45 Years Apart

Two Years and One Month Old

I’ve seen people do this before – put their child’s baby picture next to theirs to see how much alike they are. Here’s mine and my daughter’s, exactly at age 2 and one month. I see the resemblance, although the closer I look, the less I see it. In the first place, I don’t really think she looks like me, even though the general consensus seems to suggest that she does.

In any case, I’m thankful and blessed to have this little girl in my life. She is so smart, so affectionate, so good-natured, so mellow, so playful, not to mention so girlie and sassy at times. I don’t think I was ever that extroverted when I was her age. My hope is to give her everything I never had. May the Lord grant me strength and wisdom to parent her in the best way I know how.
