Who Does Your Baby Look Like?

Since Arissa was born, we have been asked this question more than a hundred times. Who does she look like?

Before we could say anything, most of them have answers of their own. Take a wild guess who tops the chart on Arissa’s look-a-like!

Personally, I don’t mind who Arissa looks like or takes after. The most important thing for me is that she grows up  being a healthy and happy baby. However, to be really honest, I did kind of prayed hard and wished that she had double eyelid and long lashes when she was born!

Still, I just wanted to write about this topic because it happened to us so often. I bet all new parents out there face the same question all the time too.

The ironic thing for my husband and I are the answers that we get. More often than not, Arissa does not look like either of us. Arissa just looks like everyone else but us! And the funniest part of all, our family members also come to us and told us that they think Arissa looks like them too!

This is the funniest. My dad sent me this and told me that Arissa looks like him! Yes, that black and white photograph you see, that is my dad!!

My reaction to dad’s comment.. WOW the quality of the photograph is really good! It was probably taken in 1953 and yet the photo is still clear and printed on high quality paper. I was really impressed. And yes, I do think there are some similarities between them too.

But what about us? Her parents?

Just so you know the answer. At the end of the day, we have various answers but many people say that Arissa looks like her dad!

My verdict:

Arissa is just Arissa. She probably has a mixture of everyone’s feature but she just looks like herself! Now, I hope her hair grows a little faster so that people will stop mistaking her for a boy!

I just look like myself!
I just look like myself!
