Good News

We awoke to good news this morning. My hubby's 7 siblings were in a group chat on their phones. Last night a younger sister started a thread that her youngest daughter just got engaged. She is the 'baby' of her generation. It was nice to have a good news chat like that. We have had enough of the bad news texts over heath concerns and deaths. This morning my son picked me up to go shopping. That was alot of fun. We did not go to the mall that I was hoping we would. Instead we went to a couple of sports stores, one of which was a golf store. We stopped in at the baby's store before we came back here. truth be told, I spent more on the babies then I did on our son. I bought them their first brand name workout jacket and pants, and 3 short rompers, a dress and each an adorable white sun hat with tiny little red maple leaves on them. They have to wear these for Canada Day at least. I think that they will be able to wear them all summer long-I hope so, they are super cute. Funny thing I noticed is that those babies are real head turners. People stop and smile and talk to us asking if they are identical twins. Our son is used to it, I was not. They made alot of people smile. When they babble their version of I love you people laughed. ~Photo is mine

I am so glad about the great news from your hubby's siblings. Those little hats must be so nice, I hope you can get a photo of the twins wearing their "Canada Day" hat. Your babies are so cute that I am not surprised that people smile at them and ask if they are identical twins.

Thank you. The niece that got engaged is like a sister to our son, they are so close. I bought the girls each a pretty white cotton dress with blue flowers on it, and a white shirt to go under it, as the dress is kind of strappy, the little hats will look adorable with that outfit. I hope that they take lots of pictures next weekend when they go away and we will get lots after that.

@Juliaacv I hope they will take plenty of photos, those babies are so beautiful. They are changing growing up, they are very similar, I imagine that people take them for identical twins.

@LadyDuck We see that Willow is longer, as she has always been, but as she gains weight it goes to her length and that adorable little Harper the weight gain goes to her plumpness. She has the cutest chubby cheeks. My hubby and I give thanks that they are growing, they were so tiny for so long. Both had no body fat, seeing dimples is a welcome sight at just 3.5 months.

So are they identical twins? I can't remember if I asked you this before.

Everyone asks if they are identical, they look identical to others, but they are fraternal and we can tell them apart. Originally we thought that Harper had her Mom's complexion, which is very fair, but now that she has sensitive skin, our son wonders if she has my colouring. These things change during the first 6 months or so.

Oh no, I hope she isn't going to have skin allergies, I can't wear a lot of fabrics that other women can so I am stuck with either cotton or silk and I don't care much for the things I've seen that is made of silk plus it's really hard to maintain. I also have to use fragrance free detergents etc, it's a beach.

@rebelann So far she cannot tolerate baby wipes, they must use a regular soft cloth and warm water to wash her bottom. She may outgrow this, but my skin has always been sensitive as long as I can remember. Our son had sensitive skin, which he outgrew. I couldn't use laundry soap on any of his things until he was about 14 months old. I had to do a hot water wash and hope for the best.

@Gillygirl She has her entire life to walk, she can be carried for the time being. Willow likes to stand when we hold her.

@Juliaacv I am glad you have good news to share. Congrats on the engagement. I can see you going crazy seeing all those tiny clothes and wanting all of them but could not buy all that you found but, bought what you could for the babies. It does not surprise me that you spent more for the babies than you did for your son. They are such tiny things to spoil and he is all grown up and still can be spoiled but not like the babies.

We really did have alot of fun together, that was the reason for the outing. Our son almost picked up a pair of new golf shoes, but he was torn, so he settled on just a regular pair of Nike shoes. He needed a new pair, and they are going away next weekend, so they will get some use then. The twins got lots and lots of different clothing, most of which will fit them right now, only 1 outfit won't fit for a few more months.

@Juliaacv I am so glad you had a lot of fun. Nikes are nice to get. I have not worn them in ages. Since he needed a new pair of Nikes good thing he got them. I hope the twins will not outgrow their clothing so will need more than the outfit that they can wear in a few more months.

Yes, a wedding to look forward to. I'm not sure how long of an engagement they will have before the big day, but I look forward to it. In the golf store, 3 teenagers who worked there all congregated over in our area looking at the twins. They were so young, and even the boys said that they were so cute. Buying for 2 adds up, so I put a dent into that for them for some cooler clothes.

@much2say I don't mind spending on the twins, that is what Nannies do for their grands. Our son mentioned that they may be going away for the long weekend next weekend, so they will have lots of new clothes to pack for the girls.

I have never gone out of my way to speak to anyone with a baby that I didn't know, but people do, and that is fun. I even had a few people tell me that I am a lucky lady as they are so adorably cute. Hearing them babble just melts my heart.

When they babble, it sounds like 'agoo' but to us grandparents and their parents, we swear they are saying 'I love you'. Willlow is a Granddaddy's girl, she just loves being with him, they are on the same wave length I think. They both recognize our faces and respond with smiles and giggles and agoos.

Yes, it was a fun time together. I still need to get to the mall for a pair of new flip flops, but I will do that another weekend. Today I am hibernating from the heat and strong sun. We are really excited about the news of the wedding. I am looking forward to when they release a wedding date.

They aren't identical. They have different complexions, different sized heads, and even their hands and feet differ in size.
