My Mini-Me

Most of the time I think LL looks exactly like her Daddy.  I do see bits and pieces of myself that peek through every once and a while.  The thing that I see myself most in?  Her personality!  As a baby, she had her Daddy's personality completely (laid back, never cried, go with the flow, EASY).  As a toddler, it has completely swapped to my personality (head strong, opinionated, stubborn, strong-willed).  While these personality traits are often tougher to parent to, I also don't think that they're necessarily "bad" to have.  They just require a differed parenting skill set to deal with them.  It also means that we have just learned that we have to pick our battles with her.  Want to carry your bow instead of wear it?  Okay.  Refusing to put on clothes because you "no like it"?  Not okay. 

I said all that to say this: I can really see myself in her lately!  I wanted to take a picture of her Sunday in her new church dress, but she wasn't too thrilled with that idea (SHOCKER!), so I tried taking the pictures with her to see if she would cooperate.  She did, and it actually turned out pretty funny.  It for sure shows that she is my mini-me!
