I'm absolutely gutted everyone I see and speak t say my babies both look like their dad. They are both the double of each other (son is 3, daughter is 8months) they have blonde hair blue eyes. Something me and their dad don't have. I'm just gutted they have nothing of me. I don't know if it's a primal feeling as they both have his last name. So I'm the odd one out. They have his features. And his name. (I love their daddy very much, we have been together forever) I guess Id just like to see something of myself in them. They are both absolutely beautiful so I don't wish them to change. I dunno just a little pfft.
I think it can change as they get older. When ds was smaller everyone said she looked like her dad. Now everyone says she looks like me. She totally has her dads personality though and people dont notice that so much. Ds looks like his dad. I am fare skinned but they both have olive skin and dark hair. His personality is much more like me though.
My wee one looked really like her dad as a newborn, but now she is almost identical to me at her age. People can't tell pictures of us apart. It helps that my oh and I look slightly similar (we are both short with blue eyes and we were both really blonde as kids) - my wee one has my face shape but my Ohs eyes and mouth/chin area, my nose and my small ears.
What's you kids personalities like? Although in looks she is very much my double, in personality she is more like her dad already!
Mine are a mix I think. My kids are lucky to have their dads lovely olive skin, but I think their features are more me. Certain expressions are definitely their Dad. It doesn't bother me at all who they look like, they're soneone we both creates and they're their own little individual person.
My children definitely have their own characters. I just gt a little upset when people (it happens Alot) say they are the double of their dad. Im so proud and happy and out of this world blessed to have two healthy happy beautiful children. I step back and think wow I actually made them. With a little help of course. But they grew in me. I gave birth to them. Why can't I see any if me in them??
My kids are half Chinese (I am white) so I often get told that they favour their dad. But they do change and go through periods of time where they look more like me or my side of the family (I personally feel my son favours me while my daughter favours my husband). It also depends on the person I'm talking to. Most of hubby's family naturally see themselves in my children (including my son's curly hair )
