everyone calls alexa “mini marissa” … even she calls herself that sometimes. the funny thing is, she totally is a mini me. i’ve realized as of late that she even kind of dresses like me–aside from her ridiculous aversion to buttons that has lasted for about two years now. when i try to convince her that buttons are fashionable and everyone wears them she very eloquently states that there is nothing wrong with buttons, but they are not for her (she won’t be caught dead in jeans so she wears leggings or tights everyday, whereas i could pretty much live in jeans). her color palette is even like mine… i.e. the blue tones seen in the images in this post. long gone are the days of the pink tutus and princess dresses… nate used to get so annoyed by the “princess” stage, but it is almost like it was here one day and then gone the next.
