The first thing someone does when they meet a new baby is think, "Who does it look like??" We spent 40 weeks daydreaming about what our little man would look like. To be honest, when Ayden came out, David and I didn't really see either of us in him... Before he was born I rounded up our newborn pictures so we'd have them for comparison purposes. Here they are:
Newborn Ayden awake
Newborn Ayden asleep
What do you think? I think that he looks a lot like my baby picture but when people meet him and tell us who they think he looks like they tell usually tell us David. This makes me so happy because it tells me he is the perfect mix. He may look like me in pictures or at certain times but it also says that his mannerisms or certain facial expressions remind people of his daddy. It will be so fun to watch him evolve as he grows. The best part of it all is that, though he may remind us of one or the other at times, he'll actually be his own little person. I can't wait to see what he has in store for us! It's so tempting to want to freeze time and preserve him in this utterly adorable newborn stage but if we did that, we'd never get to see the person he will become. We can't wait!
