Friday Photos

I got an email a few weeks back asking why I didn’t have a single picture of myself on my website. I thought about it… and had no idea why. Luckily, when I went home for Christmas, my mother sent me home with pictures. Lots and lots of pictures.

I’ve looked at my baby pictures every day… studying them, then staring at my daughter, looking to find some part of me in her.

I think every parent does this…. right?!

This started my obsession with all the pictures we have in our house. After organizing practically every photo, I wanted to share them with WB readers… not that you were asking for any 🙂 Luckily I didn’t have any room in my suitcase for the awkward Junior High – High School years… (my mom said she’d mail them, lucky me).

Here are some younger pics and a couple of my favorites of me and my husband.



This is me and my dad. Can you tell I was born in the late 70’s?


I think I’m about 1 1/2 years old here. My mom said she still has that dress!


Yes. My mother put me in a pageant. I remember this day quite well. I was five years old, and my costume was Shirley Temple. As I was walking up the steps I fell and broke my lollipop 🙁 I was not a happy camper… you can tell from the photo!

My husband and I on our special day…. gotta love a man in uniform!

An finally the comparison…

Me, my daughter, my husband…

Question of the day?

Who do you think she looks like? I think she’s a mixture of both of us… but mostly my husband.

Have a great weekend

    Estela – oh my goodness! That first picture of you as a baby looks just like your daughter! So cute!

    Aw, those are gorgeous pictures!

    I think your cutie looks like a mix of both… your eyes and the hubby from the nose down. She is ADORABLE!

    You’re SO beautiful!!! And you were such a cutie in the baby/toddler photos! I hope I look half as pretty as you did on my wedding day!!

    Great pictures! Very sweet. I look at my kids all the time to see who they look like. The oldest looks exactly like his dad did…at the same age. The youngest one looks more like my side. Weird how that happens. My kids look totally different! As for your little one, I think she looks more like you in the picture, but pictures are tricky. Sometimes different expressions look like the other parent. She is a super cutie though!

    Looking at baby pictures can remind you how strong you are…how innocently gorgeous. I just found your blog and am very thankful. Would you be interested in helping me sponsor a TEA Party? Bloggers would send three tea bags to another, and open up on Valentines Day….YOu in?

    Nice to “see” you! You are as beautiful as that little girl of yours. I have a VERY similar picture of myself at a similar age as you in the little red dress. Yes, complete 70’s!

    Oh wow!! These are such fantastic photos. I wish I could upload my old photos form when I was a kid. How the heck do you do that?!

    Your wedding picture is awesome. You look amazing. And, I say your daughter looks like both of you, but slightly more like your hubby. They have the same nose!!

    You’re beautiful : ) Your daughter definitely looks more like you, and I’m not just saying that!

    wonderful pix – your daughter looks like you more, but definitely also like her daddy too!

    Your daughter has got your cute, adorable image: the cheeks, maybe the mouth, and I’ll bet the smile…
    Meanwhile, she has your husband’s eyes and nose. So beautiful!

    You are a beauty, my dear!

    How cute! She does look a lot like your hubby, but I can see you in her as well. My girl looks like her dad too.
