How Do I Compare?

There are a couple of reasons I haven't posted comparison photos of the kids yet. I don't think they look strikingly similar as babies, I'd probably be more motivated if they did. I spent a long time debating whether I should compare them by their actual ages, or if I should use Michael's adjusted age. I finally decided on adjusted age because at this point, if I use Harper's 4 1/2 month pictures, she's in a totally different phase than where Michael is right now. So I decided to go for adjusted age. When I look at these pictures together I'm not blown away by the similarities, but I'd believe you if you told me they were related - even if I didn't have the scars to prove it.

Harper at 2 months, 14 days:


Michael at 2 months, 20 days (adjusted age):


What do you think?

I totally agree... I saw it in the eyes right away too.

Before I read anything, my eye skipped straight to the photos. I saw the first one, assumed it was Michael, and thought, "Oh my goodness! I hadn't realized how much Michael looks like Harper!" Then I read, and found it WAS Harper.

I do think they look like siblings. Also: Michael has a dimple? OH NO! TOO MUCH CUTE!

def. related, but he will have his own distinct look, that's for sure. how cute!

Oh heavens...I could just eat up your babies. And not in a bad way, they are just so cute I want to squeeze them. I think Michael's head may be the most perfect shape...and that dimple...

You should have AT LEAST 2 more children...just to grace us with their cuteness.

Um, I think they look A LOT alike. they have the same nose and eyes, and I think in this photo even their mouths look similar (except the cutie baby has no dimple). But, it's only one photo, so I could be totally off. :)

They looks SO MUCH ALIKE! It's interesting because I think Moms don't see it as much. You see them as so different, because you think of them-- more than anyone-- as separate people. But they DO look so much alike, and SO MUCH like Matt!

so cute! and yes, definitely they look alike. I have trouble seeing it in my kids, too, and I think it's even harder when they are of the girl/boy combo. You just look at them differently, even as babies.

I agree with Erin. I think they look alike, and like Matt.
