This is a gorgeous picture of my niece Hannah holding Miss Nora. Hannah is one of Nora's "double cousins" since her dad is my brother and her Mom is Nora's Dad's sister.
Yeah, it sounds gross. But it's all perfectly legal in all 50 states.
Basically, the two oldest kids in the M and P families got married, and us two middle kids from the same two families got married.
It makes our kids "double cousins" since they come from different parents all together, but have the same sets of grandparents.
It's the closest Nora will come to having sisters, and it's neat to look at the baby pictures of Hannah and Miriam and try to guess which features look like which kid more.
There's no doubt there's a family resemblance though.
Aren't they pretty?
