On Saturday we visited with Phillygirl, and she asked me if I’ve ever compared photos of myself as a child with photos of Nicola to see how similar we look. Well, I haven’t reaaally done it – but I do sort of know that we look very similar.
So I thought, why the hell not? This is that post…bumper photo edition brace yourselves! (don’t panic, I compressed them all). Sorry about the quality of some of them, photos of photos tend to do that. And also, there aren’t NEARLY as many photos of me as a child as there is of Nicola, seeing as I was small way before digital cameras were a common thing obviously (also I highly doubt if there is any child anywhere who has had their photo taken as much as my pink terrorist has). 😉
This is me at 4 days old
This is Nicola, one day old
My grandmother and I. This was on my Christening day – probably about 4 months old or so
Same day, with my mom
Nicola with my mom at about the same age
Nicola with my dad
Nicola with me
That’s me crawling, round about 6 months old
Nicola at about the same age
Nicola, getting the hang of the standing up bit a few months later
My dad and I
Nicola and I, not the same age as the photo of me and my dad…but it feels like a similar photo.
Me, picking flowers
Nicola, picking flowers.
Obviously I was a very friendly child. 😉
And so is Nicola!
Laughing right from her belly
Me with my Ouma and Oupa on my dad’s side of the family
Nicola with my parents
Another one of Nicola with my parents
Probably the last time I could pull off a bikini
Nicola at Ballito
Nicola with Oom Riaan
Me, on horse back
Nicola, on a bouncy ball
We obviously both love animals
Nicola with Philly’s bunnie
An angelic version of me 😉
A fairy version of Nicola
I have always loved Christmas
Nicola wasn’t too impressed with her first encounter of Santa
These are very odd socks
She loves the tree bit though!
My baby borther and I, more or less the age Nicola is at now
We obviously don’t have a baby brother, but we do have Mieka
My cousins will get a kick out of this one. Nicola, climbing a tree with a ladder – I was known to climb them with chairs (no photos of that though).
So yes, I guess we are very similar – but we’re also very different, exactly the way it should be because she’s her own little person even though we share a strong resemblance. 😉
Ps! These really look much better in a slide show…
