We May Be Twins, But.....

I thought it would be fun to write a blog about the similarities and difference between Grace and Joshua. They may be twins, but they are most assuredly NOT the same children!

Sucks left thumb, but only once half asleep. Paci first, then thumb.
LOVES to be naked!
Thinks it is fun to play with her toys with her feet.
Is happy, but not all that talkative. She saves conversation for the "important" stuff.
Is the worlds SLOWEST eater.
She's a deep, deep sleeper...like her mommy. :-) She will sleep through anything once she is asleep.
Grace is a deep thinker. She sits back and takes it all in.
Can't handle being awake for long periods of time.
Gracie LOVES the toys on the play gym.
Coughs when she cries.
Really doesn't care for the car much.
LOVES to shop and will just ride in the cart and quietly look around watching.
Burps rather daintily.
Can do tummy time all day long and rolls over.

Wants the paci and nothing else! Hasn't really discovered even how to suck his thumb.
Is a kicker while he eats. Kick, kick, kick those feet!
Is a CHATTERBOX! He will coo and goo and babble at anyone who will listen.
A HUNGRY boy and eats FAST.
He's a light sleeper and more restless. He startles easily and wakes at noises.
When he goes to sleep he covers his face with his hands and LOVES to have his head rubbed.
Likes to stay awake longer than Gracie.
Joshua LOVES the toys on the bouncy seat.
Has a low, slow, deep groan when he starts to cry.
Loves to ride in the car, but it must be moving at all times! No stopping allowed!
Sleeps through every shopping trip.
Burps like a man. :-)
HATES tummy time, can barely get his head up, and is no where near rolling over.

Joshua and Gracie:
LOVE their big brother Jacob and could watch him play for hours.
Don't really like to be left alone anywhere...they always want at least one person around.
Have smiles that will light up a room.
They both get mad right before they pass out for a nap. Really mad....
Are morning babies...happiest first thing in the morning when Mommy comes in and says, "Good morning babies!"
Both have issues with the 9PM feeding. Tummy issues or something?

I know there are more, but they are more different than they are alike!


  1. I love this!! I might "steal" your idea and compare my twins too!! Isn't it amazing how alike and different they are?

  2. Love all the updates! My heart is aching to see Jacob, Grace, and Joshua! Love reading about the babies' quirks and personalities. You are a wonderful mother. I'm so glad you can stay at home!!
