The power of two

People talk about twins and most of us have probably heard about the unique bond that they share. I never really knew much about this until I became the mommom to twin Grandbabies.  They are like all children in that they are adorable, innocent and leave you awestruck! But there is of course something different and inexplicable. IMG_9214

The way they play and communicate through a simple gesture or one word is so much fun to watch and to decipher.  At this point they refer to each other as brother in nickname form. They fight like all siblings do and then all is forgotten within a short time.

The main thing that shouldn’t surprise me but always does is their personalities. They are total opposites and it is easy to tell them apart by their smile and facial expressions. Recently one of the boys smiled and looked just like his brother and I remarked “Wow you look so much like your brother” and I was shocked with the realization that they do indeed look just alike. To us they are so different in every way.IMG_9221

Becoming a parent was life changing for me and now being a Grama is double the fun!

 

 

 

 

Apple picking in the rain

The picture above is a typical look given by this little cutie. It is amazing to me how different these little guys are.

Our day of apple picking was rainy and basically was more of a get together for all of us. We ended up at Great grandparent’s (Mom and Dad’s) home! A wonderful family time.
