Growing up, I looked nothing like my sister (just look at some Flashback Friday posts). Hard news for a little blond who idolized her older sibling. I used to *hate* that people would remark how much we looked NOTHING alike, how she looked just like my Dad, and how I looked just like my Mom. She was my big sister and I wanted to be just like her!
Since I've had kids, I'm careful to label who my children look like. In fact, it's a big pet peeve of mine to alienate one parent or the other. Didn't TWO set of genes come together to make this unique little person? I always try to give credit to both parents...even if its just for one little feature.
While I don't think Asher and Maryclaire look exactly alike, I do see many similarities between them. Sometimes more and sometimes less depending on their expression. They definitely have the same little button nose. While I was looking at my pictures on the computer the other night (like I often do) I found this old one of Asher as a baby and it reminded me SO much of this picture of Maryclaire.
