How much does your child look like you?

I get told constantly that my eldest daughter Jordanna looks like me or is in face my double, mini me etc.
here is a photo of us both at around 5/6 years of age. I am on stage with Orville.

She is Indeed my double isn’t she?

Now with Izebella, people often say they don’t know who she looks like or even that she does not look like me. I have to disagree there. As today I took a photograph of her which has a striking resemblance to a photograph taken of myself when I was around her age.
Have a look at this!

Again that’s me on the left and Izebella on the right. God only knows what my parents were thinking dressing me in those awful clothes. I look like a damn boy.
Anyway the messy hair do is near enough the same on both photographs. As are the chubby little cheeks and the smile behind the dummy. The clothes obviously being much much better.

Then there is Ryan but he’s a boy and lucky to be naturally blonde unlike us red heads. I don’t think Ryan looks much like me but may wrong.

It’s strange. When people tell me my children look like me I don’t see it. Not until I put 2 photographs together from when I was there age and then it’s almost like looking at the same person with an updated background.

    Oh wow, what a likeness in both pictures. I have never seen it with my little boy either, people swear by how much he is starting to look like me! Finally after 3 years

      Oh your little boy looks just like you. I think it’s because we don’t see ourselves much apart from the odd glance in the mirror. If you dig out an old pic of yourself at his age then you will probably see it x

    Twins, many say my eldest is my double-I always find it hard seeing myself in my kids though! I can see my Dad in my second though! Thanks for linking up
