This Picture Says It All

This picture….

…says everything you need to know about Ms. L and Ms. M.
Ms. L is happy, easy going, and (most of the time) pretty friendly.
Ms. M, on the other hand, is cantankerous, does not like when things do not go her way (I put her down for the picture and she was NOT happy), and moody.

And so it goes…


  1. Melissa (Confessions of a Dr. Mom) says:
    Wonderful job capturing their essence! They are both completely adorable :)
  2. DIAPERS in the DESERT says:
    Even Happy/Sad they are SUPER CUTE!! Adorable!!
  3. I love that they look alike but are so different.
  4. Oh they are so cute!!! Just like my boys, totally different!!!
  5. The Empress says:
    Your life? Your life, again...has me laughing out loud.

    Such glee these little missies bring me. I don't know why...I think b/c I can so picture you on the other end....with the hair pulling.

    Maybe I smile b/c it's not me??

    IDK, but I do love my girls.

    Thank you
  6. Oh Natalie, this is priceless! Just captures them quite perfectly, it seems. And like Alexandra, I picture you on the other side of the camera just about to pull your hair out (or order a glass of wine!).

    Great pic...and I would still keep them for a weekend for you. They're that cute.

    Aww! You know, that's kind of the way it is though when you have multiple children. I was just thinking about that the other day. That we don't have a single photo of all 4 kids looking in the right direction and with a pleasant smile on their faces. At the same time! *sigh*
  8. This reminds me of a picture I have of my cousin and I when we were young. My mom and aunt took us to a photo studio. Said studio had ONE ball prop to make kids happy. There are two pictures, in each of them the girl with the ball is beaming while the other is sobbing. Each of our moms have the one with their respective daughters smiling. And so it goes in the world of multiple child photos!
  9. This picture is adorable.
    I can only imagine as they grow up and into their respective personalities.
  10. Its funny how they can look so much alike and be so different.
  11. Priceless picture! My sister is pregnant with identical twin boys due any day now. I am excited to see them grow and develop! Beautiful babies.
  12. Secret Mom Thoughts says:
    They are so cute!
  13. That is just priceless. That's pretty much how all my pictures of my boys look!
  14. LOL! Great picture
  15. Funky Mama Bird says:
    Awesome picture! Ms. M and Gunne Bear have a lot in common - he freaks when he doesn't get his way either.
  16. That picture is all sorts of awesome, Natalie.
    I love that you have this to show them when they're older.
    I can't wait to see what the future brings for those sweet children of yours!
  17. Megan (Best of Fates) says:
    That photo is SUCH perfection - I love it!
  18. this is a great picture!! I'm sure they'll love looking back at it when they're older.
  19. MommaKiss says:
    It's almost like Yin & Yang or Jekyl & Hyde :)
  20. I so see myself, some six years ago, in you. Being able to laugh about it all is a gift. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
  21. That is a great picture! I love it.
  22. Cuz I'm the mama! says:
    That describes my twin girls exactly. It still amazes me, though, how very different they are.
  23. Those dresses are adorable. I kind of want them
  24. I love how this picture captured their personalities in just one shot. They are both too adorable!!
  25. I'm thinking you're in for a fun 16-22 years!
  26. Hilarious. That is pretty much how our santa photo went this year too!
  27. Snuggle Wasteland says:
    They're so cute! This will be something to show the prom dates...
  28. Leslie @ crunchybetty says:
    Haha. This may be the best Wordless Wednesday I've ever seen. Too cute.
  29. I have two boys (not twins) complete opposites physically and psychologically. Makes life interesting, doesn't it? (Being a graphic designer, this is why I LOVE photoshop) :-)
  30. Mandyland says:
    That photo? Awesome. Seriously awesome.
  31. Great picture!
  32. Lori @ In Pursuit of Martha Points says:
    Oh my stars, how amazingly perfect!!

  33. Bahahaha! SO glad to know I'm not the only one who can't get their twins to BOTH take a good picture at the same time. Sheesh.

    Very cute pic. ;)
  34. Sluiter Nation says:
    can you imagine them as teenagers?

    sorry! SORRY!
