A Few Thoughts

The photo shoot was sooooo fun!! Emily is a great photographer, and she really knows how to put a person at ease! But the best thing about it is, she KNOWS me.  We go way back.  She knew how to capture the real ME, and not silly, contrived posing that was fake and not me.  She's working on editing and stuff now, and I can't wait to see the proofs.  Let me tell you, if you live locally, you really must pick Emily as your photographer!

Right now, Pennie is awake and I can feel her little hands poking me.  Olivia seems to be pretty sleepy lately.  It used to be just the opposite, with Pennie sleeping and Olivia awake the most.  I get to see them again next Monday, when they will do an anatomical study on both Babies, measuring everything and studying every organ to make sure everything's a go for each Baby.  These always, always make me nervous, but my ultrasound tech, Kiersten, is the very, very best.  She's sweet and fun, but best of all, she's a Twin Mom too, and that means she's been where I am and it makes me feel less alone.  So far, from everything they've been able to see, The Babies look good and healthy! I'll update Monday.

I'm excited to report that a Baby Shower is apparently going to become reality on November 6th! I can't believe it! Two awesome friends decided they wanted to bless our family and get all of our friends together to celebrate The Babies.  I'm just so excited! The best part is, my girls are invited and they get to help bake and cook and decorate and plan! So, I over-invited, just because I want so much to share the joy and happiness of The Babies with alllllll of our many friends.  I registered at Target, and that was kinda weird, since the last shower I had was for Sofia, over 5 years ago, and I didn't register with her, since I didn't know the church we were going to at the time was going to have a shower for us till the very last minute.  Registering for The Babies really made me aware of how much we really need for them!! If you're local and want to come for some awesome food and awesome fellowship, contact me via email and I'll give you all the details!

My husband and I went to a Gaither concert Friday night with my folks.  We've been to 3 or 4 concerts, and I have to say, this one was the best.  Our favorite groups, the Martins and the Isaacs, were there and wow, it was just a great night of the most sublime, extreme talent! To think, years ago, when my folks were wanting us to watch a Gaither video, I wouldn't because I just KNEW it was going to be old fogey music!! Ha.  It was a great night, but a loooooong night! We got back at almost 2 in the morning, and for this very pregnant lady, that was just toooo late! I had a Gaither hangover the next day!!!

And boy, do I have some sort of hangover today! We had a bit of a late night last night too, and I am sooo tired today! I plan on being lazy today!! And, I have a wonderful cold, which is enhanced, or maybe I should say aggravated, by being pregnant! Ugh.  Chapped lips and dry skin to boot!! So, rest is on the agenda for me today.  It's so beautiful outside today, and I have a great view!!

Take care and I'll be posting again soon!

I have to say first that I am, and always will be, EXTREMELY green that you live so close to Emily and her mad skillz. I can't wait to see what she's created with y'all!

So glad you are getting a shower! I bet it's so much fun to register again. I used to love doing that. I'll be praying for your ultrasound.

And as far as the dry skin goes, the VERY best stuff I can find is Nivea Essentially Enriched. Since our move (with water changes, ect.) and the change in seasons, mine has been really dry, too. I LOVE this stuff and the smell makes me happy, to boot.

Good to hear from you, friend. :)
