Mini Me

December 15, 2011

It’s the Chief’s birthday today.

Sometimes I feel like there are two Chiefs in the house.

You see, Monkey is really just a tiny Chief. It’s a little eerie actually.

Baby Chief and Baby Monkey

A while back I started making a list of all their likenesses. Then I added Bruiser on there too, comparing him to myself. Yep, if I were a boy, I would be Bruiser.

It’s pretty cool to see a little reflection of yourself in your kids. (And a little scary too!)

Happy Birthday, Chief. Thanks for passing on some of your best qualities to your kids. Now there’s a gift that keeps on giving!
