Our girls really don’t look that much alike. One is fair with blonde hair and blue eyes. Another has a deeper skin tone with dark hair and brown eyes, while the other two are somewhere in between. But by looking at these pictures where they are each wearing the same clothing and the same hat (it’s the hat our oldest daughter wore home from the hospital–awwww….), it’s pretty hard to tell them apart. They are each 8 weeks old in these pictures. Our daughters are almost ten years apart from oldest to youngest, so it’s fun to compare them like this when you take away the age spread.
No matter how old your kids are, you could start this little tradition. We have various pictures of our girls in the same outfit throughout the years. Basically it started by having a nice shot of the oldest daughter, so then when her younger sisters came along and were wearing her hand-me-downs, I figured I might as well get a similar picture. Who knew I would eventually end up with four daughters and get a chance to display the pictures side-by-side like this? Everybody enjoys analyzing a new baby’s features to figure out which relative he/she most resembles… that’s half the fun of meeting the newest family member! Hope this gets you thinking about starting your own traditions with pictures! I’d love to hear about what you do!
Does your family have any special photos you routinely take?
