When I was born I was the spitting image of my dad's sister.  She liked to joke that it was the best revenge she ever got on her big brother, and she didn't have to do a thing.

 

I use to work with someone who’s niece looked at exactly like her to the point that I asked if she was her daughter.  I was in shock when she said the girl was her niece.

I lived with my aunt for 2 years when I was going to university, and if I went with her places and she ran into old acquaintances she would introduce me as her daughter and watch them go into mild shock lol.  She said it was great because it was like getting a daughter who was already potty trained and whose feet were too big to borrow her shoes (she is child free by choice).

Wow Kendra really does look like Christina. Interesting to see if the baby will look like her or if the Duggar genes will take over.

Hopefully no Duggar genes. The boys have terrible hairlines. No J-B clones required. Please no replication of Meeeechelles craaaazy eyes.

My baby pics and my dads are virtually identical. We even have a picture where we're both about 8 and we look alike. 

 

When I was around 11 years old my paternal Nana took me to the mirror one day, pulled my fringe back and held a photo of my Long dead Grandad aged 18/19 in his WW1 uniform  up. Wow! Identical!!! Until then no one could really decide who I looked  like. 40 years on I resemble my Dad. Nothing like my mother at all. DNA is weird,

I look just like my aunt. Like I know exactly how I’m going to age because I look more like her than I do my parents. There’s a photo of my dad and his sister as teenagers that could be my brother and I, if my brother lost some weight and I cut my hair. I’m the only redhead in my generation but my dad and two of his sisters are, and they look just like their moms side. It’s interesting to follow genes in my family. 

 

 When I was born my aunt said I was ‘like the spit from her mouth!’ Because is how much I look like her. We never did figure out if that statement was a compliment or now...

 

and i I think when my husband and I have kids, our genes will be interesting. I’m all recessive in my hair and eye color and he’s half Mexican, with dark hair and dark eyes. Except his mom is a blonde, from all blondes. I’m hopeful for a blonde or red headed Mexican haha (knowing that this probably won’t happen)

She might also more closely resemble an aunt or an uncle.  I know in my family frequently there is one in the bunch that is "twinsies" with one of the parents' siblings..................

Yep, my brothers daughter is my twin, dark hair dark eyes, olive complexion.  Its funny my daughter is also my mini me, but her complexion is lighter she has freckles and light hazel eyes, but her an my brother's daughter hardly look alike, but her and my sisters daughter look almost the same, when my daughter was her age. My daughter now more closely resembles my sister, who is fairer skinned than I am and has blue eyes.

Kendra is pregnant with their first child, due on 17th June.

 

Something I never see.....My wedding anniversary #46, and I'm saying YAY. We have had a good run for the date June 17 and I hope if their baby is born that day, good for them. It won't affect my day and our anniversary won't affect their day. Not sure way people get all googly about sharing a date with them, it just happens.

@GreatScott same with me! One time I heard someone said how my cousin (so her daughter) looked just like her and I was like hello have you looked at me?! I keep meaning to ask to look at younger photos of her but it's weird how alike we look.

Meanwhile when I'm with my mom and people ask if I'm here daughter they're just like Oh......

Genetics can be so interesting!

my children look like me and I look like my father. My oldest got the short/petite from my dad's mother. My sons, one got his height from my grandfather's family, the other is short like his gpa (my dad was 5'5" on a good day, the kid is 5'7"). Even the next generation still shows many traits of my father's family. My 15yo granddaughter is tall (her father is 6'4") but she is the spitting image of her mother (my daughter), right down to the voice. My 13yo granddaughter is, unfortunately, built just like me...short and thick. She also has the attitude down pat. Good Rufus! My 5yo grandson looks like my son, but with blue/hazel eyes...

My birthday is the 18th June and I don't get why people get mad either. 

On the subject of grandparents my maternal grandparents are Nanny and Papa. Paternal grandparents are Gran and grandad. When my nephew was born my parents were 46, Mum was adamant she wasn't going to be called Nana because she felt it made her sound old, she is called gran or granny by her grandchildren.

