Moments to Look Forward to With Twins


We at Twiniversity wanted to know what our fans thought were the moments that new twin parents have to look forward to with their twins. So we asked them “What has been your favorite twin milestone so far?”

Here’s what they had to say:

– When they started playing and giggling together. When they’re alone you can hear nothing but baby belly laughs.   ∼ AR
