Twins often have entire lifetimes that are intertwined with each other. From sharing their mother’s womb to keeping a strong bond throughout childhood and adulthood – these siblings really are like two peas in a pod!
While the remarkable relationship between twins seems to be inevitable, many parents feel they can actually pinpoint when their babies really connected for the first time. Fortunately, some of these special moments are captured on film and shared for all of us to enjoy as well. Just like the video below, which features an interaction that’s simply heart-melting.
The majority of people can’t say they have a twin. According to the CDC, there are approximately 33 sets of twins born per 1,000 births.
Yet, a lot of us have wondered what it would be like to grow up with one.
Having another person that looks similar to you sounds fascinating – and as a kid, you might have envisioned all the mischief you could get into with the power. There’s a reason why they make movies and television show plots about identical twins (and strangers) doing the old switch-a-roo. Come on, who didn’t wish they could pull their own kind of “Parent Trap?”
But even more than how incredible it must be to have someone that looks like your mirror reflection – it’s having that built-in best friend for life that’s most enviable.
The video below is titled “Twin Boys See Each Other For The First Time” and it’s footage of identical four-month-olds.
While the babies surely had spent a lot of time together since birth (and were inseparable nine months before that), the mom noticed there was a specific time when they really seemed to connect.
Both of the little ones are laying next to each other on the carpet and have their eyes locked. Not only that, their tiny hands are in reaching distance too.
The baby on the right immediately lets out a big smile looking at his brother, and in response, the other baby tries using his voice. One thing’s for sure, they seem completely mesmerized.
These brothers are going to have a lot to talk about.
Many times, even in friend groups, there can be someone who’s more of a “talker” and someone who’s more of a “listener.” The baby on the left adorably continues to babble while his brother seems to just take it all in. Although we’ll never know what he’s saying, going by the smile from the baby on the right – it’s as if he’s able to decode it all.
One viewer was able to relate to this “secret language,” commenting:
“My 4 month old twin grandsons do this. It’s so cute. However I think they’re plotting something against me. lol”
Surely these twins are destined for a lifetime of shared experiences, good times, and endless conversations and laughter. For this reason, it’s simply amazing to watch what mom feels was the first time they really “saw” each other.
Another viewer shared:
“I know the feeling. I still cry every time i watch the video of my twins when they noticed each other for the first time”
Someone else with twins wrote:
“I had twin boys they have been soulmates from the time they were born best friends there bond is very strong now they have grown up together xx”
