Mini Me Birthday

Today marks the 8th year of the birth of my miniature me.

I don't know how one child could be so much like her mother. It's actually a tad bit scary. It's as if I am raising and living with a smaller version of myself.

Our looks 
Mannerisms
Insecurities
Temper
Social butterfly tendencies
Dramatic antics
Sense of belonging
Love of fashion, shopping and lip gloss
Bossiness
Needing to be in control
High emotions
and of course, as you can see in the picture below...our POSING WAYS.


The bond that I have with my youngest doesn't compare to the bond that I share with Logan. Is it a stronger bond? No. Is Logan my favorite? Absolutely not, but we have this strange connection that I don't have with Landry.

Sometimes it works in our favor and sometimes it's a hot mess because we are so much alike.

She has tested my patience to no end. I have fought double the battles with her than with my youngest. She has driven me to pure mommy craziness.

But, her existence has provided a bond that will never be broken or replicated; a connection that I will never have with anyone else. 

Even though she is too cool to hold my hand in public, she is my side kick, singing partner in the car, shopping buddy, bedtime story reader....my mini me.

I love you Logan and am so proud of all that you are, dream to be and will one day become.

I look forward to the day that we can share clothes. I know, that sounds so shallow and superficial, but I do envision that day.

You are part of my heart, soul and life...forever.

Happy Birthday, Logan. I can't believe you are 8 years old going on 18.

Now, I am off to get ready for tonight's slumber party that will consist of all things nails, toes, make up, cupcakes, giggles and a late night!

***Please don't forget to vote for me. I am in the running to be Wallis' 1st U.S. Fashion blogger.

Happy Birthday to your sweet gal!
I totally get this entire post. I have a mini me too & she is my oldest. We have a bond that is quite different than the bond with my other two. I've said that to people before & they have looked down upon me as if I love one more than the other but that isn't the case. It's just a different bond we share so I totally get you on this :)
