Anyone who has spent any time with Maren and Beckett know that they are nothing alike. Now, given that they are fraternal twins (obviously) you wouldn't really expect them to be all that similar, but there are days when I question if one was switched at birth. No, really.
Here are a few examples...
Beckett has blond hair, blue eyes, fair skin and a lean body shape.
Maren has reddish brown hair, greenish eyes, olive skin and is an endomorph, like her Mama. ;)
Beckett loves anything that resembles a carbohydrate, whereas Maren channels her inner fruitarian on a daily basis. We often end up exchanging their leftovers at the end of a meal.
Maren loves books, and would be content to sit there all day and be read to. Beck needs to be on the move - all the time. He's run so many laps around our kitchen we've lost count.
Beckett is up with the birds (literally) and Maren would sleep until noon if she could.
Maren loves to be carried (especially in the Beco), but Beck could care less.
Beckett would nurse all day if I'd let him, whereas Maren can take it or leave it.
The only thing they agree on is that Maeve is the coolest kid they know, and that Mama's lap is always worth fighting for. Lucky me. :)
But, in all seriousness, do these kids even look related?
