My Mini-Me is...

A lot of people have said to Joe or me over the course of the years, "Wow, (insert child's name) looks just like you!"

Here is a picture of me when I was about two-years-old.

And here are a picture of all three older kids at around two-years-old.

Madeleine, December 2002:

Hank, December 2004:

Elisabeth, October 2007:

I don't think any of the kids look just like either of us. The closest contender, in my opinion, for my mini-me is Elisabeth, but Hank's face isn't too far off. Madeleine looks the least like me, I think.

What do you all think?

I think Elisabeth looks the most like you, but Madeleine is the most like you personality-wise. I can never decide about Hank, I always think he looks and acts the most like Joe, but maybe that is because he is the only boy?

From my neutral perspective, they all look like you! Aided by the hair, sure, but it's also in the shape of the smile and the way they look out at the world!
(And that's high praise, BTW).

I agree with Cloence.

Look at Madeleine in the pic with Hank. I think she looks like you in that pic. I love your pose and are we showing a little leg?

Interesting to hear the different perspectives. It's hard to be objective about your own kids.

You are too kind, Nina!

Oh, Tammy, I've been a show-off from a young age. ;)

I can clearly see your mother's face in your 2-yr old picture. I don't see that in any of the children. But of course the red hair makes them all SEEM to look just like you! On the other hand, mannerisms count for a lot. I haven't seen any of you recently enough to be able to judge that (hint hint - time for a get-together!).
