I can't tell who my kids look like. Once you have kids, everywhere you go, people remark, "Oh my gosh! He looks JUST like you" or "Wow, she is the splitting image of Dad!" and "Look at Daddy's eyes on that baby!" or "Her face shape is his but her eyes are yours but the hair line is his"....
When I look at my kids, I just see them. I see my little Eva and Baby Nate. I don't see my husband's or my physical characteristics. Obviously, my son has blue eyes and my husband has blue eyes so I guess they are "his" but half of my sisters and my Mom had light eyes too so I could say they are hers too. Eva has light hair and I dye my hair blond so her hair must be mine ;)

And then Eva found this little random picture somewhere. I have no idea where it came from but it is a photo of me from way back when.
When you look at your kids, do you see yourself in their faces?
