Hi ladies,

it's been a long time since I've checked in here, but I do stop by occasionally to see if any of the grads have posted updates. :smileyhappy:  I just thought I'd post and let you know that we recently found out that our girls are actually identical twins (as they grew they started to look uncannily alike, so we paid to have a zygosity test done and were shocked to find out they are indeed identical. We had no clue and all assumed they were fraternal). Most people don't understand why it "matters", but parents of multiples seem to get it  as it's a shift thinking after months of believing them to be fraternal.

Anyway, just thought I'd pop in - the girls are 14 months old now and doing great. Would love to hear how you all are doing if anyone is still around!

They are adorable! I'm still lurking around. The twin boys just turned 2 and my younger twins are almost 8 months old now. All doing great.

Thanks Sarah (I'll definitely find your blog!) and Elissa! They are really sweet girls and have been such (relatively) easy babies/toddlers so far. We feel pretty blessed. :smileyhappy:
