Me, Chris and Our "Mini-Mes"
Chris and I don't have children. We have clones.
Ann Catherine looks just like me. Lily is a little Chris.
In fact, if I had a nickel for every time someone looked at Lily and said, "She looks just like her Daddy!" I would retire and move to the beach.
It really is bizarre. Most families have a "blend" when they have children. Not us. Even down to the color of their eyes. And their personalities.
Ann Catherine is just like me. Type A, determined, stubborn with a need to please.
Lily is Chris. She's more laid back, takes life in and just hangs out.
They couldn't be more different, just like me and Chris. That's the cool part about giving birth. You literally see yourselves in someone else. There's no doubt about it, everytime Chris and I see Ann Catherine and Lily we see "little Amy" and "little Chris."
