New Ultrasound Pictures

We had another ultrasound this week and everything is looking good. They were both moving a lot and already looking pretty squished in there. Click on the pictures to enlarge. Merry Christmas!

We are having.....

TWINS! I guess we need to change the name of our little blog to reflect multiples. Any suggestions on blog names?

We had our first ultrasound today and much to our surprise and excitement.. we are having twins. They look to be identical (sharing a placenta). Both are healthy and we heard both strong heartbeats! Double the trouble, double the fun. In the last few weeks we have talked about how fun it would be to have twins, but never in our dreams did we think it would happen!

We are still letting it sink in, but here are some pictures of Babies A & B Shirzad due July 4th!
