Week 12 was an exciting one all around! Mr. Fix-It and I flew to Providence to celebrate my 30th birthday with loved ones. My parents threw a wonderful party and the weather was just perfect!
It was fun to share our baby news with friends and family - especially my sister! I had a small baby toy wrapped that I was going to ask her to keep until the baby's arrival. When she opened it she initially looked annoyed, like, "Why are you giving me some dumb baby toy?" Then I asked her who she thought it was for. She seemed confused ("Why would you hand me a gift that's not for me?" was the look on her face) and then I told her it was for my baby. She was all smiles and excitement! She's a funny one too, sometimes you just get a lukewarm reaction, but she was definitley thrilled. She quickly exclaimed that she "was going to be an Auntie!" and then asked if we'd heard the heartbeat. So sweet.
The party was fantastic. It was great to see so many loved ones and have them share in our baby joy. Even though my Mom made it clear that it was a "no presents" event, baby still made out with some adorable gender-neutral outfits, toys, books, and stuffed animals! This kid is awfully smart, it already figured out how to swindle presents.
