Twin/Gender Reveal Party

It's a.....

Girl and Boy!!!

We were so excited last Monday when we found out we were having one of each.  Baby A is a girl and Baby B is a boy.  It's going to be so nice to now be able to refer to them as he or she, instead of it, or A or B. 

We had our party with our immediate families yesterday to share the big news that we were having twins, as well as their genders.  Needless to say, everyone was completely shocked.  Jeff and I were both taken aback a little bit by everyone's was way more than we expected.  I expected quiet dumbfoundedness (is that a word?), and instead we got many tears - practically on the verge of sobbing.  I've only seen my dad cry two times in my whole life, and even he was crying pretty hard.  I think his reaction got my tears flowing the hardest.  Afterwards he jumped on the phone and started calling all of his was pretty cute :)

And guess what else?  We even received some baby gifts!  My mom and Jeff's sister had brought with them both a boy and girl gift, with the intention of returning whichever one we didn't need, and instead we kept them both, haha! 

(our loot)
Jeff's sister is letting us have their baby furniture, and they went ahead and brought down the changing table with them this weekend.  So we have one piece of furniture and the stuff pictured above in our house, which is a little surreal.  I still am having a hard time completely letting go and believing this is really going to happen.  But then I tell myself I'm not sure if I'm ever going to stop worrying and completely let my guard down so I suppose I should roll with it and start having fun. 
But seriously, how cute is it going to be to see the babes side-by-side in these little outfits?



  1. Yay! Congratulations! I can't believe you are already half-way there!

  2. Oh Jenny, this made me cry!!! Congratulations to you and your family!! I can just imagine the excitement and love that filled the room that day!! So so happy for you!!! Xoxox

  3. Lovely loot! Congratulations, one of each, so perfect.

  4. 'Soooo fun! I love that you kept the fact that you're having twins a surprise too. congrats!!!

  5. Super duper exciting! (not gonna lie, BG twins are my favorite and I'm totally jealous) So, so glad things are going well. I completely get the whole not-ready-to-relax part. I keep telling myself at 24w I can sit back and enjoy, but let's be honest- I'll always worry about something!

    Love the cupcakes!

  6. Congrats, that's awesome. My husband is jealous because I keep begging him for us to try for another because I want a girl so badly (lol....I love my boys but it sure would be nice). I never "relaxed" during my entire twin pregnancy and I regret it. You might as well enjoy it and remind yourself that we are just jaded from our difficulties. Congrats and if you have any twin questions I am happy to help in any way I can.

  7. Congrats girlie! This is amazing news!!! I think boy/ girl twins would be SO SO fun!!!!!! Oh and Deklan has the blue seahorse and uses it EVERY night! He LOVES that thing!

  8. This is awesome!! So much fun!!!! I love your loot!
