more and more eager (read: impatient) to meet these babies, we know that the answer is to relax and let them come on their own time, whenever that may be. I wish I was as chill about it in real life as I come across sounding in that last sentence. Let's just say that being almost 38 weeks pregnant with twins is quite the physical endeavor. But, one day at a time we're hanging in there... guesses for an arrival date welcome!
