I was about 8 months old in that picture, but it has to be one of my favorite of me as a baby. Besides the point though.
Lately it seems like people insist our daughter looks just like my husband, which my husband and I have been laughing off, because if you take a close look at his baby picture, it couldn’t be any further from the truth.
And if you want to get really technical about it, Addison is almost a carbon copy of our oldest son Camden as a baby.
But whenever someone tells me she looks just like her Daddy, I want to snap and scream… No! She looks like ME!
I think it is a mix of postpartum hormones (Wait… can I still blame those even though she is almost 2 months old?) and the fact that out of all three of my children barely anyone has said any of my children look like me after I carried them for nine month, and gave birth to them?
I mean, look at that picture and then look at this one:
A little bit? Something? Maybe my eyes? I know she has my nose and lips! But is that it?
Well, I guess if there is one thing I know she got from me… it is my exotic bird hair… Her hair is about as easy to tame as mine, and that is mission impossible. It has become an ongoing joke in out house now.
In fact, when our oldest son was a new baby, he earned the nick name Don King because of his case of Mommy’s exotic bird hair… See exhibit b:
I am sure you get the picture… So who do you think Addison looks like?
Be honest… you won’t hurt my feelings!
