Sometimes people say that they're not sure who Squeakles looks like. More often people insist that Squeakles looks exactly like J. But it's very rare that anyone thinks Squeakles looks like me.
Except me. I think it all the time. I see it mostly in his eyes and I feel like I'm looking at a baby version of myself. So why doesn't anyone else see it, even my parents??
Tonight I pulled out my old baby pictures to compare. What do you think?
In case you're wondering why it looks like someone stuffed my pants, it's because they did. Those are the cloth diapers of the mid-70's. (Squeakles also wears cloth diapers and they are a little bit bulky under his clothes, but they're never as bad as in that picture of me! But I am pretty sure he's wearing a disposable in the picture above.)
Okay, so the resemblance isn't 100% and I think that Squeakles is much cuter than I was, but I think it's there. Or do you think that I could have paired him up with any other baby in a similar pose and they would look the same?
