Does your LO look like their older sibling?

My boys look so much alike and are so close in age that I am wondering if people will think they are twins sometimes down the line.

Here is YDS last week:

Here is ODS at the same age:

Really the only difference I can see is the eye color. ODS were a vibrant blue at 2 months, and they still are a bright blue color. YDS has a more muted blue color that I imagine will eventually turn to my hazel (green/gold) color.

Edited to add my blog post on this: http://routhierfam.blogspot.com/

well, my first 2 looked nothing alike. She looks like her daddy(almost identical, pictures of him and her at 9 months!) and he looks like me.

This one looks like her daddy, with my blue eyes. And she kind of looks like her big sis too, which is weird, since they both look like their daddy's and their daddy's look NOTHING alike.

And people think my ds is my dh's son all of the time!! LOL

The first words out of the midwife's mouth after DD was born was "She looks just like (DS)!!" And I've been hearing it from everyone else ever since! LOL If you compare her to DS's newborn pictures it almost looks like the same baby, except for some more feminine features in DD.

DD1 and DD2 looked a lot alike as babies, they are 6 and 2 now. You can tell they are sisters certainly but they have developed some different features. DS has the same eyes and nose as the girls so apparently all my children will be easy to spot as being from the same sibling set.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

yes, in a way. if you take off the double chins they look identical (if you don;t take size into a factor - he's the weight and length of her at 4 months)

: Mother (4/11/06) to Josephine and (4/23/09) to Oliver and baby (due June 1st)

Babies: Angel (6/29/02), Tiberius (3/8/11), Lillianna (12/27/11)

Baby Maezey looks more like DD1 than DD2. She has dark hair and dark eyes like her, but her skin colour is more in between my 2 daughters.
Some people say that she looks like DD2, but I just don't see it at all.

VERY similar... DD is on a slower growth curve, so she doesn't have the Winston Churchill cheeks and jowls he did at this age, but still very similar... except her hair is darker...

Christian wife, busy happy mama to 4yo DS, 3yo DD, 15mo DS, and #4, expected next spring!

Funny, DH and I were just talking about this yesterday. Zoe and Dmitri are 14 months apart, and everyone always asks if they're twins. But Dmitri has his daddy's body type (stocky) and Zoe has mine (she's lanky and thin.. which I was until I hit puberty!) William looked JUST like DH, but he had more Zoe/my body type - long limbs. Funny how things turn out when you make genetic soup, isn't it?

Autumn (1990) Blake (1993) Zoe (2001) Dmitrios (2002) and William (April 2009) born still @ 39 wks - my 4ever

genetic soup, I like that... dd1 and LO look sooo much alike as babes. I made a smilebox for DH fathers day and had to write their names so DH would know who was who, especially since they were born in exact same seasons,only one day apart!

There is a resemblance between the two, but the eyes are completely different. DS2 is the spitting image of DH! It's really obvious when we look at baby pics or video of DH - it's unbelievable! SO funny, it was the first thing I said when I they placed DS2 on my chest. I was so expectign him to look just like DS1 and he did not really - he looked just like DH to me. I exclaimed "Oh my god, DH, he looks just like you!!!" First words out of my mouth. Dh couldn't see it at the time, he was like "really???" but he does now.

DS1 on the other hand very strongly resembles me - he has my eyes and brow bone ... my forehead and eyes ... but I think his lower area, i.e. his jaw and mouth are DH

Ds3 (child #4) looks identical to his brother ds1.

Ds2 is the most different kid i have. He has bright blue eyes when no one else has them.

I need to get a picture of all 5 kiddos in one link, BEFORE the signature disable links.

OT disclaimer:
I'm just so busy and going through a crisis right now. Don't worry, I will survive this.
