just because....

My sister-in-law left a comment to my last post, after seeing pictures of my kids, about how much they all look like my husband, Josiah. Because she grew up with him, she remembers what he looked like as a tot and what not, so she can see it. I generally hear..."Camden and Alyssa look like your husband but Rylie and Trenton look just like you!" I always assume it's said because of their hair color.

Anyway, after she made the comment the other day, it reminded me of this picture that I had seen not too long ago, from when Josiah was probably 2-ish? (anyone know for sure his age? i was going off the other siblings in the pic, mostly)

For those who don't know, he's the one dressed as the black cat. When I saw this picture, all I could see was how much our youngest son, Trenton, resembles him...


This is Trenton 2 Halloweens ago. It's not an identical match to Josiah in the pic above, but when you take the smile from Trenton in the next pic...

Nooowwww you get where I'm coming from! Anyway... yes, Jenna... genetics ARE amazing. What's even more amazing, are the times that I look at my children and see how much they resemble others from the Van Sciver side...

Oh, sniffle!!!! That would have been Halloween of 1978. I think. Jenna the ballerina was 5 1/2, Josiah the black cat was 2 1/2, Amanda the baby tiger (all of them were the baby tiger for their first Halloween) was 10 months, and Ethan the skeleton was 4.

I'm kinda proud to say that I made every costume in both pictures except for the tutu, which Jen had for her dance class.

I've always always thought Rylie was your twin..and that the other 3 are just so Josiah/VanSciver. I was sure you were tired of hearing it though just as I'm tired of hearing everyone out in public say "looks like you've got your hands full!!" (why yes..yes I do.). They're all insanely adorable regardless of who they look like more.

Look at how "gee" mom is! Hahaha.. I LOVE IT!

I do think Alyssa and Camden look more like Josiah, but I see tons of Josiah in Rylie and Trenton too. I remember this Halloween! I got to wear blush! Big deal when you're 5. I'm glad you have this!
