Looks and Personalities #31Days

Something that I find interesting is how the same parents can have children that are so very different from one another. Or how certain families have kids who all look like each other – with half of their mother’s looks and half of their father’s looks. Today we are talking about looks and personalities. Are most of the people in your family similar to one another or do they all have different personalities? Who are you more like – your mother or your father? Do your children act more like one parent or the other? How about looks? Who do you resemble in your family?

I have brown eyes like my mom. My two older kids have the same color eyes as I do. My youngest has my husband’s eyes and I think he looks the most like my husband. My father and brother both have blue eyes. Everyone always says my brother and I have the same eyes – even though they are not the same color! As far as personality, there is always that questions of nurture vs. nature! I am like both my parents in different ways!

Feel free to tell me about your family’s looks and personalities in the comments or by leaving a link to your post!

I truly find it funny that I get asked if my girls are twins, when they do definitely resemble each other and yet Emma looks more like Kevin with my coloring and Lily looks more like me with Kevin's coloring. Definitely do find this so interesting and never ceases to amaze me!! :)

I'm a pretty even mix of my mom and my dad. Dad has brown eyes, mom has green, I have hazel. Everything else is kind of just divided up. My sister definitely takes after our mom and my brother takes after both, but mostly our dad. I think you can definitely tell all three of us are related though.

I moved from New Jersey a long time ago and now I'm in Arizona.


Everyone in my family has Blue eyes. I have Green eyes.

So interesting. I look nothing like my mom. I'm on the taller/lankier side with thick dark hair. People always think my mom will look like me but then they see her and she is petite, curvy and light-haired. Nothing like me! I look like my father, which is great in some ways and unfortunate in others...since he's a man.
My kids look more like me than my husband. They have dark hazel eyes and medium brown hair. My husband was a blondie with bright blue eyes as a kid, and now has darker hair but it's still not as dark as the rest of us.

I liked this prompt - I haven't really talked about family resemblances on my blogs, so this was something new for me. http://emilysbookofme.blogspot.com/2013/10/31-days-to-write-story-of-your-family_13.html

People either swear I look just like my dad or just like my mom. There is no inbetween. I can't figure out who I look like more. Though pictures of my mom when she was younger I can see myself.

I'm glad you liked it!

that's funny. some people say Zachary looks like Dave, but he looks like Gabbie to me and they say Gabbie looks like me, so which is it? lol.

thanks!

It's so weird. My whole life my family has argued for either my mom or dad. I do find closer people to us say my dad and others say my mom.
