She has been the one I have worried/wondered about in all this process of growing our family. How will it affect her? Will she let God use this to mold her? Will she love these babies unconditionally?
Well, let me tell you. The day before we received word to come get the twins, we were blessed with a baby shower. At one point in the shower I saw her sitting by herself in the corner, obviously sad. When I went to her to love on her, my thoughts were that she might be feeling neglected. She said with tears in her eyes, "You're not supposed to have a shower without babies! I can't wait for them to get here." Oh, how sweet. I later explained that most showers were before the baby came, but that's neither here nor there.
I knew that she would have a hard time waiting on us to get home with the girls. There would be little sleep and little schooling going on while we were gone, but a whole lot of bouncing around and squealing with impatience. Her Grandmother did her best to channel that energy, but I know she must have been exhauted by week's end. :)
She made this sign and made the baby's faces out of pom poms. Totally cute! She's there, too. The yellow, as well as Gmother with white hair.
