Everyone comments at how much my 2 children are a like – But then they say how much my daughter looks like me and my son looks like his dad. Anyone else have similar or do you think people say these things to make us feel better that the bub looks like us?

  • I think indeed that different people see different things

  • Our kids have things of both of us.

  • All my kids look very much like their dad. I’m not sure I got a look in at all!

  • I always get comments that my youngest daughter looks so much like her Grandmother

  • My son was the spitting image of me when he was a baby but has now grown into a 50/50 mix of us. My daughter is hubby all over though.

  • I think different people see different things. I don’t think my kids look like either of us, but I’ve had others comment they’re like me and others still say they’re like they’re dad

  • I think people pick up on different features. Sometimes I can easily see a resemblance between children and their parents, and sometimes I can’t.

  • I think people are more inclined to see the person they know best in babies. I got so many lookalikes for my kids from different people, yet I can’t see me or their dad in either of them

  • My daughter looked exactly like me until she hit puberty. Now she looks more like her Dad.
