This is a spin off from the HAPA thread. I figured hey, all multiracial kids tend to be gorgeous so let's have another show-off-our-babies thread!

My little one is half Scottish (me) and half Dominican (DP)

She's the cutest ever!
here's one with me:

Um..........did I say something taboo? All the parents of Hapa babies were happy to show off, so I figured the rest of us would be too??????????

Does this link work? If so, you can see lots of different combinations in here:

This picture has Venezuelan (mestizo) DH, gringa me, Venezuelan-American DD plus my AA/irish cousin, her Italian hubby, and their little cutie.

this is my family:
DH is Welsh and Filipino (with a little Ecuadorian somewhere), I'm completely unknown white :
This picture was at less than a week old, the baby has gotten much more golden since and is now darker than me (he was rather pink there, which turned to jaundice and then cleared up)

here's babe alone, about a week and a half old:

Everyone's families are so beautiful! I'm too inept and impatient to really get this right, but here's my effort at adding DD and me to the mix:

Thank you.

The way she looks has been the topic of many people's conversations, especially when her hair is down (it is really straight). I also get a lot of "You're so pale, she's so dark, how is that possible?" as well as the endless speculations about her ethnicity (most go with Indian).

Everyone's children are so beatiful.

Here's another one...

I posted some pics in my blog so you can see my three darlings. My oldest is the darkest and each kid got lighter and lighter. I posted a pic of my DP too so you sneak a peek at him. Pic of me is in the profile on the right of the blog page.
