Something pretty amazing?

I think Maddy lookes like Gwen. Not like her twin but certainly like her sister. So I've been searching my old photos for proof but can't find any since all of Maddy's pictures are from about age 11 months and, except for her referral pictures, I only have pictures of Gwen from age 14 months.

So I pulled out the referral photos. Remember that both girl are just one month apart in age(Gwen is a month older than Maddy though). I'm pretty sure the referral pictures for both girls were taken at 11 months. Here's what I saw:

Mug_shots

These are their "mug shots". Usually, they're taken earlier than the other referral photos.

I think it's interesting that they're both wearing little upsidedown smiles. The colors swap (red and white) is interesting too!

390sitting

Both referral photo sets included a "sitting" picture. Both included a stuffed bear. Both included bare feet. Both included a similar expression!

390standing

Both sets of referral photos included a "standing" picture. Both included leaning on an object for support. Again, there's so sweet little feet!

I've looked at LOTS of referral photos over the months and never seen two sets that matched so much in composition. Amazing (I think!) I called Tracey at USAA today and asked if she could request an update (with pics!). She said she would. I can't wait to see what little Madeline Abigail looks like now! :)
