My second-born has always had a strong resemblance to his dear old mom. Back in July of 2013 I blogged about it here at String of Pearls, and I showed you this side-by-side photo comparison. Kind of eerie, isn't it?
|I used to dress my two oldest boys like twins, as you can see.|
(How do you like the athletic shorts & dress shirt combo?)
But this little guy looked more like me than his older brother!
Well, that smooth-faced little boy grew up, and the resemblance between us seemed to be a thing of the past. For instance, today he sports varying amounts of facial hair (which I don't, thank goodness...YET, anyway!). His soft boy face has morphed into a rugged man face. I'm a shrinking Grammy with fragile bones, and he's a big, strong ex-offensive lineman. How could we possibly still look alike?
Well, check out this mother-son picture from his November 2014 wedding.
While you're at it, notice that we even dressed up in a similar shade of gray. Awww...and we didn't even plan that.
I used to think it would be interesting, after Bonny Babe and Cutie Pie get a little bit older, to ask what it's like to look at another person's face and feel like you're looking in a mirror. Never mind. I think I know!
