In case you haven’t yet heard, our little Abby is going to be a big sister very soon! And a big sister to TWO siblings, nonetheless! Hannah and William are expected this coming April, and we couldn’t be more excited about their arrival. This will be the Taylor family’s second set of twins- if you can even believe it! And Brad and Julie are not the only ones preparing for the arrival of their new babes, but Abby herself has also been hard at work. We thought we’d give you a sneak peek into this big sister’s recent preparations.
Firstly, there was her bed, of course. Big sisters can hardly be expected to sleep in cribs after all- what kind of example would that be? An upgrade to a more sensibly-sized mattress was necessary. Mom helped with the makeover by dressing the bed in our new, hand-pieced Emma quilt – so cute!
There was also the very pressing matter of learning how to balance two babies at once -- an exercise that Abby has been frequently found practicing around the home.
Knowing that mom will need some extra help around the house once her brother and sister arrive, Abby has been sharpening her culinary techniques. She has the mixing thing down, but aprons, well – they can be tricky. Keep an eye out for our new children’s aprons arriving this summer!
And last, but most important – Abby has been most proactive in seeking counsel from her peers. Cousin Evan had some great tips on being an older sibling and Rylee and Kate have the twin stuff down pat these days.
Needless to say, getting ready for twins is exhausting work!
