Like Father, Like Son


This is my favorite picture of my boys. I love this picture. I don't know what it is...maybe it is because it's real, sweet and I don't know...how many times will my son and his dad hold hands like this?


They say that boys are suppose to look like thier mommies and girls are to look like their dads ( I don't know who they are, but apparently this is what they say).


Well, I never wanted that.


When we decided to start trying for a child I knew I wanted a boy first and everyone knew my beloved wanted a boy, because he was not ashamed in telling anyone who asked.


In the end it didn't matter because we would have been thrilled either way, but there were a few specifics I did pray for.


I prayed that my child wouldn't have my nose and I specifically remember praying that he would look like his dad and be like his dad.


Boy does God answer prayers. Little one looks just like his dad. Same eyebrows, same facial expressions, same big feet...he came out and I was like, I have a mini him!


Now that he's two, not only does he look like his dad, but he acts like his father. How a two year old can be "metrosexual" is beyond me. As I've said before, the child hates to be dirty. One drop of water or food on his shirt and it comes off. Also, he does not leave the house without his hair being fixed. The other day I was in a hurry and put him in the car and he said, "Mama, hair." So I had to quickly fix his hair. And what two year old picks his own clothes! He has to have choices on his clothing and he will refuse certain shirts if that is not the one he wants.


So all in all, I have two men in my house who are very much the same and I guess that's what I asked for. I just hope that he will grow up to be as kind and smart and goofy as his father. That he will be generous, that he will be faithful in his walk with Christ and that he will love unselfishly like his father.

What a sweet post. I loved it. Especially about him being a mini-metrosexual! Too funny. One of my bloggy friends emailed me last night, "I love reading your sister's sister-in-law! She's so cute!" Keep going girl, your getting an audience. *SHRIEK*

That is just so sweet. I love pictures like that- a little person holding daddy's hand...all the while, holding their mommy's heart.
