Everybody keeps saying Fiona looks just like Eamon. And I supposed it was true. The picture below is one I’ve had pinned to my art cabinet of my son as a newborn. I took a picture of the picture (it has a scratch on it) and one of my daughter in the carrier sleeping on my chest.

And the results are in. You all are right. She looks eerily like him at that age. Except she’s got a girl nose.

Many of you ask how’s Eamon doing with the addition of a sister? Well, he never outright said for us to take her back. But he did ask me whether I liked the cat or the baby better. Because he liked the cat better. He is really great at bouncing her in the bouncy chair. And he likes to hold her when she’s not crying. Other than that, he never looks at her.

  1. daddy looks way hotter now than he ever did then, tell him to keep the short hair!

    Both babies too cute, but I can’t tell… they look sort of alike, or else they look like a mixture of you and Mark but in their masculine/feminine ways. Does that even make sense?

    1. I agree to both of these statements. Long hair made him look older. And they look like “Us”. My favorite pictures are of my family sleeping.

  2. Spitting image! I did this too @ around the same age of my two, side-by-side in the Bumbo. Genetics are so neat – you get to see your love expressed in masculine & feminine form!
