The Difference

Having identical twins means that the boys are, well, identical.  But it's easy to begin to see the difference in them and I don't just mean looks.

Brendon is our small guy.  He's still a pound lighter and 2 inches shorter.  This is actually to his benefit, though, as he is a strong little booger.  While Dana was having his finger checked out, Brendon stood against Bryce's car seat and the two laughed at each other.  He's not only strong for his size, he is our serious boy.  Sober Sides is often said around him.  He's not always forthcoming with the smiles, but when he decides to smile and chat you up, be prepared, he's in it for the long run.  He thinks sleeping is overrated, but to his dismay it always catches up to him. (He managed to stay in the position below about 25 seconds or so before starting to fall over. Being a lightweight has its benefits.)

Bryce is our chunk.  He's not that much heavier, but he wears it well.  He looks like a roly-poly chubby baby and he enjoys it that way.  He's not concerned with standing much, but is enjoying trying to sit unassisted.  His smiles come easy and often.  He loves to laugh and enjoys his naps.  He is easy-going most of the time, but once he's ticked off, watch out.

It has been fun getting to know these guys the last 4 months.  Raising them is definitely going to be an adventure.  One that we are so thankful to be on.  I'm so glad to have all of you to share it with!

When did babies start standing at 4 months? Have I missed a baby upgrade model? Are your boys Super Babies? Well of course they are super babies, but do they also have Super Powers?!

Identical needs to be replaced with another word when it comes to identical twins. My nephews are quite different and completely unique, as I am sure your boys and all other multiples.
