"Ralston" Family Baby Shower

This past Saturday my mom, sisters and friends threw me a WONDERFUL baby shower!  I am so grateful for them and all of their hard work.  It was so much fun seeing friends and family I have not seen in so long.  The food was delicious, the cake was too die for (I seriously ate the left over cake all weekend long) and Julie's famous cookies were so good that people in my family, who I will leave nameless, were fighting over them.  Piper and Phoebe will be the best dressed little baby girls in town.  A special thank you must be given to my sister Natalie for flying out all the way from Maryland.  I was so glad to have both of my sisters there to share in this special day.  It was also very special to have my grandma there too who will be 94 in April.  My girls are going to be so lucky to have Gigi around.

I am 26 weeks now and the belly is growing more and more everyday!  I am feeling great right now and am enjoying every moment of my 2nd trimester (from what I have read and heard the 3rd trimester is not so much fun, especially with twins).

I think I have said before that I am working on the nursery, well that project is still a work in progress. It is amazing to me how slowly I have moved on it.  Time has just gotten away from me.

James and I have an appointment with my OBGYN in two weeks.  We are hoping to get new ultra sound pictures that we can post then.

Week 24

At the beginning of the week James and I went to see my amazing doctor in the hopes of getting more pictures of our precious baby girls.  I am sad to say that we did get to see them but we did not get new pictures.  I was not feeling well that day so I think my doctor was trying to get me home as quickly as possible.  Our next appointment is the first week of April where we were promised more measurements and detailed information about the twins.  Until that time I will still post updates and pictures of my ever growing baby bump.  I feel like my belly is growing every single day!!!

Last night James and I hit up the maternity store in hopes of finally getting me some maternity essentials.  My mom bought me some super cute things at Christmas time but I am in need of a good pair of jeans and maybe a few other things.  Despite my high hopes and many choices to choose from I left the store without a new pair of jeans.  It is very hard being a tall girl.  None of the jeans were long enough!  I think my next stop will be online shopping.  I did get a couple super cute tops and James got a double scoop of ice cream for being such a good sport!
