Like Mother Like Daughter---WW

When my Grandmother passed, we were all asked what we would like to remember her by. I begged for this footstool. I asked for it over and over and over again. I really wanted it. Ben thought I was a lunatic. He kept saying, it's just a footstool. Well, not to me. To me, that one footstool was a constant in my life. I never realized how old it was until we found these pictures. Yes, that's me at about 8 months on the stool that now sits in my living room. And that's Brinna, doing the same thing on the same stool. Now he understands why I wanted it so bad.

I also have to add that I never realized how much Brinna looks like me till I saw these pictures side by side. It makes me happy since Adelae definitely favors her Daddy.

I'm never completely wordless, but lots of others are! Go see what they're wordless about this week at 5 Minutes for Mom.
