Does your baby look like you thought he/she would?

I had my baby 12 wks. ago and I have to say, she looks way different than I thought she would! My DH and I are both of mixed race, but I'm shocked at how much she looks like my side of the family. Are you surprised at how your baby looks?

  • I imagined this little boy who would look just like me! Splitting image! hahaha You can't even tell he is my child. Looks just like my husband, though. Seriously, if I walked into the nursery at the hospital, no one would know I was his mom. Luckily he stayed the whole time with me so no one could accuse him of not being mine. Luckily my husband isn't the ugliest guy I've ever met. hahahaha

  • Yeah, my son looked exactly like me (when I was born/young infant)... I'd be able to spot him in a nursery full of babies even if I've never seen him! It was pretty neat. But now that he is older, he looks like me, his father, his grandpa, and his uncle Matt... so a combo baby.
