First "babies" gift!

If you're finding me through ICLW this month and want a quick synopsis of who I am, check out my post here!

I got a package in the mail yesterday from Gabby! It was soft and squishy from the outside so I couldn't wait to open it!

My heart totally melted when I opened it up! I loved the card too - which Gabby had "amended" by making it for multiples :)

She wrote:

L & Ducky - (real names of course)

I am beyond thrilled for you both! You are going to have perfect and beautiful baby girls! I am so glad to be a part of your journey. Those are 2 lucky baby girls! Enclosed is a non pink welcome baby! gift. But I do think you'll change your mind on pink! :)

xoxo Love, Gabby

I love them!! I seriously walked around with them on and off for the rest of the night! I may have cradled one just to give me some idea of how big one of the babies would be in my arms. I have hung them up on my dresser drawer pull now and I just look at them from time to time. That aqua blue one matches perfectly the half-painted nursery we have!

Of course I texted her to exhuberantly thank her for the "onesies." She texted me back, "It's a sleeper, not a onesie, rookie!!! haha!"

I started cracking up. L and I are SUCH rookies :)

It's been 5 days and I haven't asked for nor gotten a doppler heartbeat update. I'm starting to get anxious about it though, but I think this is an improvement. She said she'll be sending me a belly pic tomorrow (hopefully she'll also listen to the doppler) because this week she said she got huge (i just saw her Monday and she wasn't that big) and finally popped. Can't wait to see! Starting on Wednesday she had said that she thinks the babies are going through a growth spurt probably because I called them shorties at the U/S on Monday :)

17 weeks here we come!


  1. I am just so thrilled for you. What a wonderful gift!

  2. What a sweet gift! So excited for you!

  3. So very sweet of Gabby and those sleepers are precious. So happy for you!

  4. That was so awesome of Gabby to send those to you!

  5. Stopping from ICLW (#26) to say Congratulations on the expected arrival of your twin girls. Wishing you all the best!

  6. I found your blog through ICLW, though I myself forgot to sign up for it this month. Congrats on being pregnant and so near 17 weeks!

  7. Hi from ICLW (#61). Congratulations on your twin girls! So very very exciting!

  8. Hello from ICLW! What a sweet gift. :)

  9. Oh my god this is awesome! Gabby is a sweetheart truly! I love that she can joke with you calling you a rookie! adorable!

  10. Yay for baby gifts! That is too funny about the onesie vs. the sleeper. I'm sure you'll have the terminology down in no time. After all, you've mastered the IF terminology!
