The Beginning of the 3rd Trimester

Maybe someday...just maybe...in between diaper changes, feedings and naps, MAYBE I'll post more often to this blog, and maybe I'll tell friends and family about it so someone actually reads my posts. Time will tell, I guess! Anyway, I hit 30 weeks today, and am just now starting to feel like "it" will happen soon. My due date is September 15 (moved up a day for whatever reason) and if I don't go into labor by the 2nd (38 weeks) my delivery will be scheduled. I'm just hoping to make it to a safe 36 weeks, but for some reason, I have a feeling it may happen sooner than that. My body feels different than it has the past few weeks, so I'm assuming it's getting ready for the beginning stages of labor. Dan and I are as prepared as we can be for whenever the boys decide to show up.

Summer in Buffalo has been cool and comfortable so far for me. I love hearing others complain about the unseasonably low temps and rain... Inside, I'm thanking my lucky stars that the heat and humidity still haven't permanently arrived. I don't think my feet can swell anymore than they already have!

I had my baby shower just about a month ago and it turned out absolutely wonderful, although it was a loooong exhausting day for me. I can't believe how generous everyone was, and it was great to see so many friends and family celebrating the upcoming arrival of the twins. Mom, Mom P and Missy threw the shower for me and I was deeply involved in the decorating and cupcake making - how could I not be? I love themed-parties and decorating! My childhood best friend designed my invites with two little blue birds on them, and I took it from there. She (Kim over at http://www.thetomkatstudio.com/ - check her craftiness out- she's amazing!) inspired the entire theme and will be blogging about it on her site soon. I'll attach the link instead of going into too much detail myself, because I'm sure she'll do a much better job of elaborating on the details then I ever could ;)

Stay tuned for the real shower post (well, at least a link to Kim's post) and a post on the completed nursery. It's done, but we're still straightening up, organizing and adding the finishing touches. It's definitely a bit strange seeing two cribs in there instead of one! Dan is just finishing up an incredible Dutch door for the nursery (yep, he made it from an old 5-paneled door bought at an antique thrift store) so our dogs won't be in there 24/7. I love it - he did a great job! Can't wait to see it up. I'm sure it will be used down the road for many a puppet show, or something else to that effect!
