Mini Me

When Charlotte was born, she looked so much like Joe. Naturally I thought she'd continue to look more and more like him as she got older. Even though she definitely got Daddy's hair, she's really starting to look more like me. Which I think is kind of awesome. Just sayin'. Sometimes I'll post a picture on FB and my mom will tell me later that I used to make that face when I was little. You gotta admit...that's pretty neat!

Mom says I did this a lot as a kid. 
And I think that's the cutest face ever!

I don't have a bunch of pictures of me as a baby/toddler/kid. My mom and Nana have 90% of them stuffed in photo albums in their closets. So when my [bio] dad sent me a disk with all the photos he had of me as a baby, I was super excited! I rediscovered the disk after Charlotte was born and occasionally I go through it and compare the two of us. Today, I found these gems:


I'm sure you can tell that I'm on the left and my blonde baby is on the right. Except for the different hair color and my extra chub...holy cow! {Pun not intended.} I love that we even have some of the same facial expressions. I see a lot of her daddy in her facial expressions, so this was cool! I think we're about the same ages in the pictures, but I'm not 100% certain.

Although she looks a teensy bit like Daddy in this one, you can still definitely tell she's my girl!


I love having a "mini me!" =)

It's the best, isn't it? Penny got more of Brandon's hair color and his ears, but the rest is all me!

I love comparing photos too! Mr Soldier and I have one of each, Madison is his clone and Kennedy is mine which is pretty cool : )

She is so cute! Our daughter makes all the same facials as my husband. She looked identical to him as a baby except for her bald head which she got from me. haha

This is so cute!

My mom left a photo album for me before she passed away.

In it there's a photo of her, as a baby, in a stroller. Her mom is standing beside it.

Below that photo is a photo of me, as a baby, in a stroller. She's standing beside it.

It's amazing how similar we look! Even now, there are times I look at myself in the mirror and I have to do a double take because I feel like I look just like her.

I'll post the pictures on here one day, for sure. :)

:) I love this post. My little girl, just one month young looks sooo much like my husband. I keep saying that if I didn't push her out I would have to second guess that she's mine. I do see a little bit of my brother in her, so I'm hopeful that as she gets older I'll see more of myself. I'm glad you wrote about this...now I have even more hope! It's crazy how much they can and will change!
