Signs point to ID!

So our DI/DI boys are looking more alike every day, and it turns out that they have BLUE eyes. They're brightening up like crazy and are definitely turning a gorgeous baby blue, as opposed to that gray-blue. For us to have a baby with blue eyes is a 5% chance, so having fraternal twins with blue eyes would actually be a 2.5% chance, making it far more likely that they're ID. I was also looking at the bottoms of their feet yesterday, and their right feet are identical to each other, and their left feet are identical to each other, but the feet on each boy are totally mismatching. As in, Max's left foot and right foot have completely different wrinkles, but they match Miles' left and right perfectly. 

This twin thing just keeps surprising. It's like the gift that keeps on giving!

  • If the chance is 5 for one then if they are fraternal the chance for both to have blue eyes is actually 0.25, so much much smaller. Sounds like they are probably ID to me!
  • They are adorable fraternal or identical :-)

  • We finally got our di-di girls tested a little over a month ago and they turned out to be identical!  It took less than 2 weeks to test and get results.  I started getting suspicious when all their teeth were coming in mirrored the other one.

  • Nice! My babies have gorgeous blue eyes like ice blue and they didnt get them from either one of us I'm jealous haha!
  • My di/di girls started to look more and more alike as they got older too. We were pretty sure they were ID since both of them ended up with blond hair (which is even lighter now), blue eyes, and light skin and my DH is Hispanic (DD1 has dark
