Have you missed me?

I feel like I've missed myself. We were gone over the weekend to Wisconsin Dells for the annual Midwest RTS reunion. It was honestly the most fun I've had in a long time as we could just relax and let the kids swim (the pool was wonderful for little ones because you didn't have to be in there with them) while we talked with other groovy grownups who also have RTSweeties! It was good for us to see Caden in his element - around tons of people who embraced him and loved him for exactly who he is. We both said we were very proud of him. We realize now that he is an EXCELLENT communicator. School has been telling us this, telling us that Caden tries in EVERY possible way to communicate and does eventually get his point across. He's very interactive, very VERY sociable. It was just fun to observe him! And his RTS brothers and sisters? Ahhhhhhhhhhhdorable.

The weather here just stinks. Sure, the days are longer but there's no sunshine and it's windy and FREEZING - literally. Who's ready for spring with me? Doesn't help that I am nesting already and wanting to get a TON done. When it finally warms up I will be too big and uncomfortable to do anything. Harumph.

Today is the halfway point of the dating of this pregnancy. I am 20 weeks today. Hard to believe it's only been 5 weeks since we found out it was twins, and just 3 weeks since we found out about them both being girls. It's especially hard to believe when you see the amount of clothing I have already accumulated. Now, in my defense a LOT of it has been gifts...turns out I am not the only one who thinks shopping for identical twin girls sounds like fun!

Yes, we have missed you. The weekend was a blast, but a whirlwind. I wish I could go back and slo-mo through it.

Caden was just a rowdy little prince this weekend. I really, really enjoyed his sense of humor - we are a match in that regard.

And yeah - double the cute girl shopping! So fun.

Take care, birthday girl.

I just finished blogging about my window shopping for my twin girls! So are you going to dress them identically, or matchy-matchy?

Tena said...

I haven't decided yet MusicalMom! I have some identical sets, and some that just match. I think the identical route is cute with some things...time will tell!

We had a blast too at the reunion. Now when I read your blog I can put a face to the words.. I was really impressed with Caden. Noah loved him .. Wish we could do the weekend over again. It felt like being around family but family that really "gets it".
