My Sis His Bro

This has all happened so quick that I have not even "blogged" about it. My lil sis (22) is having her first baby (she is married to my husbands lil brother) and she went for her mid pregnancy sonogram. She had NO intentions of finding out what the sex of the baby was. Then THERE WERE TWO!!! OK so this was a big deal! Her husband immediately said "tell us what they are"! TWO LIL IDENTICAL GIRLS!!! So needless to say we are all shocked! They totally missed the fact that there were TWO KIDS in the first two sonograms. So WOW there you go. I have alot of sewing to do! They are due in November but are not expected to go past 32-34 wks. She has the rarest form of twins, they share the same sac and there is no membrane separating them. There is a high risk of the babies becoming entangled, but we are praying for the best and so far we have no reason to doubt that she will do just fine! Did I mention the fact that I am planning a baby tea for 110 people in 3 wks. Yeah. So Im gunna be a little busy. She goes in for observation in three wks, and will stay till the babies are born. She is gunna take her sewing machine with her and catch up on some sewing (burp cloths, blankets,ect..) I am working on the dresses and booties. Rae and Jake

Oh, congratulations!! How sweet that a) you're having twin girls in the family, & b) your little sister is marrying your husband's little brother. You could just slot into my husband's family as his father's younger brother married his mother's younger sister!! She was also a twin, we have twin girls & there are 2 more sets of twins, both fraternal & idential in the McClellands. AMAZING!! Oh, good luck!! I had big healthy fraternal twin girls second time around, so we had girl, twin girls, then a boy. Love it!! BTW, your sister is beautiful!! They'll have beautiful babies & cousins for your trio. Love Posie

What an amazing surprise! I'll keep them in my thoughts as she continues her pregnancy. (And you are quite the brave soul to host a tea for 110!)

Hello there, I like your blog so much and I feel like knowing you since childhood and we are not in the same country, we don't speak the same language but still...
SO congats about your sister!!
(In my religion (christian orthodox) 2 brothers are not allowed to married 2 sisters unless the wedding takes place the same day-same hour. Funny isn't it??)
