tèt koupe

There is phrase in Haiti {tèt koupe} that literally means "cut head" - As in, you could cut off your heads and switch them - you look that much alike.  There are many ways to tell someone that you think they look like their sister, mother, cousin, son ... but the quickest way is just "tet koupe".

In the first photo Troy is standing with Hope and Phoebe's First Mom and their much older sister, Bedline. In the bottom photo Hope is sharing some recent art work.

Bedline is in the Heartline Prenatal Program; expecting her little one in late October. Every week I watch the way she moves and sounds and looks and am dumbfounded by genetics.

Tèt koupe, wi?
