Re: Baby looks exactly like his older brother?

My older 2 kids a boy and a girl look nothing alike. My youngest, a boy, looks like a cross between them.

My mothers 2 boys look absolutely nothing alike. No one would guess they are full brothers. One is all white looking except for his brown eyes. He had very blond hair as a baby. So white looking that my grandparents questioned his paternity. The other has always looked Mexican. No one questioned his paternity. Funny though now the Mexican looking brother looks nothing like our dad. The white one now looks like a white version of our father. Even my step mother commented on it.

All 4 of my mothers daughters look enough alike I have had strangers come up to me and start talking to me like they have known me for years. Turns out they thought I was one of my sisters. When pregnant with my youngest I had a woman come up to me and say,"Your pregnant again? Didn't you just have a baby?" I had to laugh as my 2 youngest are 8 years apart. Turns out she thought I was my sister. Her youngest is only 13 months older than my youngest. Interestingly she has a different father but the same mother as I do.

Wow, that's crazy! It's like having twins years apart!

Re: Baby looks exactly like his older brother?

My boys look more like twins then the actual twins do.My daughter looks very similar to my stepdaughter who is 10 yrs older.I think my hubby's genes are very dominant,even though they don't look like him,he just passed down the same ones for all.

Re: Baby looks exactly like his older brother?

My boys are a year (and 2 weeks) apart and everyone has always thought they are twins. We just got that question 3x this week at a birthday party. Sometimes I have a hard time telling their baby pictures apart. They are also now the same height and weight. They also have that weird twin connection thing going on because of the close age. It is very funny.

DS1 and DS2 looked so much alike (and like me) with their golden blond hair brown eyes that I was asked if they were twins many, many times when they were 2 and 4. Then DD was born looking like her daddy with dark skin, dark brown, almost black hair. I was asked so many times if they had the same daddy. Yes, they all have the same daddy.

My sister's 3 boys looked so much alike that she thought of naming her last one Corbin. She knew I'd call him carbon copy, so she went with Caden. I still call him carbon copy.

My kids all look different. They all had different features as babies. They all have very different personalities too. Now that they are older they look like siblings and have some things that are similar but they don't look that alike.

Re: Baby looks exactly like his older brother?

Up to at least 6 months or so, all 3 of my youngest DDs look VERY much alike. They all still do, and I'm sure once they're a little older I'll get the twins questions. (They're 10 months, 28 months, and 3.5 yrs old, so they are still very different in size/stature). I often have to look at the date stamp on baby pictures because I have a hard time telling them apart!! They have the same exact hair and eye color, all 3 of them! My eyes are light brownish/amber color and DH's are a true hazel tending more green, but all the girls have beautiful BLUE eyes that look almost violet and sometimes a bit grey in different light. SO different from both me and DH, but all EXACTLY the same shade. I always wondered "What's the odds of that??"

Re: Baby looks exactly like his older brother?

My 2nd and 3rd sons look exactly alike!!!

My 1st son and 4th baby (girl) look a LOT alike.

When my mom had her 7th baby and he looked EXACTLY like his 3 older brothers, my mom said, "I'm done making duplicates!" and got her tubes tied.
