can we just talk about how much my kid looks like mini me?

when stella was born people would go on and on (and on) how how she was a exact copy of tim, i totally saw it too. there is one picture at the hospital where he is holding her and it is frightening how similar they looked. as she got older i was confused who she looked for like - the easy answer was me because of her dark curly hair and dark brown eyes (thank god one of them finally got my curls!) but i wasn't convinced i could see it in her face. she without a doubt has tim's nose (again, thank god) but didn't look as much like him as she used to.
then the other day my aunt handed me a stack of old photos i had never seen and i about lost it - there it was, stella in all her 80's glorious-ness. not only all that jazz, but i was really excited about the photo of me and my grandpa, i am pretty sure it is the only one of us together left in existence that i have my hands on. it means extra to me now that he had passed a few years back and i think neither stella or rowan ever got the chance to meet him. my dad looks JUST like him though, in fact when we were all a little younger my little cousins would accidentally mistake him for grandpa, ha!
alas, i could not find the perfect photo for comparisson but these will do:

and then, meeeee!
you see it, right? i especially apologize for making you look at this last photo, not really sure what is going on here.

I've always thought she looked just like Tim (and she still does), but now after seeing these photos... she's definitely your little look-a-like!

i think it is def the hair/eyes that makes us look the most similar no matter what. i should try and find pics of tim for that comparison too ;)
