who does she look like?

Yesterday, I saw a baby Olivia's age. She was ADORABLE! I couldn't help but stare and wonder if Olivia would have had hair like Brinley's, that her feet would have been too chubby for shoes, that she might be teething... I started to get a little teary eyed and Brinley asked me why sometimes I get sad. This was the first time I had looked at a baby and wondered about what Olivia might be like at that moment. I think it was because this cute little baby looked so much like Brinley did when she was that age.
and on to other things...
I have had a fun time going through pictures on my mom's computer. I found so many pictures of Brinley as a baby, but who does she look like...


Matt...

or me?

oh, and just because I love this hairdo soooo much, I thought you might enjoy it too.
My nickname was poodle. Now why in the world would i do this to myself and what is up with those glasses? Do my eyebrows need to see too?

I think that Brinley is a great mix of the two of you.

That poodle hair is awesome!!! I don'tthink my hair was that big, but I did have red Sally Jesse Raphael glasses. I know, it's OK to be envious!

Ever since my mom had a miscarriage with her last baby, I have done the same thing. There is a little girl I know that would have been the same age, and I always wonder what it would have been like to have another sister/brother. Brinley was such a beautiful baby. Her eyes are so big and she has such great eyelashes. By the way, I love the hair. So poofy.

Other than the eyes, which I think are yours, I think Brinley looks a lot like Matt, but you two have such similar features, it's so hard to tell! She is gorgeous, no matter which way you choose.

Why oh Why did our parents let us go out of the house looking the way we did in the 80's/early 90's...So sad the way all of our hair, glasses, mis-matched clothes etc looked back then! I think if anyone else has "interested" pictures of them back then we should all post them....just to have a good laugh! :)

I do think she looks alot like her daddy, but really a good mix. You are hilarious. Don't feel bad, we all looked that way so we must have just been used to it. So funny.

Brinley is so beautiful. I don't think I have ever since a picture of her where she doesn't look gorgeous. She is going to be a heart breaker. I would have to say I see more of her mom in her than her dad.

As for the wonderful picture of poodle girl. I think you should definitely do your hair like that again! :-)

That is a fantastic picture! You must have really worked a long time to get your bangs that big! I think Brinley looks most like you. Hopefully you can keep her away from the poodle hair though! I had glasses just like that only they were pin on bottom and blue on top. I got them in fifth grade and I thought they were great because it was like I was wearing makeup!

I think she looks more like you...the unpoodle version of course. Awesome hair :)

I think that she looks like a good mix. I can see both of you in her. I think that you and matt look a lot alike too. A lot of similarities in all three shots. But if I had to pick one that I think she looks more like I would say you. Same shape of face and eyes. I love the poodle hair too. I think we all have at least one shot like that where we think what in the world was I trying to do there??

She is a perfect mix of you both.
so your in the poodle club, too. Check out my old pictures...

Are all your friends crazy? Brinley is a miniature Matt! I've thought that since the second I laid eyes on her, and thought it again three post's ago when I looked at your "movie in the park" pic's.

Well Poodle, I have to say, that I truly love this blog of yours. I am guaranteed a good laugh, or a good cry, and sometimes both in the same post- thanks for sharing!!!

I think Brinley looks like you when you were a baby but without the picture, I still think in person she is such a Matts child like Mary said. Ok and I almost wet my pants over your poodle picture. I too was called poodle after my VERY last perm in the 8th grade but by then I had contacts instead of my glasses. Too funny!! I am with Mary. I am either bawling like a baby or laughing so hard I just about cry.
