The same but yet so different.

I never had the twins tested to see if they were identical the first ultra sound lady said they were then the other two said they could be or could not be because they are in separate sacs but I only had one placenta so that means it can be either. I know really confusing but I have decided that when people ask me I am going to say they are identical, mainly because I am tired of giving the whole spill that pretty much I have just bored you all with. Any ways if they are identical which means they come from the same egg and it splits means that they also have the same DNA. Which is crazy because they are the same but yet they are so different. I have posted a video of them below that will show just how really different they are personality wise, however keep in mind that kenzi on the left is teething so she is not as smiley as normal.

Here are some differences that I have seen

Kenzi was the bigger one when she was born when I say bigger she was still a small baby weighing five pounds. But Kenzi seems to be the leader of the two and take on the big sister role. She has done everything before Rylee from rolling over, to sitting up, to now crawling, and saying mama dada babab etc. Rylee on the other hand watches her sister and usually anywhere from a couple weeks to a month will start to do the same things. However we were really excited because Rylee finally got to be first at something and that was getting her first tooth. and about 3 weeks later (now) Kenzi has been getting her first tooth. Kenzi really has had a hard time with it she has had a cold, fever, now the runs really bad, sorry if that is a little tmi for some of you! Rylee had no problems with teething so far (knock on wood). Kenzi is much more calm and really usually a happy baby she also can be a flirt. Rylee on the other hand I like to refer to her as my little fire cracker she is the clown, loves attention and has a lot of energy but also can have a little more attitude than her sister . Also eating wise Kenzi is a great eater she will eat just about anything that I give to her, Rylee on the other hand is very picky and stubborn about eating (much like her dad). She loves bananas but refuses to touch them for some reason, I am guessing the mushy texture but who knows. Over all I can say that I love having twins, it is so fun to watch them interact and see the difference in personalities.

I totally forgot that you were back to blogging! Your girls are SO cute, I still can't believe you have twins! That must be so much work but they are going to be best friends growing up and it must be so fun seeing them starting to play together. Sorry about the teething, they are NO fun. Kaden just got done breaking his 2nd molar.

We move to SC in a week! We're just making our way across the country :) Luckily we'll be living there for almost 2 years. If we ever come up to NC I would love to come see you and your girls!

I am kinda jealous that you have twins. It would be so fun to see Brooklyn interact with another baby regularly but I honesty might go insane if there were another baby around here. You are a strong person.

Sincerely, Lori
