My Girl


My mom and I had fun dressing Taylor in a dress that my Grandma Hoffmann made for me 30 years ago.  Here’s Taylor above, rocking the 80’s look.  She was so adorable in the dress!  Doesn’t it look so comfy?!  Below, is little old me on my second birthday with that very same dress on!  (Will you get a look at that cake my mom made??  That’s impressive!)

I totally see a resemblance in Taylor and I here, don’t you??  I found this picture of me around 6 or 7 months old and it reminded me SO much of the picture I took of Tay at 8 months old on the beach! 


This is me on the morning of my first birthday.  I didn’t have quite the same picture pose to compare it to, but I tried.

Same hair, same eyes, and the same super-chunk figure!

I see A LOT of Taylor in these two last pics.  I was 14 months here, so very close to Taylor’s age.  I think I’ll put her in my car and try to get this same pose.  I know, I know… too much time on my hands :)

That’s MY girl!  How I love her so!

  1. So precious!! She looks EXACTLY like you in each of the photos.

  2. What's that saying , the apple doesn't fall from the tree. She is adorable just like her mommy.

  3. Lauren, Taylor is so beautiful! Camryn has the same picnic basket. She got it for her 1st birthday and absolutely loves it. We have picnics everyday. Love the updates. Don't they grow up so fast?

  4. Love it!!! I love comparing baby pictures & seeing the resemblances! She's such a doll, just like her Mama!

  5. It seems to be like the same person! Waw!
