Does she look like her mama or her daddy?

Of course we all love to hear that our children look like us. When Malina was born and for the first several months of her life i always got the, "Wow she looks just like her Daddy". I even had people say to me, "You've got some weak genes."...and though i love my husband dearly and think he's gorgeous... i definitely imagined my little girl looking just like me. Over the past few months her face has developed more, and i think there are days when she looks more like Gabe and others when she looks more like me...but all in all she is her own little person. And i guess we can settle on saying she looks a little like us both. Here's some picture of Gabe and i when we were little...You make the call!

Malina: 7 months and growing...



A few months back I took Malina in to get her pictures taken. She was a riot...she smiled and laughed and worked the camera for almost two hours. I can't look at any of these pictures without smiling and laughing. Her personality is just blossoming...as you can see..


I have to give a little shout out to my friend Michele Reyes who is the oh so talented photographer. She is truly amazing at what she does. She took Malina's pictures when she was three weeks old as well. She really captures all the natural and sweet expressions that you want to remember about your little one. We have been so thrilled with all of the pictures she's taken of Malina. Please check out her website at michelereyes.com
