Little Girls Have Sweetest Reaction When They Realize They're Identical

Share

The birth rate of twins has been increasing since 1980. In fact, there were 33.9 twins born for every 1,000 births in 2014 — a record high for twin births — according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics.

The increase in twin births could be attributed to assisted reproductive technology, such as in vitro fertilization, however, that is not always the case.

I personally know one family that has two sets of twins, both of which were conceived naturally.

But no matter how the twins are born, it is no secret that the kids will have a special bond growing up. Especially if they are identical.

Take Alexis and Ava, for example. These two are identical twins, but they are not quite sure what that means.

“Let me guess about it,” Ava said when asked what the word “twin” means.

Her sister, Alexis, jumped in with a guess that it means “adorable.” While there is no denying that these little girls are adorable, that wasn’t quite the right answer.

They mention that they have the same birthday, but then their mother tells them that they look alike. Their reaction to the news is priceless.

The girls begin to giggle and continue to examine each other’s faces that are so similar to their own.

All seems right in the world until they’re asked which one of them is older. Ava was born one minute before Alexis, and after she realizes it, Alexis has a meltdown.

“I want to be older!” she cries. Ava reaches over to give her twin a big hug to comfort her. Alexis seems to be confused with the difference between older and bigger.

Then the two measure up to each other, and finding that Alexis is a little taller, Ava begins to cry because she thinks she isn’t growing. Then it’s Alexis’ turn to comfort her sister.

These two have a sweet bond that will hopefully only get stronger as they grow up.
