Telling my parents the news

I am so lucky to have such an amazing family, they truely are remarkable.

I had told my parents that I had a few work meetings in Perth this week. When we arrived at my parent's house, I handed mum her birthday present a few days early. Inside the box were a few gifts I brought back from India, when mum opened the card, she started reading out loud.

"Dear Grandma, 

Happy Birthday!

We are both looking forward to meeting you and Grandad.

Love the Tilby Twins

P.S Dad has attached a couple of pictures of us for you"

It wasn't until they read the last sentence that it clicked, my parents didn't even know that I had snuck off to India for a week in June.  They were really thrilled, very supportive, and will be coming across with me to India early next year.

I told my neices and nephews the following day and they were very excited, one of my nephews, thinks that the twins are growing in my belly....... so I now can start eating for three.

My neices loved the Sari's I bought back for them, they couldn't wait to hop into them and dress up. I will upload some pictures when I get back to Canberra.

Congratulations to Richard and Simon on their three little girls.... They are just stunning.
