Faces of Puffiness

I never forget a face, but in your case I’ll make an exception.

– Groucho Marx

TeaglePuff loves faces. . . she likes to draw them, make them, and force others to make them for her amusement. Its a bit of an obsession with her, as you may have heard. And as her mother, I must admit that I also have a bit of an obsession – with her face. And how could I not, really? I mean. . .look at it!

Such gorgeousness! Such adorabillity! How can one help but to be smitten? *smits* And you know what the coolest part is? Her face is very similar to a couple of other faces I look at every day. . .

“She looks just like. . .” is a hot debate that has been raging since the moment Puff was born. As I’m sure is the case in many families, my side of the family thinks she’s the spittin’ image of me, but the other side feels that she resembles nobody so much as her dear ol’ dad. To us, she just looks like herself, but after digging through some old photographs, I can see where the fam is coming from.

Our opinion? YES! She looks just like us. . .but she really looks just like herself!

As many of you do not have the privilege of seeing our beauty in motion, and since Puff’s current favorite thing is to emote, I have assembled a collection of the many faces of Puff for you to peruse. Feel free to formulate your own opinion as to which parent she most resembles. I’m still going with an even split. . .and waaaaaaay more cuteness than any one person ought to be in fair possession of. . .

frightened face

angry face

sleeping face

surprised face

silly face

crazy face

The next question is where the darling girl gets her sweet, sunshiny, cheerful, and whimsically SILLY disposition from. THAT question is very easy to answer. No debate. Hands down. . .
