I guess it worked out perfectly fitting to name my Linda Claire after my sweet mother, since she turned out to be another Linda Palmer clone. I've been told all my life that I look just like my mom. In my early years I hated it...I don't know why, I guess I just wanted to be original. But now that I'm older, I LOVE people to tell me how much I am like her, and not just in looks. Now I have my little Clairey-Boo to carry it on. From the day she was born, I knew she had come straight from her Grandma Linda's arms and brought a piece of her with her. She looked just like her! When we helped my dad clean out the house before he moved, I found this little red and white polka dotted outfit that I remembered from pictures of myself. Of course I snagged it, wanting to take pictures of Claire in it to compare the two. I took the pictures, but never did anything with it...probably because Steve told me our baby looked like I had wrapped her in a loofah!! But now that I put the two together...HOLY TWINNERS!

In talking with my sister-in-law recently, she noted how much she thought Bode looked like how she remembered Steve as a baby. I had been thinking Bode was a baby boy twinner of Paige's and since she is a clone of her daddy, I guess it all comes full circle. So, compare for yourself...Daddy is the larger photo on the left with Paige in the lavender on the top right and Bode in the navy on the lower right. All babies are around 6 months.
