Anyones identicals not quite identical? lets share pics id & frat :)

My guys are id but one developed a condition similar to hydrocephalus, but benign, that caused fluid to build up around the brain instead of draining and caused his head to grow larger than his brother. Because of a larger forehead and skull it caused his eyes and features to look a bit different, so no one thinks they are identical...I always end up trying to explain and I think as they get older they'll look more and more alike.

It's sort of bittersweet, I loved that they are id and looked forward to them being identical but now I have no clue if they will look alike later in life or not...

also, speaking of mirror image twinning, mine were born with opposite undescended testes, ones right handed one left, and some other strange opposites have come up also that i can' think of at the moment...

Here are some pics







anyone else want to share some pics?

Too cute! I hope to see some more. I should start a "most fraternal" thread.

Mine are very much fraternal (boy/girl), but they look a lot alike!

My boys are fraternal. I don't have any pics with both of them in the same pic. But here is what I have:

Riley:


Jonathan:


I did find this pic. of the two together in a pic. Riley on the left and Jon on the right as you see them:


Jon is heavier by 2lbs but Riley's head looks bigger as he has plagiocephaly: flattening of the head. It causes his head to be misshaped and looks bigger. He will be getting a helmet to help that.

Here are my identicals They are 8 months old. They look very different to me sometimes, but I don't know if that's just because I'm their mom. The one on the right is about a pound bigger than his brother, so I suppose that's a contributing factor.

Awww, love seeing pics of other sets of twins. ...everyone's so sweet! Our LOs are fraternal (obviously ). Some people think they look a lot alike & some think they look different. Some people ask if they are identical.
