scott/polson shower

Shhhh, don't tell my doctor but I went to Brett's parent's house for a baby shower. Trust me the car ride was way shorter than going to the doctor's office and I was directed straight from the car to Sandy's couch where I remained for the entire shower. They still allowed me bathroom privileges. Well, we now feel like we have everything that we wanted to have on hand prior to their birth. I am sure we will discover stuff that we will "need" no doubt, but for now we feel comfortable with everything in the house. It kind of feels like it is closing in on me a bit. It sits in the living room stacked up and mocking me day after day until Brett has time to bring it up to the boys room. And then I peek into the boys room (on my way downstairs) and its free range mocks me there. I think this organization personality trait does have its down side. I have a hard time letting things go or allowing disorganization. If you have been to my house, you know that everything has its place and most likely there is a label to remind us. The organization in the babies closet may fall apart after the boys are born, but knowing me I don't think it is likely. Back to the shower....everyone was there! We were so lucky to be surrounded by so much family. Even Grandma Scott made the trip from Wilmar. We had a blast and it was a joy to see family since again we missed out on so much holiday fun.

This was also the first time that we got to meet Elsa, which is Brett's cousin's daughter. I had to put the picture of Titus and Elsa up. I just wanted to make the point that he is a natural with babies so I feel pretty lucky that he will be Ethan and Bennett's older cousin. I am sure that Titus will be ready to babysit in 6 months or so.
Here we are with just a few of our many gifts. These boys are spoiled! Thank you to all of our family for the support.

Side Note: Today is 34 weeks, however, our appointment is tomorrow. They have been changed to Wednesdays for the remainder of the pregnancy. I'll update tomorrow with that.
