Cindy Lou Who?

In the past two years, Casey and I have both been told the same thing by different people about our oldest child. “She looks just like Cindy Lou Who!” I remember seeing a picture of CLW, but not since Ruby had been born, so Casey did a search on her to see what exactly people saw that made them think they looked alike.

So I’m guessing it's the blonde hair and the eyes. But mostly the eyes.

Last week, while in line at Dion’s (a local pizza restaurant), a customer next to me commented: “That girl’s eyes are bigger than her face.” When she found out Ruby was mine, she was apologetic, but I just thought it was funny (especially the fact that she was so embarrassed). I told her about the CLW comment we usually get, and she agreed.

Your daughters are beautiful and their eyes are their mommy's which means they are likely to be the most wonderful of people, full of creativity and fun!

Omigoodness, the things people say! Ellie has had a stomach virus and we were in Wal-Mart the other night and she wasn't feeling well so I was carrying her for a bit. This older lady looked at me(I'm sure she was noticing Ellie's size and my pregnant belly) and said "She is plenty old to be walking!". And it was definitely meant for me to here. My flesh came out and I quickly told her that she had a stomach virus. Which she probably thought even worse of me for having her out. By the way, your e-mail was hilarious! I forwarded it to my mom and sister.
