The Apple Does Not Fall Far

I am prefacing this post with the following disclaimer:  My husband is vehemently opposed to me posting the picture below.  For some strange reason, he thinks the picture is unflattering.  I don't know what his beef is - I didn't catch any plumber's crack or toe jam...although you may be able to see a little belly button lint if you squint really hard. 

The point of this post is really much more about those funny moments as a parent when you can't help but appreciate how much your child resembles each of you.  Last month, I asked David to put Morgan down for her nap.  This process usually takes about 5 minutes.  When he hadn't returned 30 minutes later, I started to wonder what the hell happened.  I slowly cracked open the door and discovered two little sleeping beauties, one in her bed and one crashed out on the floor.  I thought about leaving him there, but then I realized his snoring had the potential to not only wake Morgan up, but scar her for life.

Not two weeks later, Morgan randomly started falling out of bed every night.  I found her under her window, next to her dresser and even behind her door.  Then one night, I discovered her sprawled out on the floor like some crime scene photo, looking just like David.  There are so many ways that I am glad Morgan takes after her dad...I'm just not sure this is one of them.

I hope you showed Morgan this picture... She is so BIG on being "twins" she would love seeing her Daddy on the floor like she was. They are certainly Daddy & Daughter. Precious. P.S. David you are cute no matter what ;0)
