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 reaction....it 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 friends....it 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!
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?
