Resemblance.

Well- this is an age-old question: Who does your child resemble the most... Mommy or Daddy??

When asked this question for the first few months of Parker's life...I said "Geoff!" No ifs, ands, or buts! (At this point, I was thinking that we should have just named her Geoffette. (I'm kidding!))

She's about a week and a half old in this picture...

So over the past week or so, I have compiled some of Geoff's, mine, and Parker's baby pictures to let you be the judge. I know it doesn't really matter, and truth be told...she just looks like "Parker"...not really me or Geoff. But this is fun to me because it is kinda neat to see the resemblance.

Check out this glare from Geoff. I'm not really sure how old he is here (I'm a really poor judge), but I found this and immediately thought of the scowls that Parker gives....


This is Parker at 6 weeks old. (Isn't she cute in her first pair of jeans??)


And now for a present-day scowl....(as seen previously about 2 weeks ago)


But then as the months progressed...I began seeing more of myself in her...especially her eyes...

This is Parker at 4 months...

and me at 6 months...

but to me, I can kind of see more resemblance between her 4 month picture and this picture below of me when I was 12 months...

Oh! And these next 3 pictures...I could really see me- especially with her eyes...


But eventhough I began to see more of myself, there is undoubtedly, a lot of Geoff in there too....


When I saw this next picture, I immediately thought, "Oh- this looks so much like Geoff."

...especially when compared to this picture...

and then compared to this picture...(Parker on New Year's Day 2008)--which was when she was about 3 and a half months old...

and then here's Geoff at 4 months...

Parker at 6 months...

and here's Geoff again...(if you can't tell...)

...and here is another one of me at 18 months...
look familiar???





And for the finale..
.

Here is Geoff at 14 months...

Here is Parker at 15 months....

And here is me at 18 months....

So after viewing all of the "evidence"....what are your thoughts???

When she was first born there was no doubt she looked just like Geoff.. but now... she is looking more and more like a Cotton for sure!! She is a mini you!

She has always reminded me of both of you. She has your temperment as I was there when you were a baby but of course I didn't know Geoff then. I just know she's beautiful and good as both of you are and she has both of yours smiles. However, her eyes have always reminded me of yours. She's just a Doll, bottom line, a living doll!

She's a pretty good mixture of both of you. She definitely has Geoff's nose and hair. But I think she has your mouth. I know one thing for sure though - she does not have your legs! How did she get those skinny, skinny legs!? Ya'll are all so cute as babies! I want to do this on my blog!
