Like Mother, Like Daughter

A few weeks ago, Grams and Grandad were shopping with Our Little Princess in San Antonio. While we were trying on shoes, there was a man nearby who approached Grams and said "I bet your daughter looks just like you and this little one looks just like her Mom."

Anytime there's a new baby in the family, there's always a lot of talk about who he or she looks like. My father-in-law used to say "she doesn't look like anyone but herself." Mostly I tend to agree with him. Frankly, I've always thought Our Little Princess looks a little bit like her older half-sister who lives in Chicago; until recently that is.

I recognized a few months ago that there is a remarkable resemblance between Our Little Princess and her mother. Last weekend when she stayed with us, I had the chance to "do" her hair. Since it's so hot, I did it the way I used to do her Mom's ... pig tails. As soon as I finished, I knew there was no longer any question. In this photo, Our Little Princess on the left is 18 months old and her Mom on the right is 3 years old.  What do you think?


  1. Wow, that's funny. But I do get that a lot. I still say she totally has her dad's eyes, though--same color and shape.

  2. I think we need a picture of her father on the other side...just saying!!!

  3. Stopping by to say hi! Love this site!
