Having boy/girl twins, especially as your first children, is generally viewed as wonderful, lucky thing. So many people tell me that they always wanted to boy/girl twins, then they'd be done! Old ladies tell me how perfect it is to have one of each. Experienced moms tell me how lucky I am not to have two boys, or two girls - their thinking being that boys fight too much and girls are catty? I'm not sure but I get the comment a lot.
Anyway, I do love having one of each. But in our case, it goes a step beyong just gender. We have one Soto and one Georgoulis, too. Collette had her fathers face from day 1, there is no doubt about that. But she is also a little salvadorena in the making. I could give her a spread of all her favorite finger foods and the one she will grab first are the little red beans, a salvadoran staple. She also likes cheese, which isn't in itself salvadoran but beans with cheese certainly is a "plato tipico," especially for breakfast. And Billy is counting down the days until we can give her some ceviche.
