Cute pic btw.
I watched a show once on twins and they watched them go to dinner seperately. They both tended to talk about the same things at the same points in the conversation.
I alway found the twin relationship interesting. Twins celebrate it, but at the same time, they seem to resent having to share their identity with another person.

Oh cool, what a neat post!
My wife and I just had ID twin girls 5 months ago. We are sooooo blessed to have them. It was great reading your posts. I hope our twins have similar fun experiences. Any advise you could give to the parents of twins? Anything you wish your parents had done differently? We dress them alike sometimes but not always. We figure that when they are old enough to pick out their own clothes then it will be up to them if they wanna dress alike or not. I'm also a frequent poster over on pregnancy.org where there are a lot of twin moms and dads that share stories and the like, you might head over there. =)

I was at a dollar store a couple of years ago and heard some bizarre buzzing type of language in another isle. My curiosity to eaves drop, I went down the isle and it was twin girls ( or clones?) and they freaked me out as if there was something alien about them just being in their zone. They seemed to get upset and angry and it was like they were ferrell kittens or similar..Yikes! I wonder if they also have higher IQs, but higher when they're together? Maybe that's obvious? idk
My first wife was a surviving twin and told me she was always depressed as if picking up on her ghost twins emotions. Or survivors guilt? idk
Makes me wonder if we ever did clone people, they would have psychic abilites. Since mothers also seem to have a psychic connections with the children sometimes, I wonder how much stronger that is, if at all, with twins.
Yeah, there's something spooky about twins most can't get used to. The notion of alien visitors using cloned human bodies, as if twins, makes me wonder if they are really human when I see them.
The stories of identical twins' nearly identical lives are often astonishing, but perhaps none more so than those of these identical twins born in Ohio. The twin boys were separated at birth, being adopted by different families. Unknown to each other, both families named the boys Jim. And here the coincidences just begun. Both James grew up not even knowing of the other, yet both sought law-enforcement training, both had abilities in mechanical drawing and carpentry, and each had married women named Linda. They both had sons whom one named James Alan and the other named James Allan. The twin brothers also divorced their wives and married other women - both named Betty. And they both owned dogs which they named Toy. Jim Lewis and Jim Springer finally met in February 9, 1979 after 39 years of being separated.

I would think it to be most rare for twins to be exact. Subtle differences seems likely. A recent court case a couple of years ago involving twins, had the exact DNA and fingerprints. Just curious if you other twins ever compared finger prints also.
The other thing is twins with different personalities. The Olsen twins are said to be different. But I guess that's also a learned behavior for others as well, especially when being actors. Maybe people just expect them to be clones. Parents seem to want to dress them the same. But is that so they don't lose them in a crowd? idk
