{so...who does he look like?}

As a new mom I get this question a lot:
"So who does he look like?"
Then the person will stare in puzzlement at the baby, then at me, then at baby, then at Hubby...
and most of the time they decide:
"Oh, he looks like his Daddy!"
{ that because they are both males???}

Whenever I get asked this, I always think: 
Is this a trick question?
'Cause he is less than two feet tall and mostly bald,
barely opens his eyes
and drools a lot.
To me he looks like a typical baby
and not much like either of us.

Oh I know what these well-meaning folks mean...
whose features does he have?

My answer is usually:  
"I have no idea."

So to better prepare myself for the next time I'm asked,
I decided to dig up some pictures...

Here we all are as newborns
and then at a few months old:





Hmmmm...I think...
he looks like both of us???
I'm still confused.

You be the judge.

Much love,
