It's quiet here...for now...

If you came here looking for an exciting update, sorry you will have to keep checking!

The point of the noisy Diwali "crackers" is to scare away evil and after Wednesday nights nonstop explosions I am pretty sure it's all gone! So besides the standard honking and city noises Delhi is fairly quiet. And all is quiet on the baby front too - for now! So if you voted October 27th...you were wrong:)

We have been relaxing, shopping, working(well Lee has) and meeting up with new friends for lots of great food. Yesterday after some shopping in Hauz Khas Village (we will take pictures next time since it's quite beautiful) we met with Poonam, the woman who will help us navigate "operation get out of India". The process is pretty straightforward, two stamped birth certificates, two passports and two stamped exit visas. Not too bad, right? The challenge is how fast can we get all of these documents, so that Lee can return to work and our babies can meet the rest of their families and begin life at home. The US embassy is closed November 10th and 11th, so Poonam told us if the babies aren't here by the middle part of next week we would most likely be rescheduling our November 15th return tickets! Only time will tell when TO and TT decide to arrive...

Glad you guys are keeping busy while bubs are enjoying being snuggled away. i'm surprised the fireworks didn't get them moving! But I guess Delhi is noisy all year round!!!!

TO and TT will come out when they're ready, Mommy. Best for everyone to realize who the real bosses are going to be in the family. :-) Excited to have them here soon! xx Ayesha
