well every1 says my daughter looks like me but i think that is because of her skin tone and blue eyes until we went on holiday to st lucia to c her other family then we realised she is a minnie version of her grandma but with white skin.

I can't tell with my son tbh!
Some days he looks just like me, others just like his dad.
It's a really strong mix between us both I guess :)

lol.. when my son was born he looked exactly like my fiance's brother when he was born!! Then he was his dad's clone and now at 18months I can see more of my features in him (FINALLY... ) But his main features like nose and eyes are his fathers, so everyone says he looks exactly like him!
Oh! He does have my curly dark brown hair though, but for some reason when people see him they say "oh he must have his fathers hair!" And I'll be there... with my dark curly brown hair givin' them a look like what are you on? My fiance is dark but his hair (when he didn't shave his head) was straight/wavy black. People are weird lol

People comment how my daughter looks a lot more like her father than me, although when she was first born, she looked a lot like me - she's nearly two and I can see both of us in her. She's got his brows, hair colour (curls and waves from me), and gorgeous lip shape from my partner (which he got from his father). However, she has a lovely olive skin colour whereas I'm tanned (Asian) and her father is Australian white (though he looks tanned brown if he spends a lot of time in the sun).
With our son, I get plenty of people saying he looks alot like me esp. his big dark brown eyes. He's got lighter skin though but I'm sure he'll get some colour once he spends more time outside as he's only 3 months old now. Other facial features are like mine too - nose, brows, ears, but he's also got his father's and sisters' lips.

With my boys everyone says they look like their daddy, which at first glance they do. I have blond hair, blue eyes, their dad has black hair and brown eyes, plus he's mexican so he's darker too. The boys both have brown hair and brown eyes. I personally think they get their brown hair from me, since its not black like their dads. The brown eyes definitely comes from daddy as well as their skin tone. But I think the boys have a lot of my physical features. They both have my eye shape which is bigger than their dads, and my lips. Their dad doesn't always agree with me on this though, and either does most of his family. They all think they look exactly like him, except his sister, she says that if I ever had a brother that is what they would look like. But there is one thing we never fight over that they got from me, and that's their feet! Me, my mom, and the boys all have the exact same short stubby feet lol

My daughter looks like me and her dad. We both have light skinand dark hair...she has my brown eyes,not hazel-green like daddy. she has my family's chin, my eyes/eyebrows, his ears, toes and body structure (I was a fat baby, he was long and skinny), and my hair type. She has his nose and my lips. She looks like her own person...she isnt all me or all him.

My daughter looks exactly like my husband. She is his little mini me. The only difference is that she is closer to my skin color and her hair is my texture, just extremely curly. Everyone always says, wow she looks nothing like you. Sometimes it makes me a little upset but I just tell them that she may look like her daddy, but she acts just like me :-)

My little guy looks just like his daddy!! I'm almost tired of hearing people say it...his daddy is very handsome though! :-) He's got my smile and that's about it. I always say he looks like his daddy but he's got my spitfire/stubborn personality. LOL...sometimes I wish it was opposite!

When my daughter was born, she was a spitting image of me. As she's gotten older, when I look at baby pictures of me, I still think she looks a lot like me. Her complection is almost right in the middle of my hubby and I. A lot of other people say that she looks like my hubby, but if you look at his baby pictures, I don't see it. As she's gotten older, I see a lot more similariaties to him. She's got his eyes, and ears, my mouth, and my mother-in-law's nose. We'll see once she get's more hair. She doesn't have that much hair right now, and that can really change the way a person looks. She's a perfect mixture of us both.

You can tell he is both of ours. His complexion is much closer to mine, although still noticeably darker than me, and he has soft, red hair but his facial features and eye color are his dad's.

None of my children look like me...lol! My 9 yr old son has my eyes and thats about it. My oldest looks just like his uncle down to the gap in his teeth, my second looks just like his dad, my third the older girl looks just like her aunt they even have the same raspy voice, and my youngest she looks just like her dad she even has the same pin hole on her ear just like her dad. I just carried them and gave birth...lol! Its so funny though My boys are by one dad and the girls by another but my 9yr old son and 6 year old daughter look alot alike, but they have different dads interesting huh!

I expected my son to look more like me but he looks so much like my husband it's insane. I found a picture of my husband around the same age as my son and they could be the same person except the eyecolor. I am black, white, and fillipino and my husband is white. Our son has blue eyes and blonde hair.

If they mirror the behavior of God, then we have succeeded and hopefully their external appearance will not matter as much. But this is a fallen world....

She looked a lot like me at birth, but as she is getting darker she looks more and more like her daddy, she has his eyes,nose, and i think ears, and my chin and cheeks....she also has pouty lips like her sister (boyfriends daughter with an ex).

I don't really know. I'd guess more like me. He has my skin tone eyes eyebrows and hair but I've never seen his dad's photos when he was 4 or in kindergarten. So it could be that he looks like his dad too matters really

Defiantly his father….

He’s a shade lighter then his father, very slanted eyes…same shape head as his fathers brother, and has his Korean grandfathers ears….

So far the only thing I see that he has of me is the gap he will have when his teeth do come in…

The gap is hereditary on my fathers side…its kinda like Madonna’s
