The Jury is Out!!

Now I am sure most of you have the comments from people about who your kids look like and if you are like me I just smile and say "you think so?" or just give a little laugh. I have become somewhat jaded by it all because most people want to remind me that my kids look nothing like me. Well I believed it too until my son was born and my husband was the first to notice that James looks more like me and my side of the family. While I don't need my kids to look like me, I have to say I was excited that my genes do in fact work :). Anyway after James was born people have still been saying that he looks nothing like me and so I figured maybe my husband was just being nice when he said that James looked like me, and then we pulled out the baby pictures! So let's see what you think, I posted pics of all three of my kids and baby pics of Jimmy and I. Go ahead tell me the truth I can handle it :)

Oh and just for those that don't know who is who, I am the one with Santa, jimmy is the one in the middle in the red. Grace is in the green with no hair, James is being held by Jimmy and my sweet Lexi is the one with all the dark hair.

To tell the truth I have a hard time telling who newborns look like. But I have to say that I think Grace looks exactly like you. Do people not tell you that all the time? I'm surprised if they don't. I know what you mean about wanting your child to look like you. Everybody instantly said, "She's a little Tom." And while I agreed, I still wanted her to look like me. Sorry I'm not much help with James, but I really do think Grace looks a lot like you.

He totally looks like you from looking at the baby pictures. You both even have a similar expession on your face. And as for the other 2 I think that Alexis looks like a dark version of you and Grace looks like her Daddy.
I also know how you fill though. Here we are, Mothers that carry these beautiful babies for 40 weeks, going through sickness, pain, lack of sleep, peeing all the time, and at the end of it all birth. All for them to come out looking like everyone else in the family, but you!! Although Jaden and Owen are blondies, a lot of their stronger characteristics are their fathers. And Bradley is the spitting image of John

I think Grace looks like you. As for James, I don't know yet - I'll have to wait till I see him in person next month. Can't wait!

I am really awful at being able to tell who looks like who, but I will say that James 12 week pic looks like some old pics that I have of Jack so I think he takes after the Holler family for sure.
