Gah, has it really been 4 weeks since my last post? Yikes. I have a lot of blogging to do.
For starters, we'll fulfill Melissa's request for pictures of Julia and Ella at the same age, side by side. First we have Julia, back in October 2009. I suppose technically this puts Julia at 18 months while Ella is 19 months, but it turns out that in November 2009 I died (courtesy of pregnancy hormones), and only have 5 pictures. 2 of which are of a stack of waffles. It was a great month. Anyway, I'm rambling, here's the picture:
Then we have Ella from today, February 2012. It's not the best picture of her, but it'll have to do.
They do, in fact, look alike. A lot alike. There are some differences, most noticeably that Ella is thinner than Julia was (which I think I can blame on Ella's distaste for milk [among other foods]), but there is no question that they are sisters.
And whilst I was looking through old pictures, I came across this gem:
Such a sad face. I swear to you, if I didn't recognize the setting, I wouldn't be able to tell which kid this is. It's Julia, but Ella looks EXACTLY LIKE THIS when she gets upset (which is often these days - poor kid doesn't take, "No," very well).
