Twins?

The other day I took the girls to a check-up. I was a little surprised to find that the girls are only a pound apart in weight and an inch and a half different in height. Tori is weighing in at 24.5 lbs and is 33 1/4 in long and Ella is 23.5 lbs and 31 3/4 in. I don't ever get asked if they are twins but I think here in about a year or so when Ella grows more hair and develops a bigger vocabulary they may get mistaken as twins often because size wise they are so similar.
In these pictures Ella and Tori are wearing the exact same outfit (well except for the cardigan but the cardigan that Ella is wearing is actually worn by Tori most often). Ella and Tori now mostly wear the same size clothing and the skinny jeans they are wearing actually fit Ella slightly better because Ella's thighs are slightly chunkier. They also wear the same size shoe. I guess that is what happens when you have two little girls 13 months apart!

Way to get me all worked up!!

They are both such cute girls! They will definitely have a good time sharing clothes when they get older (or fight a lot over clothes - shoot, I guess it could go either way). Hopefully we can move out by you guys and Josie can inherit all sorts of super cute clothes...

They're so cute:) It'll definitely be interesting to see if people start asking you if they're twins. And I'm in love with those cardigans. Yum. Wish I had me some crew cuts cardies for my girls.

Oh my goodness. That's hilarious! Hooray for stocky girls. At least you can save on the clothes budget for a while (because we all know girl clothes are nearly impossible to resist).

Lindsay and Maren got mistaken for twins all the time. At BYU they were taking a volleyball class. Maren walked in and someone turned to Aaron (Lindsay's husband) and said, "Hey, your wife's in this class." So this may be what your girls are in for; totally cute and fun.

Ashley and I always got confused for twins, it was annoying growing up, but now I love it!!! Also, it is nice to share clothes, we have been doing it ever since I can remember, and it can save you some money!!

That is crazy that they can fit the same outfit! It is true, Lindsay and I have been mistaken as twins or people think I'm Lindsay. It's fine though, and yes it will be so fun for them to share clothes!
