More like Twins

Riley being sweet

Addison all upset

Addison being sweet

For the last few days the girls have been looking more alike than they have since they were born. Jesse commented about this about a week ago, then my father held Addison for 20 minutes and the whole time he thought he was holding Riley. We can easily tell the girls apart when we look at their hair. Addison has considerably darker hair but their faces are starting to look alike. Riley used to have a more narrow face but she is filling out and getting a rounder face liker her sister. The have some of the same expressions now which also makes them look more alike. I've even started thinking that they look more alike and I have always thought they looked very different. I wonder how close the girls will look as they get older. I see that Riley's hair is getting a little darker so they may have less differences than we originally thought.

Sara had another fun day dressing up the girls. They had cute little corduroy dresses with tights, bloomers, head bands, and little slippers when I came home from work. I just loved how cute they looked but Addison didn't want to pose for her pictures. She was really hungry and didn't want to be held up for any photo sessions.

The girls were good throughout the evening allowing me to get the dishes, laundry, and house work done. They even gave me extra time to do some homework. I'm sure I won't be so lucky to have extra time for homework like this very often. I just have to take it one day at a time and get as much done each time I get on the computer.

The girls went their first 6 hour stretch between feedings today. The only bad part was the stretch was from 4 am to 10 am. It would be better if they could go from 10pm to 4am, eat, and then go back down for another 3 or 4 hours. We would all get more sleep around here if that was the case. I guess we will keep working on the sleep routine and hope for the best.


  1. The girls did the same (thought at birth they looked at least noticeably different and now, not at all)

    True would be nicer for the 6 hour stretch to start earlier but it's a start!

  2. It's funny that you say they are looking alike because I was going to comment on that yesterday but didn't because I thought it had to just be the picture you posted. They've always looked so so different and the camera can be deceiving-especially for little Addison who is just like her Mama-beautiful except in pictures LOL! I miss them! It's been 3 weeks-I need my twin girly fix :-)
