Of course, every new mom begins to realize that the necessities are just as important as the nice-ities. Especially with two, if the buying guide says you will need 8-4oz bottles, that means 16 at the least (I'm factoring in that with two new babies, there will be little time to wash, so extras may be needed!)
But, then there are gifts that are given that have nothing to do with need, although they MAY serve a purpose. They are a reflection of the love that is already waiting for the twins. My mom spent many, many, many hours at the pedal of her sewing machine, working on this "project" - that's what she affectionately called it.
All the fabrics are designed by Amy Butler. And, it was all hand cut, laid out, pieced, sew and even hand-quilted.
This is a closeup of one of the 9 squares that make the quilt. Every single one is different.
We have pretty much everything that we need for the arrival of the twins. And, I keep telling myself that the stores will be open after they get here - so if there's something we've missed, we can certainly go get it!
Yesterday, I did some final work on the nursery including putting up the monitors and making the pom-pom mobile - or what resembles a mobile.
