Liza Look-alike

While I have suspected the resemblance for some time, these photos prove my suspicion. Born seven years after our "baby," last summer we were blessed with a new baby in the family. Just like Liza, our D3 is beautiful. And the similarities don't stop there. The most obvious, of course, is that each has a beautiful and famous mom. Okay, I admit, I'm no Judy Garland, not even close. But D3 is a deadringer for Liza, and like Liza, D3 is also the center of attention wherever she goes.

We have known D3 to be a show stopper almost since the day she was born. DH did not believe me one morning last June when I said today is the day I'm having this baby. He had a restaurant only one week from opening and knew the baby could wait until after opening day. So off he drove, 40 miles away. Thank goodness for a believing neighbor with a car that drove me to the hospital later that afternoon. And if DH was irritated and annoyed at having to leave contractors unsupervised, abandon a to-do list ten pages long, and then drive through rush hour traffic to come to the hospital for the baby's birth, I didn't notice it. Not at all.

My two rules are that he be present for conception and then again for the delivery. After all, that really isn't asking much.

As I reflect on the past 11 months, I've come to realize that D3 isn't so much of a show stopper as a show starter. It has been constant fanfare since that day last June, and I am happy just to be somewhere in the credits.

  2. I do believe you got spammed! Shock, eh?

    What a sweet little pumpkin you have :)

  3. Hi Deborah,

    Did you say ``somewhere in the credits''? Your name is up there in lights!


  4. KJW-
    While time is flying by, just remember how great I look for being 26.

  5. Eve,

    Spam-o-rama! I can't delete it either.

    Thank you for the sweet compliment.

  6. David,

    Aw shucks. You make me blush.

  7. Never mind - I did figure out how to delete Mr. Spam!

  8. How -tell me, my hubby's been having problems.

  9. Eve,

    I cannot remember how I finally did it! I'm trying to recreate it in my mind or something, but no luck. Next time it happens, I'll pay more attention to what I do. Sorry!

  10. I figured it out-the garbage can symbol (after you're logged in).
