I see the resemblance

Do people ever ask you which parent your kid looks like? I get that question from time to time, usually about Quinn’s blonde hair, since Ben’s and my hair is pretty dark. Quinn got his blue eyes from me, but otherwise I tend to think he looks a lot like Ben. While I was in Iowa at my parents’ house though, I dug out a few baby pictures of myself and holy cow! There is certainly a resemblance between Quinn and little-me! Apparently we even make the same goofy faces.:)

And these next two photos crack me up. When my dad got out the green sled for Quinn, I laughed and said the sled must be almost thirty years old, and sure enough! I found a picture of me in the same sled in the same position on my parents’ driveway when I was just a little bit older than Quinn is now. Some of the neighbors’ houses have been painted but not much else has changed!

Here are side-by-side baby pictures of Ben, Quinn, and me. I guess Quinn looks a little bit like both of us, which is, after all, probably just how it’s supposed to work! What do you think?

That blonde hair though? It definitely comes from Ben. Look at him! I just love this picture of him and his dad. So adorable.

Genetics are a fascinating thing, aren’t they? And have you seen Irina Werning’s perfectly recreated childhood photos? Maybe I need to give that a try!
