Life with identical twins

Real Twins

on August 13, 2014


Yesterday morning I was at the dentist chatting up my hygienist. I brought the girls along, which I don’t normally do, and she hadn’t met them before. She asked if they were identical or fraternal, and upon hearing they were identical, commented that they didn’t look alike at all. I told her they used to look more alike when they were younger, but now that they’re older and their hair is different, they look completely different. It was one of those conversations where you forget the kids are in the room and listening.

Fast forward to later in the morning and the girls have hatched a plan for the haircuts that we were getting later in the day. The previous plan was for both of them to get a trim, but suddenly they wanted the same haircut so they could look alike, like “real twins”.

I cracked up because when you’re pregnant with identical twins you worry about treating them differently and letting them be individuals, and the next thing you know they are purposely getting their hair cut the same so they can look exactly alike. And whoa do they look alike now! Especially from the side or behind. I cannot get used to Delaney’s short hair and legitimately called her Caden twice. The top photo is deceiving, because they’re only 1/4″ apart in height right now too. We shall see if they fool their camp counselors today!

    In looking at the bottom picture, I totally thought Delaney was Caden. They look adorable!

    I confess! I got them mixed up, too. Perfect haircut for both of them. What will we do with all the hair accessories?
