Rise of the Clones

My name is Nellie Louise. I was named after my great grandmothers Nelda Rose Conner and  Louise Ellen Henry. I never met Nelda, she died when my mother was a young woman, but my family has told me stories about her and how I am like her. I use recipes that she made and I have been told we have many of the same tendencies (though her penchant for absconding with Steak and Shake dinnerware is something I am glad I did not inherit.)
Anyway, I found this great photo of my great grandmother and wanted to show everyone the family resemblance. In addition to chins and upper lips we also share the exact same shade of green Irish eyes.

Holy cow! I've seen another pic of her before but in that one, I can really see the cloning! That's unbelievable. Pj even looks like her!

what amazing resemblance! I LOVE to read stories like this that show even personalities come through generations. My daughter is named after two of her great-grandmothers... and even though she is only two, and never met my grandma, I would some days swear my grandma is channeling through her! (I'm really not crazy.. but she truly has some of my grandma's genes)

Oh wow!!! You really can see it trickling down! Such a beautiful family too :)

Apparently I look just like my great grandmother too, and inherited her stubbornness. At least I got the good stuff from her ;)
