So let me first off say that I think dd is just perfect the way she is and I wouldn't trade her for the world. I'm a light skinned mixed Latin woman. Dd1 that was stillborn looked exactly like me, as did ds. So I naturally assumed this Lo would look the same. My ex is a darker skinned latin but evidently he has weaker genes. He has a dd with another woman and she looks more like her mom too. So when G was born I was a bit shocked that she was so dark. I think she's beautiful but I'm still taken back by this. I was so not expecting it. She def has her dads coloring. I think what bothers me is that I see him in her, not so much the actual skin color. Anyway, when will I get over this shock? When we did the newborn photos he photographer even asked me if my kids had the same father. Besides that being a totally rude question i get why she asked. I'm light skinned so is ds and here comes this beautiful tanned baby... Anyone else go through this? I'm afraid it's only the beginning of peoples assumptions they are from different fathers. I don't want her to grow up thinking she is different or has something wrong. She is also showing signs that she may have green eyes which is gorgeous but again ds and I have brown eyes. Am I making to big a deal about this?
