    Funny you should bring that up. I used to hang out with triplet girls and their dad built a bathroom with a 30' long vanity with 4 washbasins. It looked like a theater dressing rather than a residential bathroom. I just hope my daughters will be on the same schedule.

    I say anthing but girl - girl. Having a little sister only two years younger than myself, there's no way I can in conscience wish a double dose of what I experienced upon your son.

    Congrats on being pregnant again. OMG, twins! You are going to have your hands full no matter the sexes. I am saying boy-boy just because you will already have boy things from Jack.

    Hmmm, any update? I know you're on EST, so hopefully we'll find out soon.
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    A is a Girl and B is a Boy!

    The lab results weren't in until Friday, and we didn't get back from NYC until 7pm with rush hour. Sorry to keep you hanging.

    And thank you everyone for the well wishes.

    Great news! And the majority of Cyburbia's voters correctly predicted this one! Now do we get to vote on baby names?

    1. What she said.
    2. among the majority.
    3. IMHO go with tradition - family names.

    What did I miss? This is odd.. Why did most people vote for a mixed pair? I'd think that twins are more easily the same sex rather than mixed...

    BTW Congrats Downtown!

    They are just as likely to be mixed as same sex, since they are fraternal twins (two separate eggs).

    And last time I offered to let the Throbbing Brain help me with baby names, the results, while hilarious, were not practical. So this is what we have:

    Madeline Elizabeth (baby's Great Grandma and aunt)
    and
    Stephen Michael (Great Grandfather and grandfather)
    or
    Thomas Patrick (Like Thomas, and Uncle)

    And I do understand that baby names are very subjective to taste, so I'm not looking for opinions on the names. Unless you happen to like them.

    You sure that you don't want to go with Jessie and James?
    Your kids will love you for it when they're older.

    Though I really like Biscuit's suggestion of Jessie & James, these names sound great. I'm a big fan of using family names. Just don't do anything stupid with the spelling please, i.e. Ashlieeei. (sorry people with strange versions of the name "Ashley")

    YAY! This is such wonderful news! I love the names, they are classic.

    We already have a Jesse - our dog.

    Although I'm now pondering the merits of Hazel - it was good enough for Julia Roberts!

    As for crazy spellings - I'll admit to LOATHING "Juleigha" and "Chrystheena" and don't even get me started on names with apostrophes.
