  • I'm sorry about that! Unfortunately, you can't change genetics. It's the way his all fell together while you were carrying him. That really does suck though! You never know, maybe when he gets older he'll start to look more like you.

  • my son looks like his db dad. Nothing like me. He has black hair and hazel eyes. In fact, he is the only one in my family that has black hair. He may look like his db dad but he has my intelligence and personality..thank goodness he got the important features from me.

  • My nephew looked just like his mom when he was born, and now looks like a mirror image of his father now that he's older. Perhaps the same will happen here in reverse!

  • yeah, can't change how he looks. In my case it's funny because my daughter is the only one without blue eyes. All my boys have blue eyes. So when we go places people think that my boyfriend is her bio father because they both have brown eyes. She actually looks like her dad who is my ex husband.
