Blue Eyed Boy and Brown Eyed Girl

Since I was little I have always wondered what my kids would look like. How much of me would I see in them and how much of Shane. When Swayzee was born it was obvious, she was me in almost every way; brown hair, dark eyes, a V shaped face, there really wasn't much of the Arnell gene in her. As she has grown and we compare pictures of me as a little girl and her it is so fun to see the similarities. When I got pregnant with Michael we thought that he would be pretty much like Swayz. OH how we were wrong. Michael came out and there was nothing similar. He has beautiful blue eyes, blond hair and he can pack on the pounds. It is so fun to watch him grow and change. He becomes more and more like Shane every day.
So here are my two beautiful babies that are so different in every way. Swayz is such a girl, small, loves princesses and so gentle and then there is Mike... ALL BOY! He grunts, growls and hits and he isn't even one yet. He weighs 20 lbs and Swayz is only at 24lbs. I love watching them play, fight, love each other. I pray every day that Shane and I will have the wisdom to teach them all they need to know.
