THose photos made me grin. So sweet!

We painted nail polish on 2 fingernails of one of our girls, just in case. Fingers are much more accessible than bottoms of feet and earlobes, which is esp handy during those sleep-deprived moments (errr, I mean, the entire first 3 weeks)!

They are beautiful!

As far as telling them apart, I would search for something that is different and use that. We have used name bracelets too. But mine (both sets) have opposite parts in the hair so I use that.

They're beautiful! Sharpie or nail polish works, but when you get less sleep-deprived (ha!), take the time to look over all of their bodies really closely - you might be surprised at the differences you find. It took us weeks to find it ('cause they were in the NICU), but one of our girls has the tiniest little cafe au lait birth mark on her knee and the other doesn't.

Also, do they have "stork bite" birthmarks on their eyelids, under their noses or on the back of their necks? You might find that they are in different (or opposite) patterns, and that can help. Those fade over the first year, but they're helpful "tells" till you get to know their personalities.

Congratulations again! Are you going to test to see if they're MZ or not?

I think we might wait a little bit and then test...see if they do end up looking a little different in a month or two. The question is driving me nuts, and I've heard from other parents of multiples that it is worth the fee as EVERYONE will ask you and saying "we don't know" leads to so much more discussion than when you have a definitive answer. My husband is convinced they aren't MZ, but he also can't tell them apart and is terrified of mixing them up at some point

They are gorgeous babies! We never had a hard time telling ours apart so I can't help there. Ours were mz but one had a ton more hair than the other. While I was pregnant one of my biggest fears was mixing them up and having them mixed up for life
