When someone meets our little family they usually tell us
how much Avery looks like Brandon. 
They love to point out that they have the same cheeks and face shape. 
This doesn't bother me.
I think Brandon was a very cute baby so I take it as a compliment.
To be honest most days I look at her at the think the same thing. 
I completely recognize that if it weren't for the blonde hair and blue eyes
it would probably look like I wasn't involved in the process at all.

But every once in a while she'll make a face and i'll see a little of me in there.
Its usually when she's being silly or doing something she knows she shouldn't do.
But nevertheless it happens. 

Today was one of those days where I caught the tiniest glimpse of myself in my sweet girl.
Those moments are few a far between,
 but when they happen I can't help but wonder what other traits will she have of mine?
Will she have small hands and feet?
Will she love to dance and sing?
Will she have a loud slightly annoying laugh?

Each day I feel like I learn something new about her.
Things she likes and doesn't like.
Its kinda like we're still getting to know one another.
