How Cute is Too Cute?

Since day one, I've made a conscious effort to treat the babies as two individuals rather than just "the twins". The fact that they look completely different makes it easier. I like to spend private quality time with each one, I take pictures of them separately, and each has his own toys and blankets and even baby shampoo! And most important of all, I always always ALWAYS dress them in different clothes. Because we've received so many matching outfits as gifts, we do have a lot of clothing doubles, and my mother and mother-in-law and our babysitter will often dress them alike. But when I pick out the clothes, they never match. Not only do I think it's important for their individuality (even at age 5 months), but they also have very different "looks" and are each favored by different colors and styles of clothing.
That said, I found these adorable "Wonder Twin Powers Activate" onesies the other day and actually couldn't resist buying them, putting them on the babies immediately, and documenting it for all to see. Let's hope it doesn't scar them for life!
What's your stance on dressing twins and siblings alike?
