I laughed out loud when I saw this picture. This is totally me. I was never aware that I made such a face, but I’ve seen myself captured in other people’s pictures with this exact same look on my face too many times to count. It’s cute on Ellie. On me? Not so much. 🙂 But it is absolutely amazing to see parts of myself reflected back at me from my little girl. I love being a Mom.
Isn’t she gorgeous? I love this next one of Ellie so much! I’m having this printed large and hung in our master bedroom.
So a couple of friends have commented that Akira and Jeff kind of look alike. I think it’s the eyes or something, but I’m not really sure because I don’t see it. But I think it’s absolutely hilarious that two different people have made this observation.
Ellie is a total girlie girl. She gets upset when I put pants on her. Nothing but a dress will do these days. Thankfully, the weather has been warmer and she can wear dresses everyday if she wants to. This one is from Old Navy. The hairband was made by my girlfriend Sue and the shoes are tiny TOMS.
Lately Ellie’s been obsessed with Justin Bieber’s “Baby” song and demands that it be played on repeat in Jeff’s car. She’s constantly asking it to be turned up loud saying, “More sound! Louder!” If we try to play some other song she’ll say, “No! Mas Bieber! Bieber, Daddy!”
Poor Jeff. 🙂
Anyways, I’m catching up on emails. I had to go out of town for a few days for my Uncle’s funeral. 🙁 I hope to do a post about him soon. He was an amazing man and such a great Uncle to me and my brother. We love you and miss you Uncle Charlie.
