Former conjoined twins say ‘dada' in latest video

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Twin babies who just a few months ago were conjoined are really starting to excel after their surgery.

They are now starting to talk.

The mother of Anias and Jadon McDonald posted a video of the twins saying “Dada.”

They were born at Rush Hospital in September of 2015 and were conjoined at the head.

They underwent several surgeries to reroute the blood flow between their brains.

Seven weeks ago, doctors in New York performed a risky 27-hour surgery to separate the brothers.

They are both recovering well.
