T Rex Family

Left: Bebe Sister age 6 months, Right: T Rex age 4 months

They are wearing the exact same outfit but aside from those fabulous cheeks (I take credit for those thanks to my genetics and breastfeeding) I do not see all that much in the way of resemblance to each other. Bebe Sister (aka T Rex Princess) seems to look like me, and T Rex seems to look like T Rex Dad.

She has darker skin and darker eyes. He has lighter skin and blue eyes. (We're still trying to figure out where T Rex's eyes came from since neither us nor our parents have blue eyes.)

She has tons of hair and his was thin for many months. They are more related to each other than either T Rex Dad or myself are to them but yet they look so different to me. It will be interesting to see what time brings.

It's pretty blurry but at least you can see what I looked like at about this age. Most of the photos of me as a baby are Polaroids so they are not so great. But you get the gist.

Genetics is such an interesting thing. However, not so interesting that I want to take a graduate level genetics class!

What do you think, a resemblance?

A resemblance???


I, too, love genetics. So interesting. Your babies are adorable...just like you!

WOW! The resemblance is uncanny! AMAZING!

Oh I do think they look alike but I also see both of you in them. They are soooooo cute and I think the cheeks are my fave part! Yay breastfeeding.

I went and got the baby whisperer and am trying her way tonight....send me some good vibes, it would be so great to get 4 or 5 hours of sleep in a row!

You can tell they belong to each other! What little cuties you've got.

Big time resemblance!!! Adorable always.

Erin said...

Are you sure those are two different pics? =)

Caitlin said...

So cute to be able to see both of them side by side like that! I totally remember TRex in those jammies- WAAAAH! Our big boys!

I agree that they both have the cheeks, but not much else is similar! Princess is just so dark and exotic looking and TREX has those awesome round blue eyes.

I think Princess looks a lot like your baby picture!!

Great idea for a post! I should dig out some of our baby pictures to see who the boys look like

They are both cute and I like those jammies! As for blue eyes, they are a recessive gene (although recent studies show it is WAY more complicated than that) so you've managed to unearth one. :)

Genetics fascinate me.

I just have a hard time getting by the matching outfits! I do think they look a bit alike but also different. It was uncanny how my Little One and Mr. Jenners as a baby look almost EXACTLY alike.

They are just adorable! I think you can tell they are siblings for sure but they each have their own look :) Super duper cute kiddos!

There is definately a resemblance! But they can start out looking like one person and go through a phase where they look like the other! Interesting for sure!
BTW, they are just beautiful kids!
