Footsies!

Family FotoFun Friday Challenge #23 
Post your pictures on your blog and leave a link and a comment here before 3/23/07. 

This week's photo challenge is "Feet".  Want to play?  Here are the very simple rules.

Ffff_feet_sm Here's Gwen and Maddy's cute little feeties!  Gwen's are easy to identify in the main photo since one of her toes (on each foot) doesn't seem to "fit" and always lays on top of the other two.  I think it's cute that she leaves little footprints that look like she only has four toes!   

Maddy is a size 7 -- a full size smaller than her same-age sister.  You can spot her in the collage since her feet are so white!  Even though her skin is very pale, her feet were practically black when she was a newborn (click <here> to see).  We're really grateful to have those early photos.  She was only 4 pounds at birth and we can hardly believe that this is the same child! 

Ffff_feet_2_sm The teeny-tiny toes in this collage belong to the three week old feet of our 18 year old son, Michael. 
Most babies are born a size zero but this Little Bigfoot was already a size 3 at birth!  I remember when this photo was taken... I held his feet up for the camera because I thought they were so big for a newborn baby!   He's always had big feet.... he was a man's size 13 at age 13 and, thankfully, his feet haven't grown since then!  I used to love to nibble on his sweet little toes but you'll all be relieved to know that I've not done that in many MANY years! 

I've also included the referral photos of Gwendolyn and Madeline.  Both sets of photos included pictures of their bare nekkid feet.  This is "Red Thready" because the photos were incredibly similar and taken at the same time even though the girls were adopted one year apart. 

Gwen and Maddy are two very different children but they have too much in common for it to be mere coincidence.  The referral photos are the first thing (click <here> to see them side by side).  The poses *could* have been anything but they were almost exactly the same.  Then there's the double swirls in their hair.  How many true siblings share that?  It's very rare but both of our girls have it.  Even the unique aspects of their personalities compliment eachother.  It's more than you'd expect from a random set of adoptions so, even though I'm not totally into that whole "red thread" thing, I have to admit that there's something going on here.

***This week, Madeline is 2 years 7 months old
... She's 34.25 inches tall and 24.5 pounds.

***This week, Gwendolyn is 2 years 8 months old.

... She's 36.25 inches tall and 31.5 pounds.

Wanna play this week?  Let's see those cute feet!  (even if they're yours!)
