Things That Are The Same

The older I get, I discover that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Here are some pictures I found of myself at around 18 months old:



Even as a baby I loved to make messes with my craft supplies.



I loved to read books.





And I loved dogs.



Here I am with my grandfather. I think John looks remarkably similar to me at this age. And even though my grandfather never lived to see the boys, looking at this picture here, I can imagine that he would have looked the same holding John.




Here's a recent picture of the boys for comparison. I think as a mother, there is no greater joy than seeing your children reflected back at you.

  1. that's lovely.... and yes, it's nice to see a bit of yourself in them - espeically when, after they were born in my case, everyone - and i mean EVERYONE - commented about how both girls looked the image of their father as if I had had nothing to do with them! Lovely pics..

  2. the resemblance is unmistakable

    i love posting pics of c on fb so my cousin can show them to my aunt and then i get comments like 'mama says she looks just like your mom at the same age!'

    i know i'm in there around the edges, but she looks an awful lot like honey...minus the permanent 5 o'clock shadow...
