Twin-ness

As you all know one of the things I find hardest about Ashlea's disabilities is the loss of her twinship with Audrey. Well, I guess it isn't lost altogether, but it is definitely different to what 'might have been'.

At the moment I think my twins look the most alike they ever have.  I have been trying to get a picture of the two of them together so I can savour it. After the transplant Ashlea's looks will change again as the steroids will make her face look puffy. I hate that it is just one more thing that will effect their twin-ship. They already look so different from each other (for identical twins).

I am savouring these months before the surgery while they look a little more alike.  What do you think?  Would you pick them for identical twins??



Just don't pay attention to the height difference...

Alison they are both so very beautiful and looked so summery and sun kissed xx I often think that having CP changes the way our kids were "suppose to look" as in the muscles even in the face are different and their faces become more roundish than structured as such. I think your girls look very similar these days and cannot believe they are school bound next year!

I can certainly see it, I was only thinking the other day, one of the photos you posted (think when they were in the pool) that Ashlea and Audrey do look alike more than I have thought so before.

As you know the whole twin thing is also my thing that I hate the most..but I imagine even more so for you when you have the exact image in front of you "without" CP.

As others have said, GORGEOUS girls, love them to bits xxx

I am always looking for twin-ness in my supposedly identical girls who have only just started to looks alike! I couldn't agree with the others more, they are identical twins for sure... just like mine, same eyes, same nose, same facial structure... just different in so many other ways!

Honestly-I think for identical twins they are very interesting. Personally, I think Audrey is totally Murray and Ashlea is totally you, which is odd for twinnies!

You know, I am a bad person to ask. But really, I've always thought they look identical! They definitely do in that picture. Certainly you can see how much more they look like each other than your other! Mine, on the other hand, are looking more and more different as the gap in "age" widens. They looked most alike right after the accident and from there it's only spots here and there where I can see them in one another. But I do notice their identical nose - so different from their brothers. Either way, your girls are gorgeous, and will always look identical to me!

That's funny Jenny - because I was thinking how much your girls still look alike when I saw their birthday pictures!!

Michelle said...
