I saw myself in her

Today at dinner Madds was in her high chair. After eating we were sitting around and relaxing. Madds was looking around, pretty seriously, as we were sitting there. And for the first time ever I saw myself in her face.

Maddy looks like Neil, smiles like Neil, has Neil's colouring, has Neil's height. I joke that I gave birth to my husband, in female form. Sometimes I look into her eyes and see a glimpse of my mother. But tonight for the first time I saw a glimmer of myself in her. It wasn't in her features but in her expression and in her eyes. It was me! Others have said that they see something of me in her eyes but I didn't see it. Until now. She really is my daughter! *grin*
