My sister just posted this picture of her daughter, Sarah, on her blog:
When this photo was taken, Sarah had just looked in the mirror at herself and exclaimed, “I’m Eleanor!”
Yes, it’s been noted before. The two little cousins look remarkably alike. For those of you who have you doubts, I present to you a photo of Eleanor taken when she was approximately the same age (about 2 1/2):
It’s not just me, is it? I mean, my kids look at Eleanor’s baby photos and insist that they are really looking at pictures of Sarah. I mean, I know they don’t look exactly alike, but it’s enough to be remarkable.
(And for those of you who are wondering, the title of this blog post comes from the theme song of The Patty Duke Show, which I am familiar with owing to Nick at Nite, alas.)

I LOVED the Patty Duke show – it was on a lot during my childhood for some reason. You have no idea how often that song runs through my head. And those are a couple of darling cousins – what cuties!
Yes, every time I see Sarah at church I think for a second that she’s Eleanor. It is a remarkable resemblance.
Now I just need to have a little boy to look like Wimme or Jeffrey… maybe in a couple of years.
I know this post is actually about the Doppelganger between the two girls, but let me just say I loved Patty Duke. I really miss Nick at Night when it had shows from the 50s and early 60s. I loved Dobey Gillis, Car 54, Dennis the Menace, Donna Reed, and Ozzie and Harriet. Which is one of the many reasons I dominate over my peers in Trivial Pursuit.
Wow – that’s crazy! When I first logged on, I wondered why you posted an old picture of Eleanor on your blog. And about the post before that – ‘Go ahead and taste me’ – ha ha! I can’t get enough Jeffrey-isms.
