What do you see?

I took the kids to Target today and while we were paying for a cart full of unnecessary purchases the "payer lady", as Collin calls her, just keeps going on and on and on and on about "how much the kids look alike". Collin kept asking "what does she keep talking about mommy" as I tried to explain to him that the "lady thinks you and Madelyn look like each other". He looked at me like I was out of my mind, because of course he does not see the you???

People always comment on how much our kids look alike. When I look at them I see two sweet souls that are so different in so many ways. They are each fearfully and wonderfully made by God, and He has made them each so unique.
But the one thing that is EXACTLY the same about these two, is the way that they melt my mommy heart when they smile...and they most certainly have caused my love cup to overflow!


  1. too sweet! i love that you compared them at exactly the same age... i thought about trying that as i was reading and then it dawned on me... what would i be proving? that theylook NOTHING alike and that poor sweet little Cora looks even less like she belongs to me since i went back to brunette... actually, that sounds kind-of funny, maybe i will...

  3. oops, I removed it because the heart didn't work... here we go again. Well, there is no denying they are siblings but when you know and love them for as individuals, you see them for who they are - precious babes, to be certain, and loved by all who know them!
