Just like me

April 7, 2012 – I have to admit, I did a small double take when I saw the photo of little e, above. I mean, I knew it was him but I had to look again for just a second. You see, I was taking pictures of the two of us on the iPhone using the front camera. He was blocking shots with his hand. So there was a tiny possibility it was actually a picture of me. To prove I wasn’t seeing things, I looked for (did not pose for) a picture of myself. I found this one, my annual birthday self-portrait from 2011. See how similar? The eye, the nose . . . but the clincher is the way his lips are set, making him look, in this moment anyway, just like me.

  1. whoa…that is so cool how much you two look alike! your mini me! i feel the same way when i see liam’s baby photos and mine. you two are both beautiful and there is no doubt he is your son. something so comforting about the resemblance, eh?

    • You flatter me 😉 When S was born she looked just like her papa. So when I saw that little e had my chin dimple, I couldn’t help but point out “he got that from me!” This is the first time that I really thought he looked like me. I usually just see parts: E’s eyebrows, my chin dimple, Opa’s eyecolour . . .
