Childhood

This week's Photo Hunter's theme is Childhood.





Everyone says The Pea looks just like me, but with Alfie's coloring. So just for fun, I thought I'd put up two childhood photos, side by side. The one on the left is The Pea, and the one on the right is Alfie (yes, baby boys did wear clothes like that, way back when!). The Pea obviously gets the shape of her eyes from me. But look closely, and you'll notice the shapes of their ears and faces are the same. Also, the Pea has inherited Alfie's fair skin and light eyes, but I like to think of her hair coloring as a sort of mixture of her parents' coloring: Combine Alfie's white-blonde genes and my dark brown genes, and you get Pea's golden honey-blonde hair.

I wish I had a scanned baby photo of myself as well, so that I could post a mom+dad=baby collage!

It is amazing how much alike those two pictures do look... and yes, a collage would be great. Perhaps I should try this with Nyssa's picture.

I am always comparing my children to me! It's good to see others do the same so I am not so crazy.

Comparing baby pictures is one of my favorite things. It is amazing the resemblance when you get them side by side--and even more amazing as they grow and everything changes between resemblences.

wrchili said...

That was a cool idea! Thanks for sharing! I know there are a couple pictures of me as a child and my mom as a child that look almost identical.

RobK said...

I love the sepia toned shot - very cool.
