25 weeks!

Happy Easter! I have two cute little bunnies hopping around in my belly! Must be from the Starburst jellybeans. I can’t stop eating them!

I can’t believe that one week from today, surrounded by loved ones, I will be attending my baby shower. Mine! For my babies! We are flying home on Friday and we have an action packed weekend. My paternal grandmother is hosting a little lunch shindig on Saturday. My father has been estranged from his entire family, including his own kids, for years. I’m told he may come. I am not getting my hopes up, but my heart and mind are open. I think I’m ready to see him. I guess in my heart of hearts I hope a tiny bit that he does show up. After that, my mom is hosting a dinner. My mom is estranged from her family (and I guess I am, too) so it will be a small event, mostly my dad’s family (I refer to my stepdad as “dad”). Then the big shower will be on Sunday. I am so looking forward to it. A dear friend from out of state is even coming!

This weekend is going to be amazing. All of these people celebrating the lives of my babies! I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend a weekend. It will be a whirlwind, but worth every moment.
