haha.. I bet your wondering what he'll look like.. I remember picturing my son looking similar to my daughter, olive skin tone, dark hair.. Nope, I was wrong.. lol He was born with brown hair with blonde high lights, he was dark when he was a newborn (due to jaundice) but as you can see now, he's white.. Crazy how genetics works..

I can't wait to see him. I'm assuming he will have a lot of hair. I did when I was born,lots of blonde curly hair. It darkened when I was about 4. The Papi of course has thick dark hair. Neither of us are tall so my baby will not be either I don't think.

I think a lot of ppl want to ask what Chace's nationality is when we're out in public but just don't know how to ask.... Especially if I'm not w/ my hubby...so we just get a lot of dumb empty looks..... Or they'll say he has beautiful eyes, he must get them from his father

I'm just learning to let stuff like this go...... I would love my baby no matter what color he was

Oh he does have nice eyes! I feel sorry for you and the hubby,you're going to have a lot of teen girls calling the house in the future!

I sometimes look and wonder what ethnic back ground some babies I see are as well. I think it's pretty normal to wonder and even to ask. Sometimes it's hard to find the right way to ask though. Also you have to think before you say something like "your daughter sure got the black gene from her father". This was something said to my white friend about her new baby by her friend. That's just a weird thing to say.

It's hard to ask that kind of question.. People always try to guess my background.. They always end up wrong.. I get to the point where I tell them.. I know I seem to confuse them when I say I have a red headed sister and a blonde hair blue eyed niece.. And that my son was born with blonde highlights in his hair.. Then add in my Polish (maiden) last name.. lol

I don't blame them for having a hard time guessing. I'd be confused myself. lol

I bet he will have lots of hair and be adorable. But be prepared for a chance to have a hairy baby.. That was my fear with both of my kids.. Luckily, they just had lots of hair on their heads.. lol My DH niece is full Mexican and she was hairy newborn.. I'm talking hair on her back, arms,legs,etc.. Just prepared, so you won't be shocked about it..

That's ok if he's hairy I'll just invest in a waxing class so I can wax his little body at home and save money instead of making salon appointments! lol Just kidding of course! I'll love him no matter how hairy he may may be!

Nope, I've never told anyone. It never occurred to me and I'm sure it didn't occur to the people who didn't know my DH.

I've only had a few people ask and they were usually moms of mixed babies as well. Of course I always had the few ignorant comments like where did I get him? etc... It seems there's a stereotype that if you have a Black/White baby they assume you have a Black boyfriend/DH. If you have an Asian baby, you must have adopted them.

Interesting thread.

When I get pregnant, everyone will know DH is the father and that my baby will be biracial.

Everyone who knew me already knew. When it came to strangers, I only told them if they asked about the FOB.
