Are they twins??

This is a question I get just about everyday when I'm out. Seriously, they are! "But one's bigger than the other". I always respond, "They are not identical, they're fraternal." Soooo, lately I've started dressing them the same, or at least in coordinating outfits. #1 because it's easier and #2 so that people may not state the obvious all the time. Also, for some reason because Jack is smaller, people often assume he is a girl. He looks nothing like a girl, but a lot of people assume the boy/girl twin thing. Anyway, here are some pictures from the other day. The boys were being silly and they were dressed the same...so I thought I'd share.

If it makes you feel better, my friend with B/G twins *always* gets asked if they are identical.

And...the stupid questions never end. My all time favorite was in high school when Kiki and I were asked if we were "telepathetic."

My kids are 21 months apart, a boy and a girl, and I get asked on almost a DAILY basis "Are they twins?" Oh the irony...people question the REAL twins, but assume the nearly 2 year apart kids are twins!

I would say, "no, they are just 9 months apart!" and see what sort of reaction you receive. :)

My big pet peeve is that my sweet, sweet baby boy, dressed head to toe in blue still sometimes gets called a girl!!!

It's funny that you wrote this because my son's still get that question! One is 10 and the other is 13. But to this day people always ask if they are twins! LOL

They are cute- twins or not!!! Will, Julia and Noah got asked if they were triplets- and I was like- um no, and if they were I sure as heck would not be 8 months pregnant!!!
I love the pictures, and cannot imagine the comments you surely get!
