The boss now knows..............

Well I told my boss our news this week and that I would be finishing up towards end of November. He was surprised but very supportive. He was amazed at our situation and that we are having 3 babies...Wow I am actually saying that now "we are having three babies".

Our accommodation is confirmed and half paid for as I have extended our stay through to mid January as realistically bub number 3 as a singleton is not due until 20 December. So by the time we get the paperwork done for all of them (especially given public holiday closures of various offices) mid January is more likely.

As we have a 3 bedroom apartment in Greater Kailash 2 (I booked this through airbnb which was amazing) I will put on some Christmas pomp and ceremony on 25th Dec and have invited Ryan and Ruben (India Calling) and their soon to be born twins for a celebratory lunch.....will have to get some alcohol duty free on the way over there as it is absolutely imperative to have a nice drop of champagne for the day.

It will be so nice to have a different Christmas this year, sharing it with our babies and also with Ryan and Ruben.....cant wait!!!

My nieces and my sister are holding a Baby Shower for us on 7th October. That is so lovely and cant wait to play some silly games and spend time with friends.

My album for our babies that I have been compiling since we returned from India, continues to progress as it includes extracts from my blog, photos of India, our surrogates and egg donor as well as their scans and updates. One day when the babies are older I will be so tickled pink to be able to show them their story of how their lives began.

On a final note, I struggled to think of what I would put on the babies' nursery door. Here is a pic of what I ended up doing. I had fun with glitter paint!

Hope everyone is well. I am crossing fingers for a smooth 2-3 months until bubs are born.
