second babies?

so im just woundering how many of you had second or even third children and they looked toatally different from one another?
My SIL just had her second boy today and he looks nothing like his older brother. HIs older brother was bald and what little peach fuzz he had was blonde blonde with blue eyes. This little guy cuttier then can be is got a head full of dark brown hair. lol its so weird how they look so different.

I expect my second child to look different then his older brother cuz its a different father but thats not the case with her.

  • My siblings and I look the same in the face, but some of us are blonde with blue eyes and some have brown with brown eyes. All of our kids seem to go the same way...look the same in the face but with different hair and eyes.

  • My sons look NOTHING a like. They are 2 years apart. My oldest looks identical to my husband and my youngest looks like me.

  • I have known several that look totally different. My DH has 3 siblings with the same father, and they all are totally different, 2 with blonde hair (even though both parents have very dark brown hair), and 2 with very straight hair (even though both parents have very very curly hair) It is one blond curly, one dark curly, one blond straight, one dark straight. All have slightly different eye colors, but still in the blueish greenish family.

  • My daughter looked just like my oldest son when she was born, but now my oldest now looks a lot like DH and my daughter looks just like I did as a preschooler.
    My youngest son looks nothing like either of them. He favors my side of the family, but he has much darker skin and hair than the older two.

  • Mine are fairly similar, but my sister and I were very different. She had a full head of curly dark hair and I had only blond fuzz. My mom and her sisters have three different hair colors - red, blond, and dark brunette.

  • I am pregnant with my second, but my husbands niece just had a baby girl and she could've passed as our sons twin. So I am thinking his genes are really strong and our second will look just like our first. But I have 4 months left to find out. :)
