Look Alikes

I get so tickled at the comments on Kelly's blog that say Harper looks so much like me.  Especially right after she post a picture of us together.  Some also say she looks like Scott's Mom when she is holding Harper.

For the record, I think Harper looks so much like Scott that he could never deny her. (Not that he would!)

BUT, when Harper smiles, she looks just like Kelly did when she was a baby.

Kelly's grandmother send us a big package today in the mail.  She has been cleaning and sorting out all her things since she moved.  She sent us several old scrapbooks of pictures.  They are wonderful!  One of the scrapbooks is full of my hubs' baby pictures!  I just am in heaven to have these.  I hope to make copies and give to each of our children and hopefully they will pass them on to their children.

People my age don't have many pictures of their grandparents when they were babies.  They were rare!


Anyway, I got many pictures of my two children that Grandma had in her scrapbooks over the past 35 years.  I just wanted to share a couple of Kelly to see if you think Harper favors her Mama just a little.

Also, a surprise picture at the end.........














Guess who this baby is?

WOW! I do think Harper looks like you, but she looks like Kelly too!! I love it!! I don't know about the baby at the end.... is it you?

Faith said...

How cute! Yes, Harper does look like her momma. Love the pics...and, I think the last one is you!

Linda said...

I think Kelly still looks like her baby pictures...I mean I could tell those were her baby pictures. And I could see a little of Harper when I looked at them too.

Is that a baby picture of you at the end? Cute!

Oh wow, Harper looks just like Kelly in the picture of you holding her. So sweet :)

How sweet- she does favor Kelly!

My youngest favors my mom. When it came time to begin some "training," it was the weirdest thing in the world to take care of the issue at hand!

Laurie said...

I love these pictures! I think Harper looks a lot like Kelly did right now.

Lori said...

Oh that grin of baby Kelly's is definately coming out in Harper. Too similar.

I love your old pictures. I think that last picture must be you as a baby. So adorable!! Thanks for sharing. Love & blessings from NC!

Is that last picture Nonny?

Harper looks JUST LIKE Kelly to me!

Heather said...

I see Scott in Harper, but DEFINITELY Kelly, too!

Kathy said...

I've always seen a lot of Kelly in Harper. Can't believe you got the pictures so fast! I mailed them Friday morning and thought they would be on a slow truck. I meant to email ya'll that they were coming and got side tracked. Have fun.

MochaMama said...

I was going to comment and tell you yesterday that Harper looks SO SO much like you! Especially in the pictures where are you are holding her and it's just the two of you! Same smile! So pretty!

Kelley said...

I think Harper looks like both you and Kelly. I have often thought she looked like her Uncle Chris too. She is a little doll and lights up a room when she smiles. Is that baby picture you? I think it is.

Julie said...

It seems that several of us readers all had the same thought when we saw the picture of you and Harper . . . I immediately thought she looked just like you! She does have some of her momma's features too, but you certainly can't deny she is your grand baby.

Love all of the pictures. The last one must be you . . . but it resembles Harper when she was wee little.

Melissa's Thoughts said...

With such beautiful ladies in her life, Harper is destined for beauty inside and out.

rsiewert said...

The first picture looks just like Harper!

Tracy said...

So Sweet. Harper definetley looks like her momma.

Patty said...

The picture of Kelly in the stroller looks just Harper when she smiles and crinkles her nose! Precious memories! Thanks for sharing!

Patty said...

Harper really looks like Kelly and Kelly looks like you and so the three of you look alike. lol

Who is the baby? Kelly?

Patty said...

To add: Is that picture of you? I wrote Kelly on my 1st comment but meant you. ;)

run26.2mom said...

Harper looks like her mommy too! How fun to compare.
My daughters look like my husband, especially the little one. She is his clone! So I always hae to say...they may look like their dada but who do they act like? It better me. :)
Peace.

Lynn D said...

I think Harper looks like you!

Nancy said...

Those pictures are so neat! I think Kelly looks like Harper in these pic's! Or should I say it the other way around!? :)
Isn't it fun to look back @ old pictures!?

bobspixie said...

The resemblance is remarkable. Now I know where Kelly gets her love of "hair bows". I had to laugh when I saw that almost every one of her baby pictures had a hair bow--just like Harper!!!

Marie said...

Harper looks like you and Kelly, she is a doll, Got a question, why can I see your comments but when I go to see Kellys all I get is this 'blog comments powered by Disqus and then just links, any help, I am too old for this computer stuff I think
email is silverladee2000@yahoo.com

amy (metz) walker said...

I'm guessing the last one is you...and, yes, Harper does really look a lot like Kelly!

Donna said...

Miss Harper is a "Mini Me" for Kelly right now. So cute. The old pictures of Kelly definately look like Harper. Both so beautiful. But there is some Scott in there, too. A mix of the best of both of them.

kimberly t. bowling said...

That first picture is amazing....Kelly looks like HER mama, and Harper certainly favors HER mama as well!! :) Seriously, that twinkle in your eyes and big smile is exactly like Kelly!! Fun to see these pics!!

Karen said...

Beautiful! I love that you when you look at Harper you can see in her the people who love her most! In the first picture of you holding Kelly, I REALLY could see Harper...with darker hair! Have a wonderful week....my favorite of the year!
