Eyelash Jackpot!

Published in: Daily Photo

When Connor Claire was still in my tum, I hoped and prayed that she’d come into this world safe, sound and healthy…and with her daddy’s lashes, LOL!


I know, so silly. But El Hub’s lashes are one of the reasons I fell in love with him (they’re so long, lush and curly!), and I really, really wanted Connor to inherit them. And dagnabbit, she actually did!

See the cute curl and lovely length? Yeah, she definitely did *not* get my lashes, which are short, straight and completely uninteresting.


So…JACKPOT!!! πŸ™‚

    (Hashtag) SCORE! Me thinks you should buy stock in your fave mascara. Connor Claire’s gonna be their new spokes model πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Lol, who knows what crazy mascara trend will be around at the time she starts wearing mascara (if she wants to… who knows, she might end up being a tomboy!). Remember those crazy vibrating wands from a while back?!

        I only vaguely remember the vibrating mascara. And I’m all for tomboys. I was a tomboy until about 5th or 6th grade. And my niece has a little bit of tomboy in her, though she has declared that she wants to be a “makeup person” when she grows up. Courtesy of auntie Kishia, of course. Which means that my job is done! Hope you got a little more rest today. Thanks for sharing “the view from where you sit” with us. It’s quite lovely! πŸ™‚

    She is so precious! I want to boop her little nose.

    Mina has a thing where she licks people’s noses, but I wouldn’t let her do it to Connor Claire, LOL!

    • Karen says:

      Aww, sweet Mina.

      Here’s to hoping that Connor is a future cat lady. πŸ™‚

      Happy Tuesday to you, by the way. It’s sunny and clear out here and it feels like spring, hooray! I hope you have a nice day.

        It’s not bad here! Sun is so nice! I’m also getting a MAC order delivered today, so it should be good! πŸ˜€

        Mina is so sweet, just so clumsy. She fell and got stuck behind the washer and dryer last week, and it’s not the first time it’s happened. Her little tail nub makes her endearingly klutzy.

  4. Agata says:

    Definitely a jackpot! She is so beautiful, Karen! How are you doing?

  5. Yay Connor Claire! She’s so cute <3

    I feel ya on the eye lash front, I got my dad's thin, light brown, barely there lashes and not my mom's lush, dark, Greek lashes. Also, I've known so many boys with beautiful lashes, it's so not fair!

    My “baby” girl is a teenager now, and I have to sneak in the adoring stares and photos when I can. She can’t stand when I give her the “goo-goo eyes”. Have fun adoring your precious little Connor Claire. The time flies WAY too fast!

  9. Arianne says:

    She’s beautiful!!!

  10. Jessica Revitte says:

    Such a beautiful baby, not that I’m surprised! Our little lady has the longest most lush lashes and I am so envious of her.


  11. nai says:

    awww what a cutie pie she is! hugs to you, baby, hubs, & tabs!

  12. jessica says:

    She would be adorable with any type of lash. <3

    One of my nieces has lashes that look like those mink false lashes – medium brown, thick, curly.

    Love the pictures – what a cutie!

  14. Nocole says:

    Gorgeous! Hope your feeling well? Congratulations to you and El hub!

  15. I hupet for the same thing, and my daughter actually inherited her fathers amazing lashes, while my son has mine. But he has his great-grandmas hands, with the perfectly shaped nails every female in our family was hoping for.

    Congrats again on your princess Karen! Lashes for days lol <3

  17. I’m curious how the boys’ lashes and brows will turn out. In baby and young child pictures, I had brown lashes but they turned blonde along with my brows as I got older. Here’s hoping they get my husband’s perfectly shaped and lush darker brows, my lash shape and his color. πŸ˜„

    She is beautiful!!

  19. Sarah says:

    Their eyelashes don’t fully grow in until they are about 6 months so they will likely get even better. My sons are like brooms. Mine were like that when I was little- super long and thick. Mine are still long but def not thick

  20. Rebecca says:

    Thanks for sharing the picture! She’s so beautiful. Hope you’re well.

  21. Tatiana says:

    Congrats! My daughter also got her daddy’s eyelashes. They’re so long that if she wears mascara when wearing her glasses they rub up against her glasses. So she mostly wears contacts. Every time she stops by the house for a visit I just stare at her eyes in awe. She also got daddy’s brains and ambition.

  22. Such a cuite! πŸ™‚

    She’s so beautiful! If she has lashes like that at two weeks, I can only imagine how stunning they’ll be in a couple months.

  24. Sherry Rooney says:

    Connor is soooo adorable!! I just love her chubby cheeks!!

  25. Katherine Hoyt says:

    Ahh, she’s so cute!!!! I hope you are recovering well!

  26. Canan says:

    So beautiful, being a mom is awesome.

  27. So cute, and those lashes! She got your nose, Karen…

    Yes, Karen, she’s really stunning!

  30. Kim says:

    Yay! Love the lashes! I was just telling one of the boys last night how lucky he is to have thick, long “camel” lashes. He told me that he didn’t see the appeal and I said it was because he wasn’t a girl. ALL girls/ladies would love to have lashes like that. πŸ™‚

    I hope you’re all well!!

    She is beautiful and lovely!

    She is absolutely gorgeous!

  33. Renee says:

    Awwwww!! What a Gerber Baby! She’s so pure and beautiful! Gratz to you, what a bundle of joy!!

  34. Nicole says:

    Wow Connor Claire really did hit the jackpot! She’s beautiful and with long lovely lashes on top of it. Since I know you are a bit of a geek too, I’m going to guess Connor is for Sarah Connor and Claire is from Heroes (“save the cheerleader, save the world!”). I’m sure it’s something completely different but until I hear otherwise she is literally the indestructible baby. Congrats Karen!
