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."

You're right...every time I've seen pictures of your girls I always think they look absolutely like the 2 of you just as you've said. This picture points it out very obviously, too. They are beautiful and precious. I pray that God will bless Savannah with that same kind of sisterly love some day! Much love.

Holy Cow!! The girls are adorable. I cannot believe how much they do resemble both you and Chris. How special! Thinking of you!

We can't wait to see you, Chris and the "clones" next weekend! My girls are thrilled about their voyage to Huntsville!
