Boys will be boys...

"What are little boys made of?
What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails,
That's what little boys are made of."

Well Nish and I are about to find out just exactly what little boys are made of... what two little boys in particular are made of. The big day for the doctor's appointment arrived yesterday.

Turns out that our fears that the babies wouldn't cooperate enough for us to learn their genders couldn't have been more unfounded. They couldn't have made their father more proud, by showing off their man-hoods :) The sonographist had hardly begun the sonogram when she said "Well I can go ahead and tell you what Baby A is." But she didn't have to, it was proudly displayed for all in the room to see :)

The sonogram took about two hours, but the doctor came in afterwards and proudly exclaimed that "these were the best babies she had ever seen." Apparently twins rarely cooperate so well as to allow the doctor to see exactly everything they want to see on the first sonogram. Everything is developing perfectly as far as they can tell. Baby Boy A is 11 ounces, and Baby Boy B is 9 ounces... and right on track.

Let's just hope their performance yesterday is a sign for future good behavior... with just a little room for "Frogs and snails And puppy-dogs' tails."

  1. YAY! Congratulations to you both (well, all four of you). Most cooperative babies ever, huh? That must come from your side of the family ;)
