Rooney & Finch: a side-by-side comparison

image.jpg

When I was pregnant with Rooney, I couldn't imagine what she would be like. Then she was born and I realized I had given birth to my mini me. :-) So then I couldn't imagine Finch being any different than Rooney, even though everyone told me that all kids are different. It was just hard to wrap my mind around! When people first see him, they say, "Oh boy, don't you look like your _____" and instead of "mommy" or "daddy," they always say "SISTER!" Physically they are very similar, but personality-wise they are very different! We love them both (of course) and they bring us immeasurable joy! So just for fun, here's a fun look at our kids and how they compare ...
