A long time ago we had a thread asking who you thought baby would look like or what traits you'd like them to inherit from you and SO. Now that a lot of us had our babies, I wanted to follow up and see if your LO looks like you expected/who they look like/etc.

(Those of you patiently, or not so patiently lol, waiting for your LOs to make their appearance please come back after they're born and fill us in!)

I expected Georgia to be bald or have peach fuzz hair like my son and my step-kids. I also thought she would have reddish/strawberry hair because I have a lot of redheads on my side and DH was a redhead as a child. I thought she'd be super tiny and have brown eyes. And overall we all thought she would look like my step-daughter because one of the later ultrasounds we had she looked very similar.

And in reality: I was wrong in almost every aspect! She was born with a HEADFULL of dark dark brown hair! Caught ALL of us off guard! Not only the fact that she had hair but that it's SO DARK! All 3 of the other kids were born with very light hair (my son's was strawberry blonde while the big kids had blonde)... all 3 kids are still blondish.
As for being "tiny"... not so much! This little chunky monkey was 8lbs 11oz! I don't know her eye color yet but right now they look very different than Chase's eye color at this age and his are blue now. I think hers will be brown like her Daddy and sister. She's also got much tanner skin than the kids do- I think she inherited my olive/Italian skin.
And overall she looks nothing like ANY of her siblings! It's amazing how different she is from them- as of right now I don't even think they'd pass as siblings lol

She has DH's nose, my ears, my mouth, and the jury is out on her eyes right now (the shape) because they don't look like either of us at the moment.

*Thank you to

Yalia looks just like I thought, Javier's twin! Black hair, tan skin, and brown eyes. She was about a pound bigger than what I thought shed be.

She looks pretty much like I expected her too! She looked SO MUCH like DS in her ultrasounds and looks very very similar to him still now! The only thing that really surprised me was how tiny she was! 6 lbs 4 oz! DS was 8 lbs 3 oz so I was shocked! She does have darker hair than DS did but it is already lightening up.

Thanks so much to Jaidynsmum for my adorable siggy

Evaani looks just like her daddy, as I expected, because all our kids look like dh. She was so tiny though, only 7lbs 10oz, and almost all my babies have been in the 9lb range, even a 10lber and an 11 1/2 lber.

Finley definitely resembles her brothers but they all have their own unique look; ill post a comparison pic. She has less hair than I expected, but the little she does have is the medium brown I expected. The boys were both born with medium brown- Cole's stayed and Chase's turned blonde, so we'll see what happens. She got the family dimples (yay) and I'm thinking daddy's eyes, but it still is too early to say. Although, Cole's were definitely brown at this point and hers are blue right now. It's so fun to watch them grow and change!

Here's the comparison pic:

Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!

She is looking pretty spot on to how I hoped. She has my face and her daddy's hair. She is also tall with big feet, from her daddy

Thank you, Jaidynsmum, for the amazing siggy

She has features of all the kids and there are times when she reminds me of each one. Her hair is a different color than expected and she's smaller than I expected. Hoping she will get to wear all the 0-3 month clothes we got her before it gets cold. Shes still swimming in newborns.

Caelyn looks very like my first daughter, but Maddie has her Daddy's eyes and Caelyn has mine. I see a lot of me in her as does everyone else. As far as guessing what she would like, I figured she would look like Maddie and she does.
