i NEVER saw it

As a mom we know our kids like nobodies business.
We know the little personality coming out of a certain smile.
The meaning behind a cry or a laugh.

And we know their looks better than any other.
When my girls came along.....they were like night and day to me.

One blond hair and blue eyes, the other dark hair and the darkest of brown eyes.

Do you see what I mean...night and day!

They are both 2 months old here.
Kristen then Samantha.

Somewhere along the way people started commenting at how similar they were.
Even suggested they might be twins.
Are you mental?????
Do they LOOK like twins....do they even LOOK the same size????
They are 2 1/2 yrs. apart.
I always thought it was funny.  I'm mean seriously, just look at these two.
And personality....oh my.....not even the same.

This last week I pulled out my back up hard drive.
Wanted some certain pictures.
Started looking through months and months of photos from 2007.
The first year I owned a digi camera!
And I saw this.......

Oh.my.goodness.......Everybody else has seen it.
I never did.
But in these photos....they are the same.
I never understood what other people saw.
But I can see here....what strangers see.
What people who don't know them, see.
 I'm a little bit blown away by this.

Happy Monday everyone.
I hope you see something new today ;)

btw....I got my kit ;)
enjoying some scrap time to be sure!
Will share some layouts tomorrow.

My two eldest sons are identical twins. Everyone tells me they look so alike and I don't think they do. To me they are very different but when I look back at pictures when they were little I even hesitate who is who. I know how you feel.

Can't wait to see what you do with the kit.

WOW! Is that really 2 different girls wearing the same outfits..? THEY LOOK IDENTICAL...I know what you mean. Because we see them every moment of every day we dont notice the changes. I have had a lot of people tell me lately that my youngest, who is a carbon copy of her dad, is starting to look like me. Hmmm..I'm sceptical too..maybe i need to look closer! Take care...cant wait for my kit!

gosh...they really are alike Carol :) Sometimes as Mums, we do just see them in a certain way until someone highlight something different. All three of mine are so very different...but which ever way you look at it...pretty darn gorgeous ..most of the time :)

oh my goodness, Carol they really do look like TWINS in those last shots. At first I thought they were both photos of your eldest and then I kept scrolling up and down and realised that NO, the second pic is Samantha!!! That is amazing lol :)

My kit arrived today and I got straight into it and finished a page today.
