Doublettes!

So...... remember how I posted that our ultra sound wouldn't be until the 17th? Well apparently there was a misunderstanding-- our apt. was actually set for TODAY! (I am so glad that I called to confirm when I did because otherwise we would have missed it!) Anyway, yet again the two peanuts were being somewhat uncooperative in giving us a good shot of the goods... until towards the end of the ultra sound, the nurse got the most perfect shot of the two sitting side by side, rump down-- and there was "nothing" there! Yep, we are having girls and we are so excited! We are already enjoying the never-ending supply of hand-me-downs coming our way. We are truly blessed... now to come up with not one, but two cute names....any ideas?

Thank YOU for hanging out with US yesterday! So fun.

Hooray for girls! We have boxes and boxes of clothes for you to add to the explosion in the guest room. Love ya!

"Clara" is reserved. I wanted it but Jana threatened me with my life if I used it... although she likes you better so you might survive the usage of that name.

I can't wait to see what you guys come up with....and can I please get some estrogen sent my way?

Patterson said...

That is so exciting! I have only known of boys that are going to be born and now I know of 2! LOL! You guys are going to be great parents!

Yay for Girls! Do you know if they are identical yet? As for names here are some that I like: My friend who had twin girls named them "Eva" and "Elsa" I thought those were cute. Also, in high school I had a friend and she and her sister (not twins)were named "Aylie" and "Caitrin" I really liked those names. I do have to say that I am fond of my maiden name, "Lily" but there is already a Lily in the fam. So I can't use it. Well, there you go. Oh, and I DO expect you to use them or we are no longer friends. =)

Congrats on the girls! I would love to share some names but I only have two that I really want and if you take them both I won't have one (hoping we have at least one girl one day-I do love my boys though!) Whatever you do just don't name them too close- sometimes I still call Jameson Preston and have even called him Simon (the cat-even though we don't have the cat anymore) The other day at the doctors this lady had twins, a boy and girl and their names were Daniel and Daniella-talk about setting herself up for confusion!

Whitney said...

Congrats! I don't know how I would react if I were having twins. What a crazy surprise.

I would go to this website for names: http://www.wesclark.com/ubn/

Please enjoy this site as much as I have. And remember, it's always awesome to give your kids ridiculous made up names.

Here are a few examples:

Alpha Mae
Napina
Delightra
Tempalia

Congrats! Girls are so fun, they can totally play dress up and barbies together. I love cute/classic names for girls, Abby, Paige, and Pari are some of my favorites.

RussandHeidi said...

Hey!

Congrats on the great news!!! That's so exciting that you're having twins.

Here's a few names that have proven to be successful throughout the years....
>Russella
>Russellina
>Russia (often mistaken for the country with a similiar name)

and my personal favorite
>Erussabeth

Chrissie Brown said...

Oh, the girls. Can't wait to meet them in person. So, I know you were thinking of Avery Jane for a girl....why not break it up and have one Avery and one Jane? So cute! I'm sure you'll get my stamp of approval on whatever you decide.

Darla said...

2 girls!! I REALLY believe HF is sending more girls than boys nowadays. As for names, I'm totally stumped on that. I'm no good with girl names. I do like Edith, however.

One Girl and Three Crazy Boys! said...

I liked the Avery and Jane idea. That is pretty cute.

Emily said...

Wow, I can't believe you forgot. We totally already had this conversation, and you promised that if you had two girls you could name them Shaneynay and Lafawnduh. Don't you remember?

I guess I'll settle for Emily and Jonnina, if you'd like.

Cori said...

Maci, about the comment on my blog: I talked to Craig. He said they totally do internships, but he said he could get much more information if he knew exactly what you were looking for. When, what, how long, etc. You can email me at corilynn6@gmail.com
or give me a call if you have my number. I know he'd love to do whatever he can.

Bowers Fam said...

Yay for you guys! I am SO excited! How ironic that at crystal's bridal shower we were talking babies, huh!? Wow, two! That is so awesome!!

Bryan and KathrynScott said...

wow, twins how exciting. Girls are so fun, especially if you like big bows like me. I love the names Vanessa and Savanna for twins because they are alike but not too much!

Kelli said...

Brie and Kelli. It served me well :) CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!

JEM said...

Have to add in our made up names: Yarmei Junither and Floomberry Grimp. Credit goes to Jer for those. We were going to use them but went with Millie instead. I don't remember why...
