Eeny-Meeny-Miney-Solomon


I thought it would be a fun comparison to show a baby pic of the boys. I'm sure you can tell the middle picture is Mark. (His mom hinted to me that he was not the cutest baby, but I just love that photo. His little features and head of hair are ridiculous!) Mark was a small baby at birth, weighing in under six pounds. And the photo doesn't show it, but he had distinct red hair.

Owen is the baby on the right. He weighed 8 lbs 4 oz at birth and was 21.5 inches long. He was also 9 days overdue! His hair does not show well in this picture, but he had a substantial amount of medium blonde.

Gavin is on the left. Of course he weighed 8 lbs 8 oz and was 19 inches long. He was also born a day BEFORE his due date. It was a good thing my doctor suggested inducing me early. I can't imagine how much longer he would have hung out in there and how much more he would have weighed! He has more hair than Owen did and it is a slight red/brown color.

When I first saw Gavin it felt a little like deja vu. I couldn't stop thinking about how much he looked like Owen at birth. And although there is a clear resemblance, they each have their own distinct look. I can't wait to see how their personalities compare!

Ohmigosh, look at Mark! It's just like him! Wee beedy eyes, and the fauxhawk! :) I love it.

Gavin really does have his own look now, but he's a definite mix of both!

Ha! Kimba, you are spot on about Marky Mark. He hasn't changed much...

Lucky for Owen and Gavin that they have some of their mom in them! Cuties...sorry Mark.

Oh Bridge, they are so so cute! I cannot believe that you have another baby, just as cute as the first one! I hope you are adjusting well. I am sure you are!

I can't wait, either! I can't get over how much they all look alike. I've never seen a baby photo of Mark, I don't think, but the resemblance is 'ucanny', as they say.

Gavin looks like an old soul! What neat comparisons. Can't wait to see him in person :)
