Friday's Shoebox

I've been meaning to write this post for a few Fridays.  Now is my chance.

This is my newest grand-daughter who has grown some since this was taken in December.  But here photo she is only a couple of weeks old.  One of the things that I do with babies is try to see the family faces in theirs.  What I really like about doing this is how they change and take on a resemblance to a whole different person. 

I would never in a million years have thought that Lexi bore any  similarity to this woman until I saw the photo of her in the Christmas photo.  It has haunted me and goaded me into looking up the photo that I was remembering.  I thought maybe I was imagining the way she seems to look like her paternal great-great-grandmother.  It could just be a trick of the expression or the angle of the camera lens.  But I don't want to think so.  It intrigues me and I wonder what other characteristics they might share.

Oh, that is so wonderful!

Looks like a very strong resemblance to me. It is uncanny how a tiny baby can look like a grown man, but they can!
She's a total cutie!
