So yeah…it almost feels like this week is when the pregnancy was all of a sudden ‘legitimate’ and we hit the ground running. We have an immense amount to do, but more than that…to learn! Tomorrow marks our first of three multiple birthing classes, and ready or not (especially for my husband), we’re gonna be exposed to all sorts of new things – and likely images – and all of a sudden, it’s going to be very REAL, you know? It’s friggin’ exciting…
Also, we’ve decided on a number of items for the babies – our little girls – and are entirely confused over many other decisions to be made. That is where my mommy friends and readers will hopefully weigh in. You will see that I have added a tab here on this blog called the wish list that is, essentially, going to act as a ‘registry in progress’, starting out as a list of what we THINK we want, transition based on feedback into final decisions as to the list of must haves, and then become the ‘official’ registry. So…baby mommas out there, sharpen your editing skills and help a girl out!
Hoping to get a number of items up on the list tonight, but please feel MORE than free to make suggestions for this hapless new mommy to be of twins in advance of the lists – any help is welcomed, and links to the products you are recommending are even better!
Things to keep in mind:
- We have a small home with limited storage, but we are having twins. How the heck can we avoid getting two of everything, and where are there opportunities to pick up 2, 3 and 4-in-one convertible items
- Although I hate pink, I know we will put pink physically ON the little ladies, however the nursery will be decorated in white with white furniture and bright, saturated coloured photos and hopefully blankets, crib sheets etc. If you know where I can get crib sheets n stuff that isn’t pastel and filled with little cartoon characters, let me know!
- We know what stroller we want and what car seats we want, but the rest is up for debate. Please debate – it will help us be certain of what we want!
So yeah. New carpets are now on order, paints have been researched and will be purchased soon, and ya know…stuff is happening!
