Twin Nephews

I have a 5 year old son and 3 year old twin girls. When I found out I was expecting twins (my son was only 18 months at the time), shocked is not the word! We all got over the shock and absolutely adore them. So thinking that was our quota of twins in the family, we all moved on.

Then last year, my brother announced he was having twins! We all couldn’t believe it. My twins are identical and so are his, so they should not be running in the family! What is this all about?

My twin nephews were born at 36 weeks, in August last year. picture of newborn identical twin boys

Last week, they had their first birthday. Where has the time gone?

They had a Mickey Mouse theme with lovely outfits (not sure what they’ll think when they look back at 18?!). They had loads of presents and lots of attention. Just what turning 1 is all about!

    How lovely that you both had twins! I was shocked when I found out I was having my twins and my son was about the same age as yours was. The twins are 6 now and my son is 8. It surprises me how people don’t realise that identical twins actually don’t run in families. Happy birthday to your gorgeous nephews :-)

      Wow, twins are great :)
      Can I ask, do you like being an identical twin or did you hate it growing up? I’d love to know another twins thoughts x

        we loved it till we were probably about 12 and then people opinions and words were quite annoying, referring to us as one of the twins (as opposed to our names) or twinny were slightly ego bashing to a teen lol

    What cutie pies!! Love the little outfits! Twins seem to be on the increase! I have a large number of friends who have had multiples recently where there was no history of multiples in either family!

    How adorable and such a fluke for one family.

  10. You have a lovely family, nature is a funny thing, I so didn’t expect to have triplets on my fourth pregnancy!

    • karen bell says:

      Nature is definitely a funny thing. I can’t even begin to imagine how shocked you were when you were told you were having triplets on your 4th pregnancy!! Finding out about twins was shocking enough on my second pregnancy!

  11. Absolutely beautiful :) what a funny coincidence!at least you can both compare notes! Thanks for linking to PoCoLo x
