Mom & babies - picture heavy

In a previous post this week aplusa touched on creating a thread comparing photos of moms and their babies. I thought that was a brilliant idea.

Since I can't stand waiting any longer, I thought I'd start the thread. I apologize in advance if I'm stepping on anyone's internet toes. I also apologize for the HUGE photos. Resizing isn't a strength of mine.

So here are photos of Thomas, myself, and my dad. I think Thomas looks a lot like me. I also think we look a lot like my dad. I'm eager to see your photos of those you love.


Me under 6 months.

Me at about 5 months.

My dad. Thomas's grandfather.

    Blkbrd-- Crazy! He really does look just like you!!

    Babybaby- I can so see the resemblance now between Zuzu and your mom.

    Michelle - I usually disagree, but yeah -- she is not your twin. ;) I can see some similarities though!

    These are 2 that I already had on the computer. A looks more like me the older she gets but M has looked like me since birth, especially with that hair :) . 962305a2-34f3-4447-bb31-ea937f85a7cb.jpg

    K, whoa. If this were a contest, E would win!

    I always love looking at these. H looks very similar to R, but I'm not at home to fish around for pictures to prove it. A donor family and I were just comparing pictures of our kids as they get older, and there is so little resemblance because they each look so much like their moms!

    K&H -- seriously, wins the prize.

    Cory, I know this isn't the point, but YOU look so much like you at birth! Ha! Love it. And, as always, you look just like L.

    In the very beginning I thought Bailey looked exactly like me. Now I see some small features. But I mostly think she either looks like the donor or herself.

    Me and Willow at age six and me and Judah at age 22 months. Willow looks a little but like me, I guess, but Judah doesn't at all except possibly for his hair color! They are genetically full siblings, but I don't think they look like each other at all either.

    I'm sure these pictures are going to be giant...I'm sorry, I can't figure out how to resize using the photobucket mobile app and it's too much of a pain on my phone!

    I don't know, Horton, I see a lot of similarities. But, I feel the same way Shauna feels. I think as they get older I am seeing the boys look more like their own little people.
