Who's Who...

... the big question ...

Can we tell them apart?

I can, can you? {grin} I will say, the first week was hard... we actually painted Nolia's finger nail so we could be sure to know who was who. After a few days I could tell them apart pretty well without looking for the painted nail. It's easier when they are together, when they are apart it's harder to be sure who you're looking at. They are most defiantly identical twins!

Baby A {Eliza} was 5 lbs. 4 1/2 oz. and Baby B {Nolia} was 5 lbs. 8 1/2 oz.
The few ounces difference is actually the biggest difference about them, Nolia's cheeks are slightly fuller.
Eliza was in the birth canal a lot longer than Nolia so her head was more compressed making her look a little smaller.
Although both the weight and head difference will likely fade away within the next few weeks. {according to their pedi}

Oh and for those who are wondering how in the world do you say Nolia...
it's Noll-ee-ah as in the beautiful Magnolia flower


{Eliza} {Nolia}

I can't stop looking at them and thinking "how did we become SOOO blessed" I love my little girls beyond words!

  2. I love their little tummies!

    Do they often lay or move into the position they occupied in your womb?

  7. Girls! I just had to say that...I bet you are in disbelief?! Do you find yourself calling them he or him? We did that to my nephew when he was newborn (she & her). He was the first boy after 5 girls!

    Keep the pictures coming!

    I too find myself thinking of your 4 boys and wondering how they are doing, what funny little tidbits have come from their mouths about all this change and 2 little girls around. ;)

  35. When we were just born and for a couple weeks neither Mom or Dad could tell us apart. They had to check the strawberry birthmark I had behind my knee. That was the only way. It became easier... but she still got us mixed up if we had bonnets on.

    Enjoy them!

  40. Oh I fotgot to mention...I LOVE their names...so pretty!

    I am still praying for you. My heart feels sad of all you were robbed of in those last pregnancy moments. I pray that the Lord will heal your heart and your body. The Lord is good and I know He must just fill your heart with so much joy when you see and smell and touch your precious baby girls!! That is evident through your words and pictures.

    Love and prayers,
    Elizabeth
