Who do the children in your life look like?

The other day I came across this photo of my twin sister (right) and me. And I was amazed at how similar we are…

My own children. Blondes and brunettes are really good, don’t you think?

My father, a British schoolboy, is also a lot like Toby, I think. Genes are wild!

Curious, I asked our associate editor Jannelle what her daughter looked like. Her response: “When Ella was born, all the nurses said, ‘She looks just like daddy,’ and that phrase never stopped,” she told me. “Even yesterday at a pool party, a friend said to my husband, ‘Dude, she’s all you.’ During her first year, I was getting a little bored and wanted to say, “There’s a part of me in her too!” But after I turned one, I happily resigned myself to the fact that she’s 100% Max. I know the bond that Ella and I have makes it clear that we belong. (And some days I make our relationship even more obvious by dressing us in matching outfits!) I really love how she looks to Max, because he has my favorite face in the world, and now I have an even cuter mini version.”

The sweetest ! Who do the children in your life look like? Is there a physical resemblance? Or is it more in gestures and expressions? I would like to hear…

PS What it’s like to be twins, and a fun conversation starter with the kids.
