Baby Rachel, Baby Ruby

We got a Valentine's box in the mail from my mom yesterday that had presents for everyone! There was a little box with these red shoes in it and I said, "Look! Red shoes for Ruby! And they're vintage!" Then I saw the note that said they used to be mine. EVEN BETTER!

She also sent one of my old baby dresses that I put on Ruby this morning to see if it fit and to get some fun pictures. Thanks, Mom!

Rachel Denbow (Gentry) circa. 1981

Ruby Denbow circa. 2010

What do you think? See any resemblance?

That's awesome to have a daughter that looks like you.

We have a picture of my husband (as a baby)and son wearing the same sleeper laying on the same quilt. It sure makes the resemblances stand out.

Allyson said...

Caitlin said...

Wow, that is just the neatest thing ever! You two look very much alike. I love love love the red shoes. You should frame the picture of you and Ruby wearing the dress side by side. How sweet would that be?!

Theres a Oshkosh overall tradition in my family. Every baby in my family (cousins etc.) has taken a portrait in the same overalls at the same age for the past 34 years! Its really neat to look at all the pics!

My gosh Ruby looks so much like you as a baby.
How gorgoeous is your Mum for keeping and sending your old baby gear to you. I know I'm going to be like that. I have 3 kids and have kept their baby clothes, up to size 1 and am planning to make memory quilts out of them and keep some of the special ones to give them when they have children.

You guys look super alike, but I think she might be a tad bit cuter. Either that or pictures have just gotten a lot better. ;D

Just read the back of the photo and I was six weeks old so I must've been an early smiler! Neither of mine were smiling that big that early.
