Like Grandfather, like Grandson. . . uncanny
I've had this picture for quite some time, but I just found a lock of his hair when he was born. I found the picture and put the envelope with the hair behind the picture in the same frame.
I thought of his sweet mother, taking a tiny lock of hair and saving it. The tiny piece of hair is carefully taped to a piece of paper and put into an envelope which is labeled "Lock of D__'s hair at the time of Birth."
What I can't get over is how much he looks like his little grandson, or vice versa. I had to look for a while to find a picture of the Grandson from the same angle. But I couldn't find one of him looking up like his grandfather is. I think it is sufficient enough that you can see how very much they resemble each other.
The best part is, they are best friends as well. Grandpa can always read his little grandson like a book. And the Grandson adores his Grandpa.
