Mom or Dad?

The whole time I was pregnant we joked round about how Eli would come out looking exactly like Luke. It only seemed obvious that Luke's dark features would take over and we would have a brown eyed, dark haired baby. And it seemed that it was confirmed when the ultrasound tech claimed to have seen a baby in my womb with a head full of hair.

So imagine our shock and amusement when that baby came out with blue eyes and light (almost blonde) hair. When Eli was first born everybody said he looked just like me, but as time has gone on more people say they think he looks like Luke.

When I was home for Christmas I got a picture of Luke as a baby so I thought it would be fun to do a picture comparison. I tried to get pictures of us from around the same age.

Here is Eli:



Then Luke:

Then Me:

What do you think?

He looks SO much like you!!! Crazy :)
And you all were so cute as babies... adorable!

Jen said...

I can see Luke a little but think he looks so much like you!

My little Indian baby was supposed to have my dark, thick hair and dark eyes too. However, he has crystal blue eyes, lighter skin, and hair that is gradually getting darker. And! Everyone said he looked like his daddy at first but now everyone says he is looking like his momma... Eli looks like Luke to me. I just love little Eli's picture because they remind me so much of Wyatt. It's that quarter Indian in them! Haha :)

Whitney said...

YOU. I've always thought that!

Savannah said...

I think he is a good combination of both of you. Such cute baby photos!

Kaitlin said...

I think he looks so much like you! He has the outline of Luke's eyes, though! Simply adorable!

Juani said...

He is definitely a 'blender baby'.50% you (your coloring) and 50% his papa (except for the coloring and the amount of hair,he looks just like Luke!).

Either way,he's absolutely adorable!

YOU. Both of you were so cute. Luke still looks EXACTLY the same as he did as a baby!

katie@tulsadetails said...

I think he looks so much like you! Also, could Luke as a baby look any more like he does now??? Too funny! I would recognize him as a baby anywhere!

Ashley said...

You!! Definitely! And Luke's baby picture had me laughing out loud!! It's so adorable! His hair is still the same style!! :)

R said...

First off you have one of the most adorable babies out there. And no, I don't say that to everyone. There are funny looking kids out there.

Second, I think from baby pics alone he looks more like Luke.

Ashley W said...

He's a perfect mix. So cute!

Welcome! said...

I think he looks just like you! :)

Taylor said...

I think he is a perfect mixture of both of you. Definitely see Luke's nose and mouth, but complexion and eyes are you! He's just such a doll!!!

Courtney said...

I think he is a perfect mix of you guys. Your hair and eyes for sure! Lukes smile.

Noelle said...

He is super cute that is for sure!! I used to think he looked so much like you, but after seeing Luke's baby pic I think he looks a lot like Luke too. Definitely a good mix!

Classy Fab Sarah said...

He has your coloring but I think the shape of his face/eyes/nose look so much like Luke! Either way, he's GORGEOUS. Stop giving me baby fever, I am NOT in the position to have a baby right now. Especially since I'm not married.

Alex and Jill said...

I think he looks like his Mama!! :) He's so stinkin' cute.

Perfectly Imperfect said...

I say Luke's eyes, but all the rest is you. He is just plain precious that's for sure :)

Rachel said...

I think he definitely looks like Luke, but without all the dark hair!! He's one cute baby boy!

Sara said...

I think his eyes are Luke's but everything else looks like you. Such a doll!!!

Kate said...

I think he looks just like you! Maybe with Luke's eyes. Eli is such a cutie!

Stolen by Mullen said...

Looks like you!

Amy said...

i say luke's eye shape, but the rest is all you! both me and jeffrey are dark haired, olive complected, and brown-eyed. but libbi has blonde hair, fair skin, and super blue eyes! we got so used to the way she looked that when we had another baby that actually looked like us we it seemed so strange - haha! genetics are a funny and unpredictable thing :)
either way, eli is a cutie

Laura said...

I think he looks like Luke from the nose down. :)
