When I was pregnant with my first, I use to sit for hours and imagine what she'd look like.

I thought for sure she's be small/petite with big blue eyes and blonde hair.

My reasonings...
I'm short and tiny, always have been.
DH has the most beautiful blue eyes and was a complete toehead as a child.

my baby.... 9lbs 12.8oz and 21.5in!! NOT tiny. lol
Now, she's 10 and almost taller than me. lol
She was born with blue eyes (obviously) but they turned to GREEN around 2. And she was born with stark black hair. lol Which is now a dirty blonde.

My second, I was still hoping for those blue eyes.
Her's are now turning green but still have a LOT of blue in them.
Her hair was stark black and curly at birth and is not just a tad darker than my oldests.

If this one is a girl, I picture another looking like my first two. Probably the green eyes, dirty blonde hair.
If it's a boy, I honestly don't know. I'd like to see more of my DH in him than the girls have.

So..... what about you ladies. Picture your babies for me!

Wow! That's a toughie!

I guess I've always imagined my baby with little or no hair, blond and very fine. Blue eyes since all of my nieces and nephews have them. And smallish (but long).

Guess we'll see in 5 months!

I picture my baby to have brown curly or wavy hair and being very tall. But not having much hair when it's born. I have a feeling this child is going to be the tallest in its class by the time it gets to school (because SO and I were both ridiculously tall growing up... his stayed with him and I just stopped growing when I was 11 haha). Brown eyes or dark green. There is a chance this baby will have flaming red hair, since it comes from both sides of our families, but I'm hoping for brown.

i had NO idea what to expect with Cohen...i was scared that he would look like my husband did as a baby and he was an uuuuuugy baby, quite frightening to be honest. But, he turned out cuter than either of us ever were.

i have a feeling this one will look completely different than cohen, and i still hope that she/he doesn't look like daddy did lol. of course, a healthy baby is all that matters.

its kind of a given that my kids will be blond with blue eyes.

Though they have different shades.

When I was pregnant with Olivia I pictured a little tiny baby with black hair and blue eyes.

She was 8 1/2 pounds when she was born and although she had black hair and blue eyes it changed as she got older. She now has brown hair and hazel eyes.

With this baby I keep picturing it being born with dark hair but switching over to blond as "she" gets older (always girl in my dreams). This baby in my dreams is also not as petite as Olivia is (Olivia is in the 25th%).
I keep dreaming of them standing side by side and this baby is only a few inches shorter than Olivia. They always have their arms around each other in the dream.

I honestly don't know how this baby will turn out.. Since my DH and I are a interracial couple. My DH is Mexican and I'm 1/2 Filipino and 1/2 German..

I'm short and "average" size.. My DH is tall but has a little more to love..

Adriana was born 6 lbs 15 oz's and was 19 3/4 inches tall.. She was a petite little baby.. And to this day she's still petite.. At 18 1/2 months old she's 23 lbs and is 31 1/2 inches tall.. She's still a petite girl and I have a feeling she's going to be small as she grows up.. Maybe the same height as me.. Adriana was born with Dark hair and dark eyes.. Her hair is slowly becoming like mine, dark brown, but she still has those awesome dark brown eyes.. So many people always comment to me on how beautiful my daughter is..

This baby. I don't know.. But I have a feeling he or she will look something like this.. I've been told all of my life I would make pretty babies.. I honestly didn't believe it until I had my daughter..

Both of my kids looked exactly the same at birth. They could have been twins. Now they are a little older, my son looks identical to his dad (olive skin, dark dark brown eyes) , and my daughter looks like me (pale, honey brown eyes) .

It will be interesting to see if this one looks like one, but has the skin tone of the other.