My grandma on one side felt the same way about Grandmother/Grandma/Granny/Gran. We called her by a diminutive of her first name (the way I could say it as a baby) and she added Nan/Nanny to the front of it as she aged and gained a handful more grandchildren. It’s interesting how people respond to names - that gut reaction of, “No! I’m not old enough for that!”

DS1 looks similar to me as a baby, however he looks almost identical to my grandfather (his great-grandfather). The genes from that branch of the family are strong (stronger than even the Duggar genes ... maybe :laughing-rollingyellow:) - all of his great-grandchildren so far have his forehead, nose and head shape. 

Genetics are fascinating. I love seeing how they mix up in different families.

My older brother and I look NOTHING alike. One of his daughters looks EXACTLY like I did when I was little! She definitely looks like she should be my daughter. Genetics are so strange!!

It seems sometimes a set of features reappears after several generations. We have an old photo of our grandmother's aunt (who died as a teenager in the 1920s) and my sister's resemblance to her is uncanny. To the point of "what if..." questions, even though we are rational people who generally hold a view that reincarnation etc is nonsense.

I too look just like my aunt. When I was a kid I always had a secret hope in the back of my brain that maybe she actually gave birth to me and then handed me off to her brother so she could continue her badass world-travelling ways. She brought me to work one day and her co-workers thought I was her kid.

Funny thing, DNA. Of course, people see what they want to see... All Four are adopted, but Three and Four are full siblings, while the other two are completely unrelated to them or to each other. But people will consistently pick One and Four as the relatives, They would also pick One and my sister's youngest as siblings, and Two and her oldest as siblings. (Once I went into Walmart with four boys under 8 and got their photos taken. First all four, then each individually. They remain my sister's and my favorite photo shoots.)

My high school chorus teacher has an adopted son. He looks just like him. Unless you know his background someone would think his son was biologically his.

I just wanted to comment that the title "Giggling On" makes me laugh every single time. It is so perfect for Joe and Kendra I can't even.

I'm fascinated by this.  My partner and her sister are adopted, from different parents, and their adopted parents both divorced and re-married.  But for decades, people who know their (adopted) dad is their dad will have 100% proof that my partner is the spitting image of her dad, while her sister is exactly like their stepmum.  

Then, there were the years my dad was dating a very Spanish woman, and people would tell him how much white-blonde me looked like my dark haired, oliveskinned "mother" when we were out together.

I think it's a socialised thing, that humans look for patterns anyway, and we know family resemblances are legitimately a thing, so we look for them.  If I said I was sisters with my (very different looking) best friends, people would say "Of course, it's so obvious, I could tell that just from looking at you", because that's what people do. 

(of course, some people very definitely have family faces, I do get that!)

My family is from the east coast of Canada (Newfoundland) and they often use the term "the spit of..."

As in, "He's the spit of his father!"

I know it comes from 'spitting image' but it's not a common term where I currently live, that's for sure!

Kendra has the biggest chipmunk cheeks. I think her mother looks as young as Kendra.

Maybe Mr. Caldwell has some Newfoundland blood in him & that's why he'll be called Poppy! :my_biggrin:

No, we are not claiming Mr. Caldwell. lol :P 

Yes. We are far better than his type of fundie stick in the mud! And besides, Newfoundlanders have a great sense of humor...which despite Kendra's giggling, I doubt her father has.  :kitty-wink:

I always called my grandparents "grandma/pa [last name]" but my kids call their paternal grandparents Mami and Papi (the a sounds like the a in "ant" so not like poppy) and my parents are grandma and peepaw, their great grandparents (husband's grandparents, my grandparents passed long before they were born) are called grandmaman and grandpapa

My friend called her grandmother mother Granny J. She was her father's mother and their last name starts with a J. I knew this woman I called Mrs. Last-name but if I would ask my friend about her I used Granny. However her cousin's called her Nana.

Me and my brother look like our dad. My oldest is a mix of me and my husband. My youngest is a spitting image of his family. I have dark hair and dark skin, my children both have blonde hair and lighter complexions.
