Honor has made it to the magic month. From now on, she’s closer to being 2 than she is to being 1. Pretty soon, I’ll have to start saying she’s “almost two.” Ugh.
Honor’s already a little drama queen. I have no idea what that means for us as she gets closer to being 2. Actually, I do. Trouble. It means trouble.
But it’s cute trouble.
(Aunt Trump sent some of her home-grown honey, and included a LOT of bubble wrap. The kids were more excited about the bubble wrap than the honey!)
I know that Honor looks a lot like me, but sometimes it’s hard for me to see. Before the move, I dug around in a box and found a few old pictures and couldn’t believe how much we do look alike. I definitely see her Daddy’s features in there too, but there’s no doubt that she’s my girl.
These first two pictures are when I was about Honor’s age – 18 months or so. I would apologize for my parents’ fashion choices, but I think you know that the late 70’s/early 80’s were not kind…to anyone. Apparently Mom & Dad were planning on me being a sailor. Sorry to disappoint.
That face I’m making? Very similar to one that someone else made for our recent family photos. Go ahead. I know you’re thinking it. I’m payin’ for my raisin’, as they say.
And here’s one of the few times in my life I wore a frilly dress. Bless Mom’s heart, she tried. I’m just not a dress girl.
My hair was light, like Honor’s is now. It darkened on its own, so it makes me wonder if Honor’s will too.
By the time I was five, my hair was dark. And in some sort of feathery, short hair style. This smile? Caedmon’s.
And this little baldy I’m holding? It’s Curly. Yeah. She was a late bloomer when it came to the hair, but she made up for it. I think it’s also interesting to note that Cousin E looks just like her Momma.
I took this picture while the movers were loading. My hair wasn’t fixed and makeup was not even a thought in my mind. But it’s the only recent shot I have of the two of us. I suppose we look like we belong to each other.
These two have my heart. I’m so thankful God entrusted us with them.
