When she was first born she had his eyes, but they are turning brown and seem bigger thank god, more like mine. That was one thing that upset me, looking into her eyes and seeing him, but at the same time when dealing with a split, I guess it could be a bit of a comfort too in a way, I don't know, although everyone now says she looks like me.
I think my boy looks more like me. But there are days when I look at him and he is FOB, especially his nose and deep set eyes. He keeps changing. I think it will really show when he is a grown man I suppose.
Other then being tall, my daughter looks nothing like me. She used to be the image of my ex, but as she gets older I think she looks like her own person. It doens't bug me. I have come to a place where I can be happy for past marriage because it produced my daughter.
I'm always told how you can tell they're mine they're my doubles. If I look at photos of me at their age and each other at the same age you can't tell any of us apart, other than my youngest is the only one with blue eyes (even FOB doesn't have blue eyes)..And to add to it we were all born the exact same birth weight I was given a photobook for my 21st birthday with all pictures right from my birth through my life and it included pics of the boys and even I had to take a few minutes to tell us apart
People have looked at pics of both FOBs and my LO and can't find a single thing similar. The only people that try to see things the same are FOB. But even he's remarked saying OMG it was like looking at Jade then.
Maria looked exactly like FOB when she was born but now she looks much more like me, though she still has his mouth. I've never really thought about it bugging me or anything, the bit that does look like him til my OH said that he's so glad that she doesn't have FOB's eyes and I realise I am really glad too.
