All,

We wanted to share the good news that we are expecting triplets (totally spontaneous)! Two are definitely boys, and the third is probably a boy, although they are not yet completely certain. They will arrive in late September/early October, but will likely have to be in the NICU for a couple of weeks afterwards.

We had an appointment with the maternofetal medicine specialists yesterday, and the doctors were very pleased by their progress so far and say that everything looks good. Please keep us in your prayers.

    Baby Names

    The Challenge: This is one of the most difficult things to decide on. Now that we know it is 3 boys, we have to scrap all the nice names we had for girls. A friend made the following suggestions:

    ——————
    OK, I suggest you do this:
    Pick names that are somehow related to each other. For example:
    a. The Three Musketeers: Athos, Porthos, and Aramis
    b. Apollo 13: James, John, and Fred
    c. If the third kid happens to be a girl you may want to try the “Golden Trio” from Harry Potter – Harry, Ron, and Hermione. (Then your kids sue you later on because of this)
    , and Ian
    ——————

    (2) Pick names that sound alike and that combines well with your last name, with some ethnic touch:
    a. Indian names: Mitali, Mitul, and Mohin
    b. American: Ryan, Bryan

    The Proposal: Names we have come up with so far:
    Aiden: means “little fire”
    Ethan: means “strong, firm, impetuous”
    Gabriel: means “God is my might”
    Saige: means “wise”
