Default Just wondering... I look more like my mom or my dad? I used to look more like mom, but as I get older, I'm thinking more dad.

I think you look more like your Dad, at least in these photos.

I say your Mom.

I went to my aunts viewing last week and one of my distant relatives came up and told me she knew it was me cause I look just like my mom. There is an old photo of my Mom, that when we were younger and my brother saw it he wondered were it was taken because he thought it was me.

My daughter looks like me (but a much skinnier version!). I was going apartment hunting with her and one of the landlords said to us "you lmow how people always tell someone they look like their mom or dad, well I never see it, but I really do with the two of you.

That's a close call, but I'm thinking the eyes are more similar to dad's, the mouth/smile similar to mom's, but a pretty good blend of both which is why when you are photographed with them it draws those features out. What nice pics to have!

I've always thought I had more of my mom's features (definitely the round nose instead of pointy) but recently I saw pictures of a 1st cousin of mine (our dad's are brothers) and we really looked alike! It threw me for a loop!

You definitley do look like both. I think your Dad - if he didn't have his glasses on it would be easier to say for sure!

Although there are resemblances to both, you're closer in looks to your Dad (IMO).

You look very much like your dad but also resemble your mom. What good looking people you are!

It must be so nice to have parents, to know where you come from and to be loved.

You have your mom's nose and chin and your dad's eyes.

I often have a hard time with this stuff but I can see you look a lot like your dad in these pics.

My Gran once said I had a nose like her family, she said "You have the [her birth name] nose." Baffled the heck out of me as a kid because at that time I didn't know her birth name. Unfortunately I don't know the second and third cousins on that side, it would be interesting to see how much we do resemble one another, if at all.

I look a lot like one of my brothers too but if anyone says so we gang up on 'em!
