A few weeks ago my uncle sent me some photos taken when I was a baby, saying I might get a kick out of them. The first thing I thought was, “Oh my god, Alexa and I look like twins!” See for yourself:
Wait, there’s more:
It’s amazing to see resemblance in my child because every time I look at her, I see Alexa. Sometimes I see H, but I never really see myself. Perfect strangers are always commenting that we look alike (even down to our haircut). H says we make a lot of the same facial expressions. But I never really noticed it until I saw these photos.
A side note: Notice my mom’s fingernails? They are real. I KNOW. I did not inherit her talons; mine are always trimmed super short because they are fragile and break easily.
