awaiting maternity test results

I look at a picture like this and wonder, who the heck does this kid belong to? I did deliver him, right? He wasn't switched at birth, was he? Does he look like me? He has Tim's nose, right? Whose eyes does he have? Are those my earlobes?

I've never thought he looks like either of us, although there are obvious similarities when you compare our baby pictures to his. But that's where the similarities end, as far as I can tell. He just looks like Alex to me. Is it a case of not seeing the forest for the trees? Objective opinions appreciated.

Sarah, you need to consult behavioral science rather than facial recognition in order to identify this child. Delve into your own childhood and explore the traits of your toddler past and I am confident you will find irrefutable evidence that this boy can only be the offspring, in male form, of the one and only Sarah. Take this advice from an expert. The obvious is all too obvious.

The eyes have it!
I think he does have the Boettcher eyes going but I agree with Grandpa T that it's the personality that is the dead give away who this child belongs to. Tim's calm influence has given you a mellow version of yourself. Okay- WAY mellow version.
He is such a great combination of both of you. Isn't it funny to think you are going to have another one that is completely different!!
Can't wait!!!

That is so funny and WEIRD to me that you don't see his resemblence to you and Tim!! And I'm not even talking baby pictures here. Actually, I'll just say that I've always thought he had a LOT of you in him (looks-wise). But I do see some Tim in there, for sure, as well. In my opinion, he is a great mix of his good-looking parents. And there you have it. Miss you!! xo
