As I had mentioned in previous blog posts, my pregnancy has rattled us with one surprise after another.
Surprise #1 - last summer, we were informed that we would need InVitro Fertilization in order to even get pregnant...
We were fortunate enough to get pregnant on the first round, and finding out while vacationing with my family in Maui was awesome!
Surprise #2 - After finding out we were pregnant, we were told for weeks that I was only carrying one, when in fact, I was carrying TWINS!
In January, we managed to sneak in one last trip to NYC to visit my brother and his girlfriend...
And only days after my two baby showers....
...came Surprise #3 - the totally unexpected 4 weeks of hospital bed rest - ugh. At least the dogs got to come for a visit!
And Surprise #4, our final surprise, came only days after I was sent home from hospital bed rest. At 33 weeks pregnant and 4 weeks away from my scheduled c-section... I went into labor!
Yes, it's official, we are now proud parents of twins!
Meet Christopher Beckham Hewett (Beckham) Born at only 3 lbs 13 oz
And Estelle Rene' Hewett (Stella) Born at only 3 lbs 11 oz
This picture of me & Stella really puts their "tiny-ness" into perspective...
Needless to say, they are still in the hospital, but we hope to have them home soon. In the mean time, I am putting a few final touches on the nursery, so I'm hoping to have it posted within the next few weeks. Until then, I thought I'd share my final nursery mood board with you as kind of a sneak peek.
I didn't end up using any of the fabrics from my previous nursery posts...But I did stick with the furniture layout which I posted about HERE. I'm going to go ahead and blame my indecisiveness on my pregnancy hormones :-)
I'll be sure to post pictures as soon as I wrap up all of the finishing touches!
And for those of you who have recently inquired about services...I am back from maternity leave in August, but I am booked with "in home" clients until January 2013. However, I do have openings for online design boards starting in mid August, so please email me if you are interested! Emily@awelldressedhome.com
And although I am officially on maternity leave, I do plan on popping in from time to time to expose some of my recent projects, which I posted about HERE. I am hoping to be able to get them photographed within the next month or two.
