Twins???




Jordyn and Avery recently had their 3rd and 2nd birthdays. It's been amazing to see these little girls grow up so close together (12 months, 2 weeks exactly!) and develop a bond with one another. They definitely have their "enemy" moments, but for the most part, they are great friends and play well together almost every day. Because they are so close in size and age, I get asked if they are twins about 3-4 times a week (pretty much whenever I go out with both of them). I don't think they look alike, but I guess strangers see something I don't. I guess it also doesn't help when I coordinate their clothes, but it's just too much fun! The girls pretty much wear the same size of clothes and shoes and like most of the same things (which doesn't help the sharing factor).
They both had their well-baby checkups today (a lady in the waiting room asked if they were twins) and the appointment just reaffirmed how close they are. Jordyn weighs 25 3/4 lbs., and Avery weighs 25 1/2 lbs. Jordyn is 36 1/2 inches, and Avery is 34 1/2 inches. I guess they really could pass for twins, and sometimes I really just want to answer yes when people ask me. Although these little girls keep me on my toes and sometimes give me headaches with the constant noise, I'm thankful they came to me when they did and have the unique personalities they do. I love them like crazy!

Wow, time flies by! I can't believe they are that old already. They are darling little girls and how lucky they will be to grow up together and be so close. I'm nervous about my babies being 19 months apart. I can't even imagine 12 months. I guess you have come to realize that the older they get, the easier it gets. (car seats, middle of the night feedings, carrying them around everywhere) Atleast that's what we thought with the triplets. The girls were excited to see Ashtyn at her school the other day where they performed for their TaVaci concert. I couldn't believe how old Ashtyn has gotten. She's a cutie!

They are so cute! I would have loved to have a sister so close in age to me- oh wait... I guess I would have just liked a sister at all!

They are so cute!! We really do need to get Blake and Jordyn together - they look alike and they are the same size!!
It was so fun to see you!! Let's plan that trip in June so we can stay up all night talking (or at least until midnight):)

Happy Birthday to the two little cuties! How fun (and a lot of work) to have them so close in age!

I can't believe that they are that close in size. That is crazy. I hope that they had good birthdays. They are getting so big and they are so cute.

I can't believe they are getting so big. I think Avery looks like Ashtyn.Cassidy and I can't wait to see you and your fam. I hope we don't freeze.

They could pull it off just because I've seen so many twins only having a resemblence of siblings. That's what I think your girls have, just that resemblence. Ashlee (my sis)and I got that all the time as kids. She was as tall as me & we practically shared clothes all growing up.
