Family Resemblence

We get asked all the time, "Who does Ava look like?"  We think we have it figured out.  She is her mother from the eyes up and her father from the nose down.  
However, when I saw this picture, I had a shocking realization...
She looks just like ME at this age!!  
Want to know what I looked like?  EXACTLY LIKE THIS.  It's really unbelievable and surreal to see yourself in your child, but I'm telling you, we could be twins in this photo :) I used to do the exact same thing with my mouth and my eyes and hair looked just like this (maybe a little less red though!).  Naturally, I happen to think she's beautiful!!  Ha ha.  I will have to scan some baby photos from my Mom when she comes, so you can see what I'm talking about.  But, I certainly never realized how much she takes after me, until this photo surfaced on facebook!  Do not be mistaken however, there is still plenty of her Daddy in this little girl!  Particularly when it comes to an abundance of energy and a frequency of boredom.  Yep, then she's DEFINITELY her father's daughter!!

I SERIOUSLY can't get over how much she looks like you in that first picture!!! That is YOU. But I still see Dad in her sometimes and I see my baby pictures too.--Like the 1st pic. in the 3 month post--I think her chin looks like mine and her eyes sometimes. So fun! She's the cutest baby in this whole entire world.
