One of the staples to each visit with Mom is a review of recent photos. I take my iPad and we swipe through photos of Matt, me, and our families. I fill her in on the stories around some of the photos. She couldn’t look any less interested. However, she typically perks up when photos of Eliza pop up. They hold her gaze a little longer.
I have mentioned to Katie and Matt before on how I believe Eliza looks like my mom. Some photos are beautifully similar.
The chins. The laugh-lines. The shape of their faces. The noses (a little bit).
The power of Helen is strong in Eliza. It is comforting. I love it. Mom would love it too.
