Do your kids or kiddos look like you or Dh/So, etc....?

I have to say for sure my Ds looks like me - but what is weird is he looks even more like my sister when you compare baby photos...but anyway...here is a picture of me at about the same age as a picture of Ds. As I *think* you can see....it is pretty obvious without even seeing Dh's baby picture that he resembles me. I don't think I even have a baby pic of Dh on the computer...but believe me, they look nothing like. Dh has blond hair for one, but just bigger features overall. I wonder if Ds will continue to resemble me this strongly always...or if it might shift as he grows. It's fun to watch it unfold though!

I've never seen DH when he was little. His mother has all of the pictures and they haven't spoken in about 16 years. I think DS looks a lot like me though.

Me when I was little

He definitely got my hair

Kailey is my twin and Nola looks a LOT like Josh's mother's side of the family... She looks a lot like Josh's grandmother. She has Josh's eyes and temperment (which I said throughout my whole pregnancy she would) and she has Josh's hair color and texture.

Oh all your children are beautiful ladies!

Here's Phoenix and I at Christmas 08. I don't have any pics of me as a child, they're at my parents house. I think Phoenix is a mini me.


Here's Lincoln, I think he kinda looks like me, but has a lot of DH in him

It looks to me from these pics that Noe looks like you the most & the other two resemble Dh.... They are darling anyway, so I suppose it doesn't matter! Your Nana is a hottie too! Geesh!

She does look a lot like you - but it does also seem that Phoenix & Lincoln seem to have the same eyes. For the passer-by it will probably be easier to see their resemblance more as Lincoln gets a little bigger. I think it can be hard to tell sometimes who a baby will end up resembling....

I get comments that they look like me and sometimes that they look like DH. I had random people comment to me when Abby was a baby "She must look like her father, because she doesn't look like you!" Now they say she looks like me, but people also say that Anna and Abby look alike, and I don't see it (maybe it's because I'm the mom).


DH and I


Abigail


Anna

I'll get some baby pictures scanned and uploaded later today to compare to.

I think my boys look most like their father, but they do have some of my family too.
But the 2 are complete doubks of eachother. Click on my profile and you'll see a pic of the two. But at the same ages theya re identical. The whole estate says Ian is Billy's twin all over again ( we lost his twin in early pg ).
Beck your son is very very like you, blondie, your genes must have kicked your dh's out of the pool because she is defiantely your double.
Gina - do you not think your son shows alot of your Nana?

Kayla looks like DH and Karrigan looks like me.

Scary thing is my brother and his SO had their 4th (a girl) April second, Karrigan was May 14th, and the 2 of them look very much the same

My oldest also has a lot of the same looks as their oldest DD.

My boys look nothing like me, I don't think so anyway. I don't have any baby pictures of myself or dh scanned but from looking at dh's baby pictures they are all Daddy. Everyone always says that my boys look exactly alike and actually every single time we go out at least one person asks if they are twins. I know they look similar but as they get older I think they look less and less alike.

I think that Reese looks similar to me, but Kennedy is kinda a mixture. She looks a little like my mom but with darker hair.

Here's Kennedy.


And Reese.


And me sans makeup a couple weeks after I had Reese (so its an older pic...lol)

I don't have any of DH's or my baby pics around, but Lily looks a lot like him. We saw one of his baby pics a few months ago and it was like they are twins. She does have light eyes and lighter skin though, but otherwise she resembles him way more then me.

Here's some pics of them:
