It's a....

September 24, 2007 is when Chetan and I found out we were having a boy and girl!
Even as Dr Teteris was starting the ultrasound, Chetan and I were going back and forth about whether we wanted to know the genders. Chetan gave me the ol' "it's life's only true surprise" argument while I gave him the "I don't want everything to be yellow and green" argument. Okay, so my argument was weak. When the Dr asked if we wanted to know the genders, we looked at each other and say YES at the same time. "Baby A is a...boy" Chetan smiled from ear to ear. So did I. I told the Dr that my guess was that Baby B was a boy too, since they were both boys in my dreams. "Baby B is a...girl." More goofy smiles from the both of us. I told Chetan, "Mom and Mama will be so happy." They both really wanted us to have one of each. I honestly didn't care what we had, because they are pros to both being one gender and pros to having one of each. My only wish is that they are each other's best friends and take care of each other.
Sept 24th 2007 was also the start of the name game....

8 Months Old!

My babies are growing up way too quick! 8 months already! They get more fun and more entertaining each day. Sahil is now an expert crawler, and it's so cute! He entertain himself by exploring the house. Chetan put up gates this weekend and now we have to tackle the cabinets next, fun fun. We don't have much that S&S can get into but Sahil has pointed things out to us that we didn't think of. :) Some things I plan to leave as is, and teach S&S not to touch (I know, good luck!). I'd rather not have my living room look like KinderCare.
Samira's still content sitting and observing the world around her. She does scoot around on her bottom and sort of get up on all fours. She is chatty as ever!
Both S&S love their solids and I've been adding different things to their diet, all of which they like or at least tolerate. Sahil did dry heave on some dhal the other day... he better get used to it soon because he'll be eating a lot of dhal and rice!
They are changing everyday and never cease to amaze me!

I miss Stacy!

Stacy is/was my acupuncturist. She is so wonderful! I started going to her for acupuncture when it was taking us longer than I wanted to get pg, a lot longer. A co-worker of Chetan has mentioned her name, and she miracles she worked, so I thought why not! One of Chetan's cousins also swore by acu so Chetan was sold too. We both went to the first session, where she just asked questions, got to know us and our issues, etc. Then a few weeks later I started going to her for actual sessions...and it was great! I do believe acu is what helped me get pg, and with twins! I kept going after getting pg and maybe that's why I had an easy twin pregnancy.
I also now wonder if acu has anything to do with S&S easy-going nature (totally jixning myself, I know). Who knows, but I do totally believe in acu and would recommend it anyone wanting to solve certain health issues naturally.
I really want to start up acu again, but Stacy moved! So so sad!! There are many other acupuncturists in Columbus, but I miss Stacy!! Not only did she do acu but she also listened to em go on about everything going in my life. It was very therapeutic.
I might have had a bit of a girl-crush on her too :)
