Not Your Typical Identical Twins.

Lincoln and Byron Ryman are identical twins, although it might be a couple years before anyone has difficulty telling them apart. The twins were born 11 weeks premature, and doctors thought that Lincoln (the smaller of the two, at just over 1lb) wouldn't survive after they noticed he had stopped growing early in the pregnancy.

Amazingly, both have now started gaining weight and are expected to remain healthy. Link [Daily Mail] via Unique Daily

Lincoln and Byron's condition - the twin-to-twin transfusion - is actually not terribly rare; it's caused by a malformation of the placenta that results in one of the twins getting far greater blood flow than the other. A couple I know has a set of twins that had the same thing going on, but the OB/GYN caught it early and an in-utero surgical procedure corrected it.

It's hard to tell them apart now, 18 months later, as they tear around like mad-toddlers!
