I Discovered Something Amazing

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.

Ok, so I didn't look past the Blond/Blue to the Black/Brown. I did, however, notice the size of the eyes without the help of the photos. You wanted to go to Fabricland. Where does Daphne like to go?

wow, I've never seen the photo with the cat. Doesn't look like you I don't think. I guess I just don't remember you when you were that young. :)

Wow! How could we not have noticed the similarities before!?

I was so inspired I went to the mirror, and except for the flabby figure, pasty white complection, lack of musical talent and absence of hordes of screaming fans, I'm pretty sure I saw Julio Iglesias staring back....

Um, Dad, are you mocking me?

Would your dad mock you?

Gramma K always has thought she resembles Erin, at least that is the same family! I think you should post some of her daddy's baby pictures (he was a cute baby) and let everyone decide for themselves. How about it?? Her mommy's side will probably win.

Aww Gramma K, that is so nice! I've actually heard that before...sad for Melissa that people say she looks like me, but fun for the aunt!! :)
