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?)
