Like Father Like Daughter

See the resemblance?

In the final weeks of my pregnancy with Fern my husband and I would ponder what our little, baby girl was going to look like.  He said he always pictured that she would look like more like me since she was a girl with dark curly hair.  Because he always said this, I kind of expected that she would pop out with a full head of dark, curly hair and be a little on the pudgy side like I was as a baby, but when she finally arrived, I realized that our predictions were off.

Fern looked just like my husband Craig!  She was tall and thin, with a long arm span and his exact same narrow feet.  The similarities between the two were uncanny!  And after seeing baby photos of Craig, my feelings were only further confirmed.  In some of the baby photos, you might not be able to tell who was who aside from the graininess and 80’s styles in my husband’s photos.

I decided to do a round up of  side by side photo comparisons to further prove my point – like father like daughter!

See more photos of my baby girl and her daddy after the jump!

  • Huh? 2 of 5
    The slightly puzzled look on both of their faces in this photo cracks me up. And is it just me, or do they totally have the same hair?

    Mobile time!
    Besides their looks, both Craig and Fern both appear to share a fondness for their mobiles.

    Both wrapped up in layer after layer and propped up in car seats.
  • Sleeping…again. 5 of 5
    Apparently both Daddy and Daughter like their sleep.
