If you ask Annabelle where she got her curls, she will promptly say, and with a sly little grin, "Grandma!" Indeed, she did get her curls from her grandma, most certainly not from her stick-straight-haired parents. Lately, all I ever hear is how Lydia is a mini Jess and Annabelle is a mini Grandma Lichelle. I'm sure the hair has something to do with it, but it's more than that. They just look totally related. They have the same smile and nose and ears and face shape. Of course, my mom's eyes are the prettiest of blue and Belle's are chocolately brown, but in black and white, you can see the similarities like crazy.
My mom has one photo of herself as a tiny girl. And seriously. They do look alike, right? I went back and looked at photos of Belle closer to my mom's age in this photo, but she doesn't look so Christensen-y a year ago. It's just recently that she's morphed into a mini-Grandma.
My only question: perhaps a child could bear resemblance to me? The one that GAVE HER LIFE? Come on girls. Morph some more.
