  • My oldest has autism, so it's hard to tell personality but he looks just like his dad. My 2nd son looks and acts just like me. My daughter looks like me except blond hair but acts like my sister (very tempestuous! drama queen). My youngest, we don't know about yet - he's only 9 months.

  • our son has parts of both of us...but for the most part, I think he's about 97% Daddy, lol.

    he's a happy, active baby but is also very stubborn. he's pretty independent and easily amused and entertained and loves to laugh and also LOVES to eat =). he's playful and loving and loves to cuddle =).

    I think he's a perfect combination.

  • My son is exactly like my husband,
    My 3 yr old daughter is exactly like me, but with his temper,
    And we haven't figured out our 9mo old daughter yet.

  • Our dd looks mostly like her dad, but the 'me' in her makes her As far as personality, I think it is a combination of both of us. From daddy: stubborn, argumentive, grumpy, talks a lot and asks too many questions. From me: silly at times, sassy, drama queen.

  • My dh is deployed yet she still shows both his and my personality. She is very laid back like I am but is very social like he is! It's crazy how she picked that up so quickly!

  • shes a mix of us both
    Looks- My brown hair, DH blue eyes, my nose, DH lips...DH family feet..
    ---At dd age 6mo-she LOOKS EXACTLY like my MIL at 6mo....
    --At age 3 she looks EXACTLY like ME! .... odd..
    Personality- a temper like me, bullheaded like her father, very sensitive feelings like me, dramatic like her father..

    She is super social & outgoing.. not like us-- im very shy & DH is just a chilled type person..
    All i can think of right now
