Petra's hair stands on end – no matter how much we wash, brush, comb, or otherwise attempt to squash it, it sticks up. She looks electrified. It's very cute.
Unruly hair must run in the family. Here's my favorite picture of Petra's cousin, Travis's nephew, Nathan.
Does he look like Petra? I'm not sure, but maybe around the mouth, especially when Petra gets grumpy and squeezes her mouth tight. Here's a (not grumpy) picture of Petra for comparison purposes.
And while I'm on the subject of family resemblances, here's a picture of my niece Olivia. Check out those lovely thighs. Petra's working on some Rubenesque thighs of her own, but she's not quite up there with Olivia yet.
I see similarities around the eyes and nose. So Petra's a hybrid with the upper part of her face looking like me and my family and the lower part looking like Travis and his family. When I look at her though, she doesn't look familiar – she looks like her own unique, inscrutable self.
