Sunshine Sunday - drawing, mini-us, and projects

Art was always one of my very favorites subjects in school.  I love to draw.  This week Rex took a sudden interest in drawing and it kind of got me excited.  We practiced drawing dogs and bears and even Santa.  My favorite is when he draws people though.  He drew this one for me a couple of weeks ago.  It's Rex and Mommy.
This picture is my husband when he was little.  



Can you see a resemblance to Rex (on the left there below)?  Sometimes I can't get over how similar they are.  I always thought it was fun that my husband had a mini-him.


Now this is little me.  If you change the hair to blonde, this is the exact excited face little Baden has.  


It's kind of fun to have a mini version of yourself, I've discovered.  He likes to organize.  He hates sudden, loud noises.  He sings while he's doing everything.  He's me and I get him.


Do you have a mini-you?

I have some upcoming projects this week that I'm super excited to show you.  Having a project to work on makes me really happy.  And sharing it with you does too.  Thanks for reading.

  1. That is SO adorable! Everybody thinks my son is a mini of his dad, but the crazy thing is that he is my son's adoptive father. That only makes it more special though, because clearly they were meant to be father and son even if it happened differently than normal. :)

  2. My Mom tells me that my daughters is exactly as I was at 2 1/2. We don't LOOK exactly the same, but I always sang about everything, talked non-stop, and was always trying to make everyone laugh. She even tells me that our voices sound exactly the same at that age. It's fun and exciting experience!

  6. My three year old son looks just like me but acts just like my husband. He's a cross between the two of us. I like that too.

  7. Erica, growing up I always heard how I looked and acted just like my dad. The funny part is that he is not my biological dad and I have known it forever so it always made my heart smile whenever I heard these things. Your son is very blessed to have his dad.

  8. My daughter is a mini-me. In fact, we spent a week with my grandparents - her great-grandparents - this past summer. The whole time we were there they kept calling her "Annie" (my name). It was super funny ;)

  11. That is adorable. Our son is my husband's mini-me and my oldest daughter is my mini-me. People always comment on how much we look alike. I finally realized it when I saw a picture of the two of us together.

  13. So cute! Everyone says that my son is a mini-me. When he was born he looked just like my dad and as he's gotten older (he's 21 months now) you can see more and more of my features and personality. When you get my little family together, you can definitely tell that he's my son (much to my husband's dismay lol). Although he's turning more in a Daddy's boy and getting into tools at the moment.

  14. That so cute that you both got your mini-me's :) My daughter is my mini-me in every way - looks, acts, the way she talks. My mother-in-love (yes love :)) tells me all the time that when she watches my kids she calls my daughter "Little Audrea" and my son "Baby Kevin" after her son hee hee. My son is my hubby's mini-me as much as my daughter is my mini-me. I like it because I know me so I treat my daughter just like I want to be treated; and I've mastered my hubby's likes/dislikes so my son is a breeze. Like you said, it's TONS of fun to have mini-me's :)

  16. I think the hospital gave me someone else's kids.
    Then again, my whole family only kind of sort of a little bit look like each other. There are little things- but nothing like your kids! That's got to be so fun! To think of all the fun photo projects you could do!
