Before and After.

This is The Baby. (who really isn't a baby anymore. He's 4. But he's still The Baby.)

He's holding an old photo of his daddy, The Man, from a similar age.



The Baby is a little Mini Me of The Man.
When they are side by side, they stand alike, walk alike, gesture alike, look alike.

Yesterday I asked The Baby, "How do you still end up in our bed every night?!"
He said, "I walk, silly. I has feet, you know."
So I guess that explains that.

After carrying him for 10 months, giving birth naturally, nursing for a year, and pouring my blood sweat and tears into this child, the least he could do is have a little bit of my gene pool. Right?
Can't there be something, anything, that resembles his mama?

That's not asking for too much, I think.
Apparently I'm wrong though.
The Baby is the spitting image of The Man.

And it turns out that it's really not so bad after all.

Happy Weekend to you!

So when I was laying on the OR table after my emergency C-Section - sick, disoriented and tired - the nurse handed my baby girl over the my husband and exclaimed "she sure looks like you, dad!". And to this day people say...."is she yours?"

Isn't it amazing? I love to see what the gene pool comes up with. I'm lucky..I got one that looks like grandpa; one that looks like grandma and one that is my mini me in boy form.

So cloning does work, huh? He looks like such a big boy now! You should probably put bricks on his head now to stop this growing up nonsense.
