I was looking for an old picture to underline an observation I am about to make when I found this.
I mean, honestly. HONESTLY.
And I know I put these up at the time but
they cracked me up all over again.
Anyway, of all of the things that strangers said to us when they twins were little; the one that always wafted Steve the breeziest was when a friendly stranger first asked, "Are they a boy and a girl?" and - upon being given an affirmative - followed up with: "Are they identical?"
I mean, did they look identical*?
But! [and this is where I was heading, albeit in a leisurely manner that lead me to spend the past hour looking at baby pictures and saying awwwwwwww and ohhhhh and also, on occasion, ick - I had forgotten how very... leaky they were]
I just realized that they are starting to look more alike. Similar hair color, similar noses, similar fascination with their birthday Kurios.
*Ha ha ha ha ha. Get it? We knew the boy and girl weren't identical because he had curly hair.
