It's the year of my babies' birth! (God willing of course). Gabby is home "safe" in MA again - she sent me a text yesterday that she was one hour away from safety when they were on their way back which made me laugh.
The pre-birth order/parentage petition has STILL not been heard in court yet, and I'm beginning to worry. Past 31 weeks with twins...if they are born before that order is in place I will be furious with our attorneys. They said they will be going to the courthouse first thing Monday morning if they don't hear back sooner.
I copied Gabby on the email to ask her to please not give birth before it's in place. Her response:
Haha, you're not the only one wishing this! Getting huge.... (other things)...
Happ to be in the year of your babies (and thankful they held on until 2013 at least!). [Gabby's au pair]'s boyfriend comes to NYC on Thursday so she's going to be on/off vacation over the next 2.5 weeks, lets hope the babies don't come until February! :)
Good night. Happy 2013, so glad we had a wonderful 2012 and will forever be a part of each other's lives! You guys are amazing people and are already amazing parents. Can't wait to see your beautiful shining baby girls in real life!
Times like these make me think she really does like me and make me feel like a fool for being so insecure. But at other times I wonder.
We really need to think about getting her a big gift for when the babies come. Any ideas? She is getting paid for this, and I am already worried about having to pay for her maternity leave and C-section fee just as I go on maternity leave and won't be getting paid at all. Originally I was going to get her and her husband a weekend away to Stowe VT and pay for everything...but it got to be too pricey (like ~$1000). And then I was thinking of a Pandora bracelet with a bunch of charms to represent both her kids and mine, but I don't know if she likes jewelry. And there would be lots of purple in there and her favorite colors are turquoise and orange! So that is questionable.
Yet I want it to be meaningful as well. If anyone has any ideas - sentimental or anything, please suggest them! I'm definitely struggling.
