It’s a sad and dreary day here in Central Florida (it hasn’t stopped raining yet!), but, since I’ve had so many questions on the topic of late, I wanted to share a little preggo update with everyone!
Yes, we are having TWO GIRLS! I think we’re still at the 50% thrilled 50% terrified levels, but we’re getting used to the idea!
We actually found out early when we went in for a routine ultrasound (I get LOTS of those since we’re having twins) and they asked us if we wanted to know the sexes of the babies. Without hesitation, my sweet husband gave a resounding YES, and I thought, well, there goes our gender reveal party! He was so excited to find out, I couldn’t say no!
Oh, and don’t let his face in the pic above fool you – girls are EXACTLY what he wanted. Something about how much girls always make over their daddies…crazy man.
So here are the most common questions I’m getting these days:
So our twins will be here sometime in mid-August, and right now our main project is getting their room ready. Almost time to decorate! Until now the room has been used pretty much as a “project” room – it morphs into whatever is needed at the time. And a lot of that has been storage – so you can imagine the fun I’m having cleaning it up!
But soon, I’ll be able to actually jump into some decorating, which is the fun part! So when Marie Nieves contacted me to see if I wanted to publish her post about decorating a bedroom for twins…well, yes, of course! She’s got some great ideas here – check it out!
When you are expecting a baby, you want to prepare everything for its arrival, including decorating its room perfectly. What happens when you are expecting two babies, though? Well, it is twice as exciting because you are getting double bundles of joy. Decorating a nursery for twins will require a lot of imagination and inventiveness. You will have to create a balanced design while keeping in mind that your children are different and that they will grow up to have different interests and preferences, so include a certain dose of individuality. Easier said than done right? Read on to get some clarity on the matter.
Define Territories with Paint
When we are talking about a bedroom for twins, defining each twin’s territory (no matter if it is a boy-boy, boy-girl or a girl-girl) is essential. As your kids are getting a little older they will want to know which side of the room is theirs. That might sound like a silly thing to us, but kids feel important when they know that something is just for them. Painting two adjacent walls in different colors is the best way to set a boundary. Just make sure that the two colors pair nicely. For instance, if you are expecting a boy and a girl, think about Pantone’s twin colors of the year (how symbolic) Rose Quartz and Serenity. For two boys, consider medium brown and medium blue, etc.
Well, y’all, over the past few years this blog has seen it’s share of special announcements, but I must say, the one I have for you today tops them ALL.
Can you guess what it is?!
Let’s just say The Road to Domestication is about to get even busier, because…
Oh yes, and I’m pregnant WITH TWINS!
(Told you it was big!)
We’ve been getting tons of questions since we made the official announcement, so I’m hoping I can address all of those questions in this lil’ blog post!
