Saturday marked 28 weeks for these babies of mine! I can't believe we have made it this far. I feel the babies moving around all the time now. Actually, we can SEE the babies moving around also. Such a cool thing to watch my belly ripple and jump. Hubby actually got to see it the other night too. He was so excited.
I still worry. I don't think that will ever stop. I worry about all the things that could go wrong, because I know that it DOES happen sometimes. My worst fear is to have one of them be delivered stillborn. I know too many people, in real life and in the blogoshere, that have had stillborn babies to not have that be a real fear. I will worry until I get to see them and hold them, and then a whole new set of worries will begin!
Anyway, enough of that! Saturday was also my second baby shower! This time it was with my side of the family and friends. I had a few friends from high school and college that came and it was so great to see them! I can't even begin to express how much it meant to me that so many came to help celebrate my babies.
Saturday also happened to be my Grandma's 80th birthday. After the shower, the men in the family joined us and we had pizza and cake to celebrate her birthday.
Here are a few pictures from the day:

Do you remember me telling you about my cousins announcing their pregnancy via Facebook? The same cousins that announced at Christmas last year that they were pregnant, only to later have a miscarriage? Well, anyway, they just had their baby girl in October. Between my newest niece, my cousin's new baby, and these twins, we are going to have lots of babies running around our family! By the way, I should mention that I am incredibly happy for my cousins and their adorable little girl. I just had a hard time with both of their pregnancy announcements when they happened.

Hubby is pretty funny about holding babies. When they are newborn, he absolutely has to sit down to hold them. He is petrified of "breaking" them. He loves babies and loves to hold them, but he must be sitting down. Actually, he has recently gotten better and will sometimes stand to hold our niece, but he absolutely refused to stand while holding these two. I think he's going to have to get used to it pretty quickly, because in a few months, he's not going to have a choice!

Okay, and now I will close by sharing my 28 week belly pics:
