Whom does James look like? 2011

In March, I predicted James would look Asian based on my baby photo and Kevin's baby photo.  I was right.  At least at first.  James was born looking like a little bloated Eskimo.

Compare to photos of me and Kevin when we were born:

But then, James morphed significantly. James at 2 months:
James at 9 weeks 2011

Compare to photos of me and Kevin a little later:

Ericka, 3 months?

1980 07 Family Photos 047
Kevin, 3 months?

What do you think? Does he look just like Kevin? Is he a combo? Does he look like his own person and not like us that much?  His head shape is definitely not like Kevin's or mine's.

There's a lot of both of you in him, but from the photos you posted, I'd say he looks more like you than Kevin.

I have to go with YOU Ericka. Seriously the raised eyebrows and mouth shape are very similar. Of course, I have a son who came out looking like dad and now looks NOTHING like him. Genetics are funny.-Meghan

I think the eyes are Kevin but the head shape/nose/mouth are you and the eyebrows are a draw. Will be so interesting to see as he gets older!! (And once he has discernible vocal stylings)

I'm laughing because my mom and I always have completely opposed, very vehement opinions about who resembles whom in our family. It is uncanny (and often unpleasant!)

Meghan, it's so true about Nathan. He looked like mini-Ben when he was born and he looks just like you now.

Allison, you and Steve look like a mix of your parents. I was trying to sort it out myself at your wedding and decided it was too hard to sort out your features.
