Twin Blankets for Twin Girls
One of my best friends gave birth to twin baby girls last week, and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Evelyn Marie and Brooke Renee were born on August 15th at 5:52 and 5:54pm, and both were 5 lbs, 10 oz.
As some of you know, Renee was supposed to be in my wedding this past July, and even after she told me she was pregnant, everything was still a go for her to come out here to Nashville. However, a few weeks after she ordered her bridesmaid dress, she gave me a call with the wonderful and unexpected news. She was having TWINS!! Unfortunately, she would not be able to fly after her 2nd trimester (and my wedding would be in her 7th month of pregnancy), so she wasn’t able to attend the wedding. But she was with us in spirit! And what a marvelous reason for not being able to come!
Of course, I had to make 2 baby blankets for her. One pink and one purple for two beautiful baby girls.
I gave Renee several patterns to choose from, and she chose this pattern for both blankets, and I think it was an excellent choice.
Renee and I have literally been friends since birth (we even have pictures of us as babies together in the nursery at school where both our mom’s taught). I can’t believe one of my friends actually has a set of twins!
And twin GIRLS to top it off! I have a feeling that there are going to be a lot of ruffles and bows in these two little girls’ future. Renee always does such a great job dressing up her older daughter, Bella, and I know these girls will be no different.
I’m so happy for you, Renee and Ahmet, and I can’t wait to meet the new little ones. I hope they know that whenever they cuddle up with their blankets, that’s me giving them a hug.
