Like Mother, Like Daughter

I think Lily is picking up on one of my habits…

That’s the boys’ Lego themed digital camera she’s got there. While she hasn’t figured out how to hold it up to her face yet, I’ll cut her some slack… she is only (almost) 13 months after all!

And she’s cute. Slack is automatically given to cute babies.

I also have noticed in more in more pictures that she looks a lot like I did as a baby and toddler. I really should stop being so busy lazy and scan a couple of my old baby pictures just so I can show you what I mean. For now, I swiped a picture off my mom’s Facebook page!

That’s my mom and me when I was about Lily’s age now. My hair was much lighter than hers, but if she got my hair-lightening gene than her hair will be blond in the summer too. I don’t see the biggest resemblance in this picture, but it’s all I’ve got that’s digital right now.

It’s funny, while I was growing up people constantly were telling me I looked like my mom. I totally didn’t see it, and neither did my mom. I think we both see it somewhat now, but still not to the extent that other people remark about it.

People really see the similarity in Lily and the boys (as do I), and while I definitely am seeing more and more of me in Lily, I never felt like I saw much of me in the boys. Random babblings here, I know. Anyway, I’ll see if I can maybe pry myself away from a cup of coffee long enough to find my baby book and scan a couple of pictures in so I can really compare! At the rate I’m going, I should have that done and blogged in a couple of months 😉

    Susan Heim - I had to chuckle when I read what you wrote about you and your mom because when you posted a picture of your mom a while back, I said to myself, “Lily looks just like her!” I could definitely see the resemblance in their facial features.ReplyCancel

    RoseAnne (Mom) - Oh, I see the resemblance between the two of you in the pictures above. Especially around the eyes, nose and cheeks 🙂 What a total cutie.ReplyCancel
