Fun with Mom

I'm loving having my mom here! We've taken a ton of pictures, but I haven't had time to post any of them. They'll be leaving for Rome in a few days though (boo! it hasn't been long enough!) and I'll be able to post pictures. And a few interesting stories. :)

And now, Mother and Daughter

My mom finally dug out and scanned some of my baby pictures for me, so here is the much requested comparison between mother and daughter. Not a whole lot of resemblance here, either, but I wasn't really expecting any. She looks too much like her dad to take after me much. I do think we have the same hairline, but I definitely had a lot more up top than she does. (The poor thing has tons of hair in the back, but almost none on the top/in the front.) What do you guys think?

And yes, before you ask, my little dress and hat were handmade. My Gramma Short crocheted them for me. I'd thought this was from my baptism, but Momma says it was my first Easter. I was about 1 1/2 or 2 months old in this picture.

Happy Mother's Day!

We didn't do anything special for Mother's Day. (As a matter of fact, Brandon forgot that his wife is now a mother, an oversight which I can assure you will not be repeated.) We still had a really good day, just being together. Bran agreed to play photographer for me, and we went out into our yard (which, remarkably, I had never done before since the landlords live on the ground floor and I've always considered it their turf) and took some pictures to commemorate my first Mother's day. I think they turned out really well, even if Elora did snooze through most of the "shoot". The poor thing, she was sleeping soundly until I got her up to put that dress on her, and she went right back to sleeping soundly as soon as I got her back into a comfy onesie and laid her back down. Brandon makes a pretty good photographer, doncha think? :)

Like Father, Like Daughter

Pretty crazy, right? She really does look just like her dad. I've asked my mom to scan and send some baby pics of me, but she hasn't had a chance to do it yet...
