People have always said that Daphne looks like David. I think it's hard to look at your own baby and see anything but your baby, but I can see that David and Daphne both have blondish hair and I do not. So I have just been following the crowd and saying she looks like her father.
The other night I decided to do a little digging to see if there were any baby photos of me that maybe, possibly had a little Daphne in them. That is when I discovered something amazing.
Take away the blond hair/blue eyes and tell me you see it!! And we have the exact same hair, except for the color. Hers is the same length as mine was at this same age, and it's doing the same curly/longish-on-the-back-and-sides mullet thing. We're practically twins! Why has no one who knew me as a baby mentioned this? Did you all forget what I looked like?
Fortunately I was never caught making any sort of face like this:
Then this afternoon I discovered another amazing similarity between Daphne and I. Last night she did not sleep well, and then did not sleep during her morning nap this morning. She was pretty much a mess all day today. So this afternoon as I was bouncing her around the living room I asked her, "Daphne, do you wanna go shoppin'?" It was like turning on a light switch as she suddenly got very happy and bouncy. She is truly a girl after my own heart.
So from now on, everyone has to say that Daphne gets her good looks from me. It's just the right thing to do.
