Lucky Number 7

Erik turned 7 months the other day. I thought it would be a good time to actually go through all our pictures and find one of Taylor at the same age. So here is Erik at 7 months:
On the other hand, here is Taylor. Now that I'm a little more objective, I see things a little differently. First of all, he had some funky hair and a big o' honkin' melon on his shoulders. And just look at those arm rolls! It's funny- Erik still weighs as much as Taylor did when he was that age. I guess they just carry it differently. And of course, Taylor has his bottom lip sticking out:
My mom swears that Erik looks exactly like me when I was a baby. Looking back at my baby pictures, I hope she's wrong because I wasn't a looker. So I either just can't see how cute I was or Erik really isn't as cute as I so un-objectively think he is. But some people say that Erik looks exactly like Kent. It was the same way with Taylor- half the people say he looks exactly like me, and the other half say he looks like Kent... which is funny, because we look nothing alike. Here are some pics of me as a baby. If you cross your eyes and squint, I'll look better.
If you look at this picture, I think Taylor looks more like my brother than me.

And here are some of Kent. If you ask me, I think both of the boys look more like him. What do you think?

I always thought Erik favored you more than Taylor did, but looking at those pictures of Kent as a baby, they both look like him! On the other hand, Josh pointed out that Taylor has your smile. Compare your lawn mowing picture with the one of Taylor just below it. Blue Notes smiles, anyone?

Sooo cute! I love to see pictures of the parents and compare them to the kids. Anyways, Steph you look just like yourself when you were a baby! Duh right?! No really, if I had seen a hundred baby pictures and didn't know yours would be in there, I would have immediately picked it out and said "That's Stephanie!" Yeah, I though Erik looked more like you with the dark hair and all, but now I think they both favor Kent more. So cute.

I think in the picture of you and your brother, Taylor looks just like you, lower lip out and all. Taylor was really funny with that hair sticking out every which way.

Kimberly said...

Ok, last one from me, for real. Taylor looks so much like your brother. It's like the same face!

Oh my gosh! That first one of Kent...I would have thought that was Taylor! I can definitely see Erik in the first pic of you though!

My first thought when I saw the photo of Erik is that he looks like you! I hope you're doing well
