Twins

This picture says it all. No words needed. The relationship my sons have with each other is pretty much summed up right there.

You always hear people talk about twins having a special connection, and I thought that was only supposed to be identical twins. But I'm here to tell you that my fraternal-twin sons are eerily close, constantly tuned in to one another, and attached at the hip.
If I put one down for a nap first, I get to hear the ultra-concerned "Where's my Yosie?" or "Where's my Binny?" over and over. If one of them gets in trouble, the other's patting him on the back assuring him it's okay. They hold hands, hug, and if some sort of a spat occurs involving Anna, the boys totally stick together.


Sometimes I feel sorry for them because, being twins, they're always associated with each other and don't get lots of individual, one-on-one attention...but then when I TRY to give them that, they whine because they want the other one!

Anyway, here's to having twins!

Too cute! It's funny, I never really saw much of a resemblance to each other until these pictures. Now I see that they do have a lot of facial similarities. They're both adorable.

Yay for twins! I'm so glad they've had eachother through life's many transitions, just like my girls. I think that makes them even closer.
