Comparisons

A few weeks ago, drugs I saw a friend I’ve known since childhood. I noted that her 4+ year old son was a mini-me of her husband. She then showed me photos comparing her son and herself at similar ages and the resemblance was uncanny. I found it interesting how in one moment he looked exactly like his father and then at an earlier age he looked just like his mom.

Below are photos of Xavi as a newborn and then at 7 months contrasted with photos of Sean and I as babies. I’m not sure who he favors, website like this but it’s neat to see little bits of our baby selves in our offspring.

You can’t tell since Xavi is wearing a hat, but he had a full head of hair at birth just like Sean. He definitely took after his dad on that factor.

  1. This is so cute I may have to rip off your blog post idea. K definitely resembled my husband at birth. They had the same eyes and perfectly round faces. Now I think she is starting to resemble me a little, but everyone still remarks about how much she looks like dad. And sometimes I catch a glimpse of how she’ll look as a young lady and I want to sob. 🙂

  2. When I found out I was pregnant with my son, I was so excited because I just assumed he would look like a mini version of my husband. I was shocked when the day after he was born it seemed like I was staring at my own face! My son looks just like me and my little girl looks like her dad. I know their faces will change over the years but, the cute baby faces are the best.
