When I’m lying in bed after I’ve gotten up in the middle of the night because I had to pee and eat something, I imagine what Baby Murray will look like. Oh sure, there are WAY bigger issues in the world that I could be dwelling on but inevitably it always goes back to this question.
My background is English/French and First Nations/Native American. The Mister’s is English/Irish.
When we’ve looked at family resemblances in my family, there’s a strong resemblance to my dad’s side. My niece was a splitting image of a Bliss baby when she was a baby but she seems to be growing out of it a bit, and looks more like my mom.
When I look at The Mister and The Mister’s brother, it’s a nice mix between his parents, so I’m not sure either of their genes are that strong BUT when I looked at the ultrasound, Baby Murray’s nose bones looked like they were prepped for a Murray nose, so we shall see.
I have had dreams of what she will look like not necessarily as a baby but as a small child and she always seems to resemble my sister as a child. My sister never really resembled my brother and I, she resembled my mom’s side. My sister has blonde wavy hair and hazel eyes, whereas my brother and I have brown hair and hazel eyes.
I’m assuming from looking at baby photos of The Mister and I, that chubby cheeks are a given but other than that, she may have curly/wavy hair like my mom, aunts, sister and niece have OR she could have straight hair like me, my brother, my dad and The Mister’s side of the family.
Her eye colour is definitely going to be a surprise because we have every colour in my family and The Mister’s family seems to have lighter eyes like blue and green.
Whether Baby Murray has The Mister’s nose, or my cheeks and eyes, I know one thing for sure. She’s definitely going to be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!
So tell me, how has family resemblance worked out in your family? Who do your kids look like? Do you have strong genes?
