You & Me Always

Considering the amount of time spent comparing the baby’s features to our own (I think he has my nose but E’s eyes but my hair texture and E’s color but my toes and E’s wrists and my elbows, etc etc etc), it’s amazing it took me this long to actually dig out some old baby pics and compare tiny Baby Evan to Baby Suzanne and Baby E. It’s extra fun because my birthday is only 5 days (and, uh, twenty*cough*cough*cough* years) after the baby’s. So in July and September and December we’re almost the same age.  This is probably the last time I ever enjoy having a birthday so close to my son’s.

So is he definitely my kid or what?

I supposed I should include his father in this little game too, although I think it’s pretty clear Baby Evan got most of his cute genes from me.

Oh. Well. Ok. Fine, then, I guess MAYBE the baby got a tiny bit of his father too.

But just let’s not forget Baby Evan is just as much Glidden* as I am:

*Ok, so this relative isn’t actually a Glidden but it’s still my dad’s side. Whatever, I’m not a genealogist, you want historical accuracy go talk to someone who gets paid for that sort of thing.

(Edited so hopefully y’all can see the pictures. Anyone know WHY they wouldn’t work on some screens?)

    Erin, what can’t you see? They all seem to work on my computer and on my phone.

    Yeah I can’t see all the pictures either….they are cut off on the right side. Cute post though!!! :)

  4. Erin says:

    The right side. Some of them are under the ads.

  5. Erin says:

    Oh wait, most of them are fixed now. (should have looked before I made that last comment). Only one is still hanging over, but no biggy. They are all adorable!!! One question though, did you pose some of those to look like picture that you had of you or are you just your mother’s twin behind the camera??? :)

    Wow, I really didn’t see how much he looks like you before this. It’s funny how one obvious feature (like bright red hair) can make people think he looks like one parent when all the other more subtle things combined really add up to the other one :)

    And that one in the green dress looks more like Carolyn than you :)

    The only one we staged is the Christmas one, which funny enough is the one where he looks the least like me. Also, I had a photo of him drinking from a cup in the tub and I came across that one in my baby book so the next time he took a bath I used a red cup.

    Actually, in my green dress I look more like my friend Megan’s daughter!
