the joy of love - how they look

Wednesday, 2 February 2011

My boys are identical twins. The odds of having identical twins? 3 in 1,000. The odds of having mono-mono twins like my boys? 1 in 1,000 and no DNA test is needed to prove they are identical.

To most people they may look identical, but to anybody who knows them well, they are not. They may look very similar, but they each have their own range of expressions and they are very different in personality.



Ethan is the flirt. He's going to be the ladies' man. He can be defiant and stubborn but he has a heart of gold. Owen has a serious exterior and then when you get to know him he is a clown. He likes to put on a show and he has the most beautiful smile I have ever seen.

Both boys look very much like their dad but I do see little glimmers of me in them from time to time.
