When DD was a newborn she was the spitting image of me as a newborn. As she gets older everyone says she looks like her daddy, except she has my blue eyes (OH has green eyes so her eye color could still change to green). I don't mind at all, except OH has a bit of a big nose so I silently hope she grows up to have my nose!

I know there still growing and will eventually take on an individual look of their very own. I get asked if I'm looking after a friends children. and once when my son was in hospital long before my youngest was born, I was asked when mum would be arriving, people looked shocked when I say they are my children. I guess this is where my original annoyance stems from.

Everyone says that my son is my husband's twin. I don't see it but I'll take their word for it. My daughter doesn't look like either of us... she looks like she could be the sister of one of my nieces (my sister's kids)

Both mine have blonde hair blue eyes and pale skin like their grandma and nana! I am their opposite as I have olive skin dark brown eyes and dark hair haha neither of mine look like me really my dd has my horrible fine hair bless her and that's about it she actually looks more like my mum! And my ds looks like his dad. I love my babies but would love 1 more in a few years with my new partner and would love a child with my olive skin and dark brown eyes but I know I may not get it but feel blessed to have beautiful children.

Haha Awww!!! That happens to me all the time too! I just think it's so funny- doesn't bother me much but it sure shows there's no safety in "assuming" relationships. Not that long ago I agreed to take my friends kiddos to the store (they look like me because brown hair/green eyes) and I had two people point to them and say something like "aww they look just like you! How sweet!" And then "and who's that cute little blondie??".... Meaning MY daughter!!!

Genetics are funny!! Plus kids change sooooo much over time...! As said, DD looks just like DH - spitting image, but now we can see her features changing into her own

OP - Do your little ones ACT like you, despite looking like their dad? That's my problem! DD may be carbon copy of DH but unfortunately she acts bossy like me

Haha actually both my little ones have my temper, and patience (or lack of) but then they are always with me. They go to work with me, wake up and spend half of day with me before work. Come home with me, make tea with me, bathed by me. So I'm not at all surprised they are that way like me.

My ml brought out baby photos and adolescent photos of my oh. He is strikingly alike my son. It's spooky. My little girl is now one. She is taking more of her own look. Beautiful soft girly features. I've had some friends say she has my smile and eyes. Which I love to hear. She's just so beautiful. Both my babies are perfect. Of course I am biased but they rli are beautiful.

My older children look really like DH especially DD1. And I think DS2 looks like my brother so more my side but not really like me. Our youngest is very like me and almost identical in baby pics. However according to all of DHs family ALL of our children look exactly like DH? Yet they all look different. I just usually say something like 'people tend to see what they want to see' but it used to really infuriate me x

Everyone says my ds looks like dh. I've never really seen it though. He's got my colouring and certainly has my temperament (try arguing with a 3yo version of yourself - it's not fun!). TBH he's gorgeous so I don't think it matters who he looks like as the person he most looks like is himself!

Both of my dds have gone through different stages where they either look more like my dh, me, or other family members. I understand about people not thinking your babies are yours. My close friend is black/irish and her ds dad is very fair skinned with blue eyes. Her son got his coloring and eyes so when we would go places people would ask if her ds was mine! Shed always make it a joke but i knew it really did hurt her.

DD1 looks like me and DD2 looks like DD1 but not like me. I used to see OH in DD2 when she was younger but she's always looked like her sister from the second she was born.
