- *I started with this foreboding feeling of "I think that I might be having twins" - telling that to varies people (my nail lady, a few close friends, etc. )
- To crying when the ultrasound tech confirmed it was twins.
- *To praying constantly that they would be safe and healthy in utero and delivery.
- To being anxious to meet my little identical boys.
- To being in LOVE at first sight with my two little puffs.
Anyways, I don't think Gavin and Grant look identical that much any more and their personalities are so different. They both can tell you their name and who is who. *So no future scarring.* Plus- I am there and can tell them apart by their: cries- voice- run- back of the head- and face. Now, IF I am NOT going to be there, I do dress them coordinating because NO- I don't want them called by the wrong name either.
That being said, I do have coordinating outfits for my boys - plenty, but guess what!!! When one shirt is blue and one is green THEY WILL ALWAYS PICK THE SAME SHIRT. Both want the green one. I might as well have gotten 2 greens in the first place.
* Here are my 2 chefs planning dinner at their kitchen!*
Here is the OWNER of the joint - Mr. Gabe - who will actually order the 2 little chefs around the kitchen. Helping them, laughing with them and getting them all of MY kitchen tools he can find!

All in all, I have to say that I love dressing my twins matchy. I know my time to dress them is limited and I plan to LIVE IT UP! It is double-y cute, my money, and I get 80 % from my friend Kathy off of craigslist and her best friend who has identical twin boys. (Thank you God for Kathy and Debbie- and their boys' cute clothes). The other 10% is from the Gymboree Outlet, and the final 10% from my mother-in-law Sandy. Plus, I totally feel that is my right as their mom, and because I carried twins!!!! Holy smokes-- anyone remember those WHALE days? I was asked when I was due starting around 5 months. By the end I was SCARY gigantic!!!!!!
So please, all you "concerned" people out there, RELAX. It is just clothes. I will not be dressing them matchy forever. I will let them pick out their own clothes too. For now, I just love dressing up my handsome boys and showing them off. I am a PROUD parent who loves her boys and am so proud of them. They are the delight of my heart. Gabriel, Gavin and Grant I love you- always have, always will.
