People often wonder who Maren looks like or say she fits right in the family. So I wanted to compare baby pics to see...one thing I realized is that is hard to do. We just have different random shots of the kids, differing qualities and distances, but here you go. I guess I would say that Maren does just fit in with the group. I see parts of the kids that are all similar as babies as well as features that are different. Either way, I have also always felt that they look very different as toddlers and now older kids. These are all pictures of the kids when they were about 6-8 weeks old. What do you notice?
(And yes - I did put the dress on backwards in this last photo - oops!)
Yesterday Steve was able to give Maren her name and blessing at church. He asked a few of our friends to join him. It is a sweet time to think about the possible good things that await your child. I found a cute white dress with pink bows and flowers for Maren to wear. When I went to take pictures of her she was super happy and smiley. It is fun to see her start to look and smile at us.
