I've been wondering about my boys too. Just waiting to have a little extra cash to order the cheek swab test.

Here is a recent pic:

Trouble-Trouble

They seem to be getting MORE alike as time goes on!

So we just got the test results back...they are IDENTICAL! How funny...I guess I just always thought that identical twins are clones of each other. Yet without looking at them I can tell which one is which because they each have a different cry. I'm glad I got the test done. I even just had another person in the store ask me tonight like an hour ago and I had to say "well we'll find out in a few days". It's just nice to know.

My brother's MIL always swore that her MZ granddaughter's couldn't be identical because she could tell them apart.

YAY glad you got the results back and now can say definitely either way. Maybe some day when we have the extra cash we may do it too.

So you got a definitive answer AND you got to stick it a tiny bit to your MIL? Well worth the money!
