Who me?

“Who does she look like?”  If Mickey and I had a dollar each time we have been asked that question since Lydia was born we would have a good start to her college fund.  It’s just one of those questions that seem to always spring up in any conversation that revolves around a newborn.  Of course my side of the family likes to think this little pumpkin looks like a Bagwell while Mickey’s side of the family tends to think she looks like an O’Shields.  I like to think she is the perfect mix between the two.  However, I think the O’Shields may win this time.  What do you think?

Here is a side-by-side comparison of Lydia and her Aunt Betsi.  Check out the mouth, nose, and eyes in particular.  I thought it was humorous that they even have the same facial expression! 


I can only hope and pray that Lydia will grow to be such a strong, smart, independent, thoughtful, loving, and beautiful woman as her Aunt Betsi! 


And here’s a picture of Mickey and Lydia.  Usually when Lydia is in her crib she looks more like Mickey in this pic (wide-eyed and ready to play!)  However, there have been a few times when she sleeps soundly during the day (and yes that does constitutes a photo op!)

I can only hope and pray that in the years to come Lydia will have the heart, brains, self-confidence, and determination of her daddy! 


However, I am afraid she may be going for his wit….


Happy Cinco de Mayo!!!

lydia def looks like aunt betsi!

Ally, my niece, looks exactly like me as a child! Everyone says she is a mini-suze with all the baby pictures! It will be interesting to see the more she grows if she still ends up looking like me! lol.

Hope y'all are doing well!
