Mini Me

I remember the first time Brandon realized that Aubrey’s hands resembled his. He held her little fist close to his face and gasped in awe. He looked at me wide eyed and said, “That’s a miniature version of my thumb!!”

People are quick to pick up on the resemblance between Aubrey and I. The red hair is obvious but they pick out similar facial features as well. However the features she gets from Brandon tend to stand out when people see her with him.

She looks so much like both of us, and yet she looks entirely unique and like no one but Aubrey. I never would have guessed that we could create something so beautiful together. If you were to Photoshop features of Brandon’s onto my face or vice versa I could guarantee the result would be freakish, and yet here is a living version of that very idea and she is a beautiful little girl.

People always compare children to their parents, both in physical features as well as temperament and abilities, but no matter how similar they may seem, they are unique individuals. While I love seeing Brandon and myself in our new little “Mini Me”, I am so proud of the person she is on her own.

    I’ve thought these same things, so many times when I look at Skyler! It’s like she likes like either of us or both, but then she is this unique new person with her own look. No one else like her! And same with personality. I thought I would look at her and think of her as a “little me” or “little Ronnie”, but no, I only see her as just a “little Skyler”!
