This is Miss Chatterbox at a 5 months.
This is The Bun a few days shy of 5 months.
|Excuse the poor lighting - I only have my camera phone right now.|
It's kinda creeping me out.
Why, you ask?
I'm not really sure. Maybe because I value individuality and uniqueness and I feel like they may lose a little of that if they can be mistaken for each other. Or maybe because I'm feeling a little bit like a chinese factory that churns out identical knickknacks. If they start to look anymore alike, I may be forced to stamp 1 of 3, and 2 of 3 (maybe 3 of 3 when they arrive) on their feet so I can tell them apart.
Last night, I had a moment when I was rocking The Bun, at some god awful hour that should be illegal to be awake, when I couldn't remember what year it was or what kid I was holding! I must have wandered around for a good 5 minutes in that black hole before the space time continuum decided to click back into place. Or maybe I watch too much Star Trek.
Am I over thinking this? As an only child myself, I don't have personal experience with sibling interactions, so I have no idea what is the most important part to worry about. So I'm overcompensating and worrying about it all.
What is the most important thing to know/do/worry about when it comes to siblings?
