When C was born, we weren't exactly sure who he looked like. As he got older, however, it was very clear who's genes were at work - not mine! I swear, I had a hand in making him, but you'd never know it. From his long torso and short legs to his bushy eyebrows, C is the spitting image of his Dad. Its quite funny actually - even people who don't know J well or who've just met us point it out.

When C does look like my family its always my siblings, never me. Weird, huh? These are the best examples I could find without digging through old photos, but trust me. Every once in a while C will make a face that makes me go, "WHOA! Its Doug/Nick!"
My brother Doug (left) much younger than C in this pic (right), but you can see what I'm talking about.
And my other brother Nick (with my nephew).
Maybe its a little selfish to want a kid to look like you, but after 2 1/2 years of hearing about how much C looked like J, I thought it'd be nice. Then came G - my own little clone. Sure, it could change as she gets older, but for now its kind of neat.
What do you think? Do you see it? Ya know, despite my sweet 1980's mohawk.
I see it Jen and I totally know what you mean about wanting your child to look like you. I couldn't be more thrilled that Kingston is a mini me, particularly since he already had the boy thing going for Matt. I actually assumed Miles would look like me too (selfishly) but he is a mini Matt! Even though I have one that looks like me, I get jealous when people say Matt looks like my husband, like hey! He is my kid too! Lol. I hope she continues to look like you so each of you get your mini mes!ReplyDelete
I'm glad someone understands my slightly irrational desire to have a clone. HahahaDelete
I could see it right away, looking at the picture of G. She looks JUST like you! And so cute! I think you have a "mini-me" in the making!ReplyDelete
Aww G definitely looks just like you! :)ReplyDelete
