Who's Your Daddy?

Ok, so here's a boatload of pictures. But, here's the thing. Ever since Cash was born, I have heard the following, "Wow, he looks just like Ryan and nothing like you." "Are you sure you're the mother?" "Wow, the first successful human clone!" ETC.

So this Christmas when we were at home, we happened to look at some of our baby pictures, both mine and Ryan's. And I must say, I had a faint glimmer of hope that perhaps there was some genetic transfer from me to my child. While I agree - I think that Cash looks like Ryan does now, I almost think he looks more similar to me when I was his age - or at least that there is a combination of both Ryan and me. I definitely see the hair - besides mine being blond and his brown (and if I let his grow out more), he has the curl just at the very ends like mine did; Ryan's was curly all over. Plus I had a more lean build like Cash. Ryan was a fattie. And I was surprised to recognize some of his expressions and mannerisms that looked like mine.

Anyway, so here's some pictures since people are always asking if Ryan looked just like Cash when he was his age. Of course, it's hard to see in just a few random pictures, but for those of you who know us well and have seen Cash more, you may be able to see that I really think we both made this child! (Sorry some of the spacing is weird - does anyone else have trouble formatting this thing like they want?)

Pictures of me (ending with red and white dress, then pictures of Cash):

He does look a lot like you as a baby and not much like Ryan. Man Ryan was fat. Maybe Ryan really is a Condie. I'm pretty sure he was running right along with them in the morning to the milk bucket to scrape the cream of the top. I posted to reply on my comments. Thanks for the info I really need it. I have no clue what I am doing when it comes to dyeing my hair. You should see the looks they gave me at the salon when I asked them to do it.

I got the same comments with Todd and Hailee. As she gets older I think she looks a little more like me.

I loved seeing you and Ryan as babies! You were both darling babies, and so is Cash.

Wow, that's funny. He really does look like you. It will be fun to compare over the years...will he be his midget friend's bodyguard in 2nd grade? :)

Is Ryan wearing a dress in one of those pictures?!?! Lovely!!

Jenilee said...

What fun pictures. Thanks for sharing. Cash does look like you Jen, how fun.

Yeah, Cash does look like you when you were little - but a lot like Ryan looks now. Cute pictures.

Everyone always says Jacob & Jane look like me and Emily looks like Rick. EVERYONE says that, but Rick can't see it - he doesn't think Em looks like him.

It is fun to see how they turn out. Some things I'm so happy they got from one of us or the other, and some, I'm sad to have passed on!
