Who’s Who?

by Janice


Our “twin cousins,” (as Jackson calls them,) couldn’t be more different. Everything from the shapes of their faces, to the amount of hair they have, to their sleeping and nursing habits, to their size, is opposite to one another.

Since Susan and I are identical twins, our children are genetically half-siblings. But they don’t look like they are from the same family at all!

I love this picture because it so clearly shows the difference in the shapes of their faces.

Do you know which baby is Sophia and which baby is Olivia?

Olivia gets more pictures and I’m remembering off the top of my head that she doesn’t have much hair. So I’m saying she’s on the right, Sophia on the left!

Well they’re both adorable. That’s all that matters, right? ;)

So different, but both so sweet! I’m sure they’re going to be great friends as they grow up!

Oh they are both so cute!
As the mum of identical twins (who are VERY identical looking – but they are only four) I often wonder if they will marry similar looking men and how alike their children might be (if they marry and have children that is)…. but after having my baby boy who is just nothing like his sisters I thjink our genes have a LOT of room for variety!

You know, as an outsider, I see so many resemblences.

Their eyes, the shape of their foreheads, their noses, their ears.


13 Rosie February 29, 2008 at 8:33 am

Oh they are both absolutely gorgeous and both suit either names. I didn’t realise your children would be genetically half siblings. Fasinating!

They are both adorable, and that is a great picture.


15 Angela February 29, 2008 at 10:39 am

They are both darling. Actually, I do see a similarity in the eyes.


16 Proverbs31 February 29, 2008 at 12:33 pm

I’m thinking she’s on the right. :)

They’re both so cute and darling! They do look different, but they do also look related. Different but similar features. I never thought about them being genetically half-sisters. That’s cool!

Sophia is on the left and Olivia is on the right. I am amazed at how much Sophia is really beginning to look like Julia!!!!


18 Brenda Prentice (Time and Season) February 29, 2008 at 1:48 pm

Sophia on the left and Olivia on the right. :~)


19 Storm February 29, 2008 at 2:58 pm

BEAUTIFUL! Olivia is on the right and Sophia is on the left. Thanks for sharing your life with us.


20 Sarah Ellis February 29, 2008 at 3:15 pm

They are so adorable! They do have the same ears though. :-)


21 Janice February 29, 2008 at 4:29 pm

You all are so sweet! AND smart :) Yes, Olivia is on the right and Sophia on the left. I know I am biased – but I agree that they both are so cute! I could eat them up! :)


22 Reluctant Housewife February 29, 2008 at 7:57 pm

Um… Julia on the right?
What adorable little faces!


23 Tiff February 29, 2008 at 9:57 pm

I actually do see the simularities. They aren’t twins or anything, but they obviously look like they are from the same family to me.


26 Cayce March 2, 2008 at 10:50 pm

Sooo cute! This is my first time seeing them and visiting your blog. Both are edible!


27 Cayce March 2, 2008 at 10:51 pm

They are both so sweet! Olivia is on the right – I recognize her from all of the WW photos. They are just adorable – and growing so fast! :)
