a little like mom, a little like dad

August 27th, 2014


For my baby shower, my mom and Chad’s mom pulled out a dozen pictures of us at various stages of our childhoods — but from minute one, I was captivated by our three-month shots.  Now that Bear is that same age, I couldn’t resist grabbing those photos and seeing who he resembles more.

And the answer is… neither. 

Am I right?

I’m on the left at three months old, Chad is on the right.  Our little guy is clearly way more beautiful than either of us were as babies — but truthfully, I’m not sure he looks much like either one of us! 

What do you guys think?  Do you see any resemblance?

    He’s the perfect combination of both of you! All your baby posts make me consider having one.

    I see your eyes and Chad’s mouth. When my daughter was born I swore she was a clone of my husband, now that she’s almost one (!!!) I see her “growing in to” looking more like a true mixture of us both. Its amazing how genes work, isn’t it?

    He is definitely cuter than those pictures of both of you. He is gorgeous! You’re not just being a biased mom–he is cute, and yeah, cuter than you guys probably were as babies…haha.

    But I feel like those baby pictures don’t actually look that much like you guys. Bear looks like both of you. I agree with Leslie who said he has your eyes and Chad’s mouth or lower half (even more so than Chad’s own baby picture, IMO–that picture looks wider than his actual face.)

    Alexander looks like both of us but Athena often looks like neither of us, in my opinion. She oddly looks like pictures of my mom as a baby, though! It’s uncanny.

    I think Bear is IDENTICAL to you!

    He is so cute! I think he looks like you NOW, but not like your baby picture. Hope that makes sense!
