Can't wait to see David interact with his whole family when AI sends the singers home for their homecoming week. The whole town of Murray is going to go nuts....that is going to be an awesome show!

He really does look older. Maybe it's because he likes sports so he's "bigger"? But oh well, it may be just because of his looks. Personality-wise, they definitely are both shy!

So the shyness runs in the family :D
Yes, David is just a male version of his mother.

I think David said in his interview that he is often mistaken for "THE YOUNGER brother" because he looks more like a 14 year old and Daniel looks more like a 17 year old.

I don't think he was trying to imply that people mistake them for one another because they look alike. Play it back...I just did. He is fun to watch/listen to.

Daniel does look like David's older bro. They don't look too much alike, but its cool seeing this vid.

well one they have in common is that their shyness makes me smile unconsciously :) Daniel does look older though, while David's just simply adorable.
Hm, David looks more like the mom and Daniel looks more like the dad IMO but it's cool how musical skills are influenced throughout their family.

David had said that they are mistaken for one another all the time. People always say to Daniel re David: "So this must be your younger brother, Daniel." lol.

David is only about 3 or so years older than his brother. I think I probably acted goofy at his age as well.

Some people remain young at heart for a long time.

Siblings don't always look a lot alike, but the two Archuleta boys do, IMO. Daniel probably does have more of his dad in him, while David looks very much like his very striking mother. (Their youngest sister looks like David -- a complete doll -- I've seen pics.)

David may act young in some ways, but he shows a lot of wisdom for his age, too. Sometimes when people are strongly gifted in an area, there are other compensations.

Hmmm, I wonder if they are half brothers. I've never thought David look anything like his father...but his younger brother sure does. Hmmm?
