You are NOT the Father!

Well, let's be honest. LBF does not exactly look like her dad! I told Lilly's mother that I'm considering taking her on the Maury Povich show to get a paternity test. By the way, did you know Maury is married to Connie Chung?

Realistically, I'm like Mr. Snerdley. He says he is not very good at the "he looks like.../she has her mother's..." game. I'm not either. But the conventional wisdom is that LBF favors Jamie, but has my mouth/chin. Whichever side you come down on, here is some heredity Jamie and I are both thankful for. LBF has...

1) Jamie's toes. I went through a large portion of my life believing that everyone else had freakishly-long toes. I eventually came to understand that my toes are just short (but they're not webbed as Jamie likes to say).
2) Michael's temperament. LBF is not easily upset. Enough said.
3) Jamie's nose. Woohoo!
4) Michael's eyes. Well to be clear, I think LBF has Jamie's eyes and my eye color. Again, are we sure this is my child?
5) Michael and Jamie's Chaucer obsession. She loves her Chaucey baby!
