Opposites?....Maybe not....

All three of my boys seem to have been born with their own look and personality. You know how in some families you can tell they're siblings right away? I don't think that is the case with my boys. I never knew you could have 3 that would be completely opposite of each other....but you can!

Although Braden and Cade both love and are talented at baseball...the similarities seem to stop there. They actually do play some of the same positions, but Braden is primarily a catcher and Cade's strongest position is pitcher. Cade is very outgoing and will stare you down to the death when he's pitching. Braden is cool and quiet. He does his job, but doesn't even let you know he has to think about it. Cade is rock solid and is now bigger than Braden. Braden is a scrawny as they come :) (I'm not writing anything they don't already know:) I have a sneaking suspision, though, that Braden is going to shoot past him one day soon. I love all my boys and embrace their differences...

Every once in a while, though...I get a glimpse of their similarities. When I uploaded this picture of Cade, I was so confused. I couldn't figure out how this picture of Braden got mixed in with Cade's! It took me a while to figure out that it was, in fact, Cade! He is actually spitting here :) I didn't intentionally take a pic of him spitting, but...welll...that's the way it goes. There's something about how his profile is shaped here that looks the spitting image of Braden...I love it!!

It seems, as the boys have gotten older, they have started to resemble each other more. I don't care either way. They're brothers...and as we all know, that has nothing to do with DNA or how much they look like the other!

Ok you have REALLY got to come take some baseball pics for me. I can't seem to ever get good shots! Secondly, I totally agree. If you lined up all 6 of my boys there is no way that anyone would pick any of them out as brothers. There are a couple that if I had not witnessed them emerging from my loins I would wonder where on earth they came from.

Love these Jennifer! It is awesome to see the different and unique characteristics God gives our children! Unbelievable how they resemble one another in these!
