Is it just me?

If you've heard me talk about my kids you know I'm not one to brag about their accomplishments. It's not that I have any restraint, it's just that they generally meet their milestones a little later than other babies we know, and they aren't particularly athletic/ musical/ social/ artistic/ for their age, so I have nothing to brag about. Except - I have to admit that I think they are exceptionally cute. Maybe not the cutest children in the world(I am trying to step out of Mommy mode here) but definitely well above average. Daddy says this is just what all parents think about their own, and I know what he means, of course they are the most beautiful things I have ever seen, but I still think they are objectively cute beyond normal. I've had more than one conversation with a mom who seems to honestly, sincerely think that her average looking child is particularly adorable, so I have to concede that I too may have fallen viction to this "mommy blindness".
But come on. Look at them.

PS And, is there anyone who still thinks they are identical? They are looking very different these days - the best way I can describe it is that Vanh looks older and pointier. (The vote stopped working, but it was at 78% for identical)

I think they looked very different in the denim diaper photo. I'm sure you follow Henry and Ben from the states? I think they are identical as proven by dna or something? And they look Sooooo different.

It is NOT just you - those two are ADORABLE!! Their little faces are just precious!

To me,my twins look VERY different, one has a rounder face one has a leaner face, but I met a mom who birthed her twins but sent away for DNA because for some reason, they never "knew" if theirs were identical or not. The result: Her girls WERE identical, even though one was taller and heavier and had a dimple on her cheek...which is how my boys are.

Maybe one day we'll spring for the DNA test. ;-)
