When I was young I always wanted to be a twin, and now I am...hahaha One of my girls looks just like me and the other looks just like my Husband. It's the crazyest thing. Am I the only one with twins that look more like Mommy & Daddy??!

Happened with us too! But to make it even funnier, the one who looks like me has his daddy's personality. And the one who looks like his daddy has my personality! Twins by birth but then different as day and night LOL

We loved it having our boys known as the Hale twins or boys in the sports world they were the pair to reckon with on the lax and football field! It was fun, they even named a move after the boys in lax called it the Hale sandwich, cause they held different positions and would attack the player with the ball from opposite sides and get the ball everytime, it was great. really got the crowd going...they didn't have to second guess each other in the sport and played really well together.

Our twins are so different. One is so much like my husband and the other one is like me and his uncle. Very cute.

My boys are 2, and one looks just almost identical to his dad and the other looks very similar to me (and my dad!) I like it though, Im hoping that it will help them keep their own identies and personalities where they aren't know as "THE twins" i hate it when people refer to them as that, because I think they are two differnt people who just happen to be born on the same day to the same parents!! Have a wonderful day!

Least you had girls, I have boys and one looks like me (minus the fat thankfully for him) and the other is his fathers spittin image. Its weird, and he acts like me and we haven't always gotten along real well either cause I think we are so much alike. He is 16 now.

This is the best fraternal twin discussion ever! I am in the same boat. My 20 month old girls look nothing alike. One has long blonde curls, light blue eyes, fair skin and weighs 2-3 lbs less than her sister who is taller and has olive skin, hazel eyes and brown hair that is just starting to finally grow in. The funny thing is I think they both resemble my side of the family but the fair one is my husbands Scandanavian coloring!

No, but We got a little boy clone of Daddy and a little girl clone of mommy! And I mean CLONES!! Looks, attitudes, sizes....everything!! They are 4 1/2 now and continue to grow and look identical to he and I at each age. He has blonde hair, blue eyes, weighs just 30 lbs and is 32" tall. She has dark brown hair, DARK brown eyes, weighs 36lbs and is 34" tall. My hubby is tall and very thin and I'm short and a bit heavier than I'd like....just hope she doesn't inherit ALL of my genes! LOL BTW they were 6lbs 10oz and 6lbs 13oz at birth full term so no issues with growth, but what they've inherited!!

The same thing happened to us. Our first set of twins (girls) one looks like me and the other like their daddy. Our second set of twins (boys) same thing again. I never really thought that it could happen both times.

it's so funny how that happens huh? my girl, when she was born, her pictures were hardly distinguishable from my husband's baby pictures and the same with mine and my son's. Now they are both looking more and more like me...which is even stranger...but my husband and I were TOTAL opposite looking in our baby pics yet somehow, our TOTALLY different looking twins looked identical to each of us! Amazing, twins are! My girl has ghost-white skin, blonde hair and blue eyes while my son is beautiful brown skin, almost black eyes and black hair. He is HUGE! (just over 20 pounds at 12 months) and she is TINY (BARELY 16 pounds). I can never get over how different they are

My daughter is totally me and my son is all my husband. It is funny cuz my mom takes to her more and his mom is usually all about brayden! All I do is laugh about it. We get comments all the time about how much each one looks like each of us! I love it:)

I have twin girls and they are soo different. They are 17months old and one looks like me, the other looks like my husband. One is very outgoing (working toward being a bully), and the other is laid back. One is tiny and about 4 pounds smaller than the other. One has a round head, the other has an oval head. They are different in every way, but they do play with each other and will copy what the other one is doing. Too bad the smaller one won't copy her sister and start walking yet.

Hi Christina!
So many people are amazed by the fact that one of my fraternal twin girls looks just like me and the other like her dad! XD Of course, she looks like a 'girl' but her coloring is exactly like his, dark hair and eyes and a lovely dusky skin tone. Her sister is just a plain ol' white chick like me, blonde and blue eyed (altho I am more of a blue/green hazel). I call them my Moon and my Sun... or Yin and Yang LOL!

That is our family as well- my daughter Maggie is dark like her Dad with curly hair and artistic talent and our son Max looks like me with his blonde hair and love of reading and they are only 7.

[deleted account]

My daughter is me in miniature... it's actually scary how much she looks like me, and my son looked like his father when he was born but now he looks more like my dad's baby pictures.

i have twin boys (21 months) one looks just like me/my dad, the other looks more like dh and his dad. they have same hair color, eye color, skin tone, but that's where the similarities end. different head shapes, hair texture, mouths, noses and teeth...yet everyone says they look exactly alike (which they don't!)

My twin girls look exactly different. My husband is Hispanic, so Isabelle looks just like him with dark eyes and dark features, where Soraya looks just like me, a little white girl with light eyes. Crazy, we always say we can't deny them!

I think that is so neat actually :)

I have fraternal twin boys, a lot of people say one looks like me and one looks like daddy, some people say that they both look like combos of the both of us..

My boy/girl twins are the same way. The girl looks just like me and the boy looks just like my husband. There is no way when they get older anyone is going to think they are twins.
