That Age-Old Game: Who Does Baby Look Like?

Andrew is 6 months old tomorrow. Instead of the usual hysterical Oh-No-My-Baby-Is-Growing-Up-Too-Fast Schtick, I thought we'd do something different. Something that drives my dad nuts. Do you think he looks more like Great Auntie Corinne? Or Great Grandpa Art? "He looks like himself," my dad always declares. And yes. He does. But what fun is that if we can't analyze every little baby trait? And if we didn't do that, we'd have to sit here and read about how time is going too quickly and his babyhood is, like, almost over ohmygodIamnotreadyforbabyhoodtoendcan'thandletoddlers. *Sob*

So, let's play. Shall we? Who does Andrew look like?

Here is Andrew.
His dad.

His Mom
Here is his paternal grandmother (Jo Anne). She totally looks like the Gerber baby! And are those curls? No one on either side of our family currently has any curls whatsoever!


Here is his paternal grandfather (John). I can just tell this is him.

Here is his maternal grandmother (Carol) and her brother (Phil). I totally think this looks like my mom as well. I can tell it is her.
And his maternal grandfather (Jack).


Here is Uncle David (my brother).

He is being held by our Uncle Jim.

And Aunt Susan (my sister).

And Aunt Amy (John's sister.) I couldn't find any baby pictures of her. But she totally reminds me of Becca in this picture!
This is me and David. Love the expressions.

And finally, here is Becca around his same age.

So, who does he look like?

Seeing all those happy young mothers holding dear little babies, and now so many of them OLD or GONE is giving me the major ulps.

It's still hands down Grandpa Jack! (whether he likes it or not!!)

YOU. YOU. You. Totally.

Grandpa Jack said...

He looks like himself! Andrew!

Katie said...

P.S. Turns out Great Auntie Corrine was adopted. So, I'm guessing he doesn't bear her much resemblence....

Jack

From the photos, he looks like a combination of John and Jack. All along I thought Becca looks like John, until I sew the photo of you and David. Fun seeing the photos, Katie.

Justine said...

Jim & I both agree that Andrew looks like your dad. Especially, in the pictures you posted - Andrew is a dead ringer for John King!!

molly said...

Ooooo...wait a second. You and your dad.

Nana said...

If you all could see side views of Andrew and his Grandpa Jack, you would be amazed. They have the same head shape - also the same forehead. Both are mighty handsome!

Angie said...

He looks like your dad. And, I can't believe how much Becca looks like YOU!

Andrea_Ben said...

He looks like Grandpa Jack! I have seen the look on Katie's face in that picture on Becca's face.
Gorgeous grandchildren.
