I haven't blogged forever, promise I'll catch up, yada yada yada.
In the meantime, my friend Kara and I were sitting on a bench admiring Carma the other day (well, really, we were waiting to see how many of our friends stood us up but while we waited we did some admiring...) and in an effort to describe how Carma looks like Clyde as a baby but not completely, I came up with a brilliant comparison.
Disney characters that are animals and
have a boy and a girl version.
(let's pretend that came out more eloquently...)
Exhibits A through F:(all images borrowed from google. please don't sue me)
The girl version is always a little softer/pinker/usually has a bow/often a bit of blush/and pretty much always delicate eyelashes, usually off to the sides for maximum flirty batting power.
And let's face it - that's a pretty solid description of Carma! Especially the eyes - my mom once characterized Carma's eyes as 'coquette-ish' and I think that's perfect.
So just for fun, here's a side by side of Carma with each of her older brothers, all in the range of three months-ish, give or take a couple weeks.
Clyde and Carma:
Will and Carma:
and finally, Jack and Carma:
Ahhh, they're all just so sweet!(I can say that right now because two of them are at school and two of them are asleep. Ask me again about their sweetness in an hour when they're all home and half of them are crying while they other half are hungry/whiny and then they swap and then I'm crying too, haha).
