September 3 10

So, I have this giant rubbermaid tub filled to the top with pictures. Most are from back in the day when Emily was a wee thing and I would finish a roll of 36 pictures and race over to a one-hour photo place to have my photos developed asap and when I’d pick them up there’d be a roll of 36 pictures (with doubles) that had exactly 8 usable shots that didn’t include someone blinking or ruining a shot. You know, back before we had that lovely little delete button on our cameras. But, I can’t bring myself to throw pictures away…even ones I’ll never show anyone. It’s just one of those things. So they sit in a giant rubbermaid tub. I decided to go through it this week and came across this little number.

But, here’s the rub.

We have no idea which of our girls this is.

I say it’s Isabella.

The husband says it’s Emily.

Internet…decide who is right here.

for reference…

early days of Emily…

early days of Isabella…

  1. That’s totally Isabella.

  2. I’ve never even met your kids and I think it’s Isabella.

  3. Looks really Isabella to me. But looking at Baby emily, she looks exactly like present day Isabella. SO CONFUSING.

  13. thought it was a pic of ems, then when you said it could be bella, i thought it was bella. but the top of the head is dark, so it has to be emily – bella was bald . . . until . . . last year, pretty much.

  15. When I first saw the shot I thought what a cute shot of Isabella.

  16. Isabella, based on the eyes!

    Hard to tell though…

    Comment by Cait on September 3, 2010
  17. Not knowing your children either, I would say Isabella, based on her ears.

    Comment by Susan on September 3, 2010
  18. When I first saw it, I thought you were talking about Emily, and thought “boy, Emily looked a lot like Isabella”. So, I think Isabella. What do the girls think?

    Comment by Heather on September 3, 2010
  19. I say Isabella ONE-HUNDRED percent! It totally looks like her (even though all three of your kids look exactly like each other now). 😉

    Comment by Cassandra on September 3, 2010
  20. Definitely Emily! The hair is DARK. Isabella had NO hair. 100%

    Comment by Jen Maier on September 3, 2010
  21. Looks like Isabella. Some people are saying her hair looks dark, but you can’t even see it! That thin rim in the back could be just a shadow.

    Comment by Anna on September 3, 2010
  22. Totally Isabella.

    Comment by Just Shireen on September 3, 2010
  23. Without looking at the other photos I was goign to say Emily because the quality of the photo looked older, but then I saw Isabella’s picture and I’m totally confused. Im leaning Emily though because Isabella was a total baldy.

  24. Isabella.

    Comment by Amanda on September 4, 2010
  25. For sure Isabella.

    Comment by ClassyFabSarah on September 4, 2010
  26. Isabella. Totally in the eyes and the mouth.

    Comment by monstergirlee on September 4, 2010
  27. Isabella. For sure.

    Comment by Meghan on September 4, 2010
  28. I’m 100% certain. That’s Josh. 😉

    Comment by Ed Prutschi on September 4, 2010
  29. One vote for Emily

    Comment by April on September 4, 2010
  30. Isabella. Definitely.

    Comment by SciFi Dad on September 5, 2010
  31. I’m just going to giggle and shake my head. Because this is funny.

    Comment by moosh in indy. on September 5, 2010
  32. Lol. Man I’m glad mine each had a different hair color at birth.

    Um Bella. That’s my guess. It’s the shape of the eyes. I think.

    Comment by Issa on September 5, 2010
  33. i’d say emily just by looking at the actual photograph, not necessarily the subject. the colouring is the same i think.

    Comment by Julie on September 6, 2010
  34. I vote Emily, since I see a bit of dark hair.
    .-= Katie´s last blog ..In which you may count how many times I say the word “pregnant” =-.

    Comment by Katie on September 6, 2010
  35. I vote with Katie about the dark hair and say Emily.

    Comment by regan on September 6, 2010
  36. I *was* going to say Isabella, but the PPS totally got me with the hair argument, so I’m giving my vote to Emily!

    FWIW, we have similar problems with pics of our boys, which is funny because they really look so different in person (to me, anyway!!).

    God luck!

    Comment by Maggie on September 7, 2010
  37. I was going to say Bella because of the eyes, but I also read the comments and it’s true .. she had no hair but Emily’s baby pic has dark hair sooo I’d have to say 100% Emily

    Comment by Sarah on September 8, 2010
  38. I’m going to say it’s Josh.
