just me & my girl... the old and the new...

I found this picture of me (on the left) yesterday while looking for a picture for Mini's birthday post. It struck me that I'd taken a similar picture of Mini when she was about that age, so I went looking and found it! That's her on the right.
My picture was taken in the hot/dry season of the Philippines, and hers was in the cool Fall season of Canada.

Mini has such beautiful sleek shiny hair and pretty rosy cheeks, while I look like Don King's long lost lovechild.

No doubt about it - when it comes to cuteness, I don't come anywhere close to my daughter.


  1. Look at those cheeks!! Too cute! :D

    okay, as my cousin, you are allowed to mock my baby-spaced-out look, especially since you *are* coming to visit!
    my physiotherapist has threatened me with bodily harm if I do yoga right now (rather counterproductive, eh?), so I'm voting for sushi and iced green tea lemonade... yummmy!!! can't wait to see ya :) xoxo

  6. that's cool that you found an old baby pic of yourself to compare with your own child. yes, luv the hair. :)

    great pics!
