Change of Heart

I may have to take back my words. Eat crow. Whatever. When I found out I was expecting twins one of my first thoughts was, "I'm not going to dress them exactly alike." If other people want to buy us matching outfits, that's great, but I'm not personally going to buy them matching stuff. I thought if I bought them "coordinating" outfits that would be just fine. You know like, same plaid outfit, but in different colors.

So, now I have twins. At home. Together. Friday night we went out for our first outing and I dressed them alike. And they were so CUTE all matchy-matchy! Now, all I want to do is dress them the same. Plus, on Sunday, we headed up town dressed completely different (no coordination whatsoever) and I had a couple of older ladies ask me if they were twins. It might eliminate that question if they are the same.

What do you think? Dress them identical or not?

Some people will automatically ask if they are twins whether they are dressed alike or not. So don't worry about buying identical outfits for every occassion.

As a twin myself, my mom rarely dressed us alike but almost always dressed us in matching outfits but different colors. I was always in green, my sister in red or blue.... when we were old enough to dress ourselves, we NEVER dressed alike. Funny thing now is that we have bought the same shirt numerous times when not even shopping together or at the same time! I say do whatever your little heart desires because they are little for such a short period of time and pretty soon it isn't going to matter what you want them to wear, they'll have their own ideas!! So glad you guys are ALL home!

It makes shopping a lot easier if they wear the same thing!

I love your babies dressed identically or similarly, you can only do it for so long before they have an opinion about what they wear, I say go for it while you can :)

I think "matchy, matchy" is just fine! As others have said, you won't get to do it for long!

I agree we love dressing the boys alike but nice to do different sometimes, however you will get that question so much. They will be dressed alike, both in car seats, and we still will get, are they twins?? Now what babies do you know that look the same, same size, dressed the same, etc. here is your sign. Its just funny because i get that question so much and people I feel know the answer:). Enjoy dressing them the same or different it is so fun because you can do it and Blake is not in a hospital outfit:).
