But for these sweet little ones in the video below, it means having a built-in comedian and buddy around forever! Every time one twin throws the other a certain look or makes a funny sound, the second twin cracks up with laughter.
Not only is the exchange between the two simply hilarious, but the baby's laughter is infectious! Thankfully, Mom thought to record this heartwarming moment and share it online for the world to see!
Since twins share identical DNA, it only makes sense that they share similar interests, likes, and dislikes! So when one twin laughs at something, the other is almost sure to follow!
Even though they get along well (for the most part), a fair amount of twins experience severe sibling rivalry. According to the Twins UK website, twins have to fight for their place in the world before they're even born.
From sharing a womb to celebrating their joint birthday to trying to play with the same toy, being a twin means that you're constantly forced to reassert your dominance. That's why so many twins experience incredibly strong sibling rivalry with their brother or sister.
This is the reason it's important for parents of twins to give them a sense of independence away from their twin. Twins also need to develop a sense of love and affection for each other even when that rivalry is rearing its head.
