  • His side will say the baby looks like him.
    Your side will say the baby looks like you. Or the grandparents. This goes on until they are 21.

  • Congrats on your new baby! Don't worry. Those hormones will level out soon.

  • Too small a thing to get ramped up about, as far as I am concerned.

  • Take a deep breath and chill out. If that's the worst thing your mother-in-law ever does, you're a lucky woman.

  • everyone in my dh's family goes on and on how my son looks like my fil...I just smile and nod, the kid looks nothing like my fil. He is my little mini me. If I had short hair when I was a kid, we'd look like twins lol If it makes them feel better, whatever, it doesn't bother me

  • Every one always says my oldest looks like me, but when you look at baby pictures of my son they actually look more alike, and every one always says our second son looks like my husband, but when you look at baby pictures he actually looks exactly like my uncle, even my grandmother was amazed at how much he looed like her baby.
