All About Twins

Children's Book About TwinsIt never ceases to amaze me when I see a set of twins. They may look identical or just similar, but they are so unique that we stop to admire this small miracle.

In some ways it would be great to have a twin. You always have someone to play with as a child and as you move into your teen years, you have double the wardrobe. Plus, I always thought it would be nice to have someone with my identical looks to try out a radical new hairdo on, before I took the plunge.

Adorable-looking twins with curly hairMost of us know twins are produced in the way eggs are developed in the womb. Fraternal twins do not always look alike because they come from two separate eggs that have been fertilized. Identical twins occur when one single egg splits in two, each producing a fetus.

Scientists believe the fraternal twin gene can be passed down from generation to generation. So if your mother or grandmother had twins your chances of having them will increase.

When toddlers begin to babble, it rarely makes any sense to us; however, their twin usually can understand and respond back. Plus, many twins have reported being aware if something is happening to their twin, even if they are many miles apart. This special bond twins share is remarkable and starts in the womb.

The mother’s womb is a very small space, even more so if you are sharing it with another person. So twins start to bond inside their mom before they are even born.

Twins will touch hands or heads inside their mom and seem to instinctively know to watch around the eye area. In addition, some of the in-womb traits will still hold once they are born. One mother of twins said her one son was stretched out, while the other was always tucked in a little ball. She noticed once they were born (and to this day, 7 years later) they still sleep exactly the same way, even though there is plenty of room.

Twins may be double the work when they’re newborns and double the expense to raise, but these people truly are a marvel of nature. Plus, who wouldn’t want the closeness and bonds that only twins can share? The next time you see twins, truly take in the specialness these unique individuals have the privilege of sharing.
