Dear Warriors,

I want to share some good news with all of you. My wife gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl today (19-Aug-08).

It's really an out of world feeling since this is the first time that I am becoming a father. The actual due date was in 2nd week of September so the babies are pre term. But thank god, the kids and the mother are doing fine.

Regards,
Anup Mahajan

      Thank you..

      I'll post pics soon

      Well the babies are pre term so the weight is bit less
      Boy - 2.4 kgs (5 pounds)
      Girl - 1.9 Kgs (4 pounds)

      And naming ceremony would be held after few days .. (In India, it is not compulsory to name kids as soon as they are born.. It can be done at leisure)..

          A huge congratulations to you and your wife. Welcome to the world of parenting.

          I hate to say it but you do realise it's double expense now so you'll have to work twice as hard! :-)

          Enjoy it up there on cloud nine - it's the best feeling in the world.

          Best wishes

        That's still a pretty good weight for preterm twins - when my daughter was born she had jaundice so she was in a room full of one pound babies on incubaters for a few days. Your babies sound like they are nice and healthy! Have you been able to hold them yet? It's the best feeling in the world.

              Another congratulations here, Anup. When you have no sleep, two diapers to change instead of one, one baby crying waiting to be fed - remember you are blessed! After they are older you will know that (at least until they are teenagers, but that is a whole new universe to explore). It's great that you got a son along with the daughter so you will have help keeping her (and all the eager boys) in line when she gets older!
