More Good News

I wake up yesterday evening and I'm checking my email as usual and I see an email from Scrapbook News and Review. Nothing unusual and I figure it's just a reply to something I had submitted for publication. To my surprise, it's an offer to come on board as a staff member and be a regular contributor! How cool is that?! Of course I said yes and I've already been looking to see what kinds of projects I can get my hands into.

For anyone interested in a subscription, just click on the below link and it will take you to the E-zine. Subscriptions are only $4.99. You can't beat that price and since everything is online, there is no paper to clutter your scrapspace. A win, win situation.

Going Home

Today's the day. The OB/GYN and pediatrician are releasing my sis and both babies to come home today. They were supposed to be released yesterday but one of the babies is not wanting to eat so they kept everyone one day longer just to keep on eye on her intake. He said it's normal for premies to not know how to suck properly and it takes a bit for them to learn. Cristy was so scared so was going to have to leave one of them in the hospital when she went home. A huge relief for her. Happy Day!

Overall I don't things could have gone any smoother. Neither of the babies had any breathing or health problems from the early delivery. Cristy has not had any complications from the C-section and is recovering well.

Now comes the fun part - the spoiling!

Memoir Of A Baby Shower

Today we had my sister's baby shower, which was a lot of fun. I found a game that was a total hit - the dirty diaper game. You melt different types of chocolate bars and them smoosh them in diapers an you have people try to guess what type of bar it was. A laugh riot!

This was her shower cake. Turned out really cute, even if I say so myself (yes, I made it).

And just a few of her gifts, some baby clothes and two sets of handmade blankets which were beautiful! Then there two new carseats and a double stroller and of course lots of diapers and wipes.

She is going into week 35 now and the doctor is telling her that most twins deliver at the 35-36 week range. Just hoping now she holds out for just a bit longer so they can both put on some weight.
