Paternity Vote

By HeRoos,

My mother has never been a pack rat but she does occasionally keep stuff around for sentimental sake. Back when I was 4 months old she had a picture taken of me and she decided to keep the outfit in order to give it to me when I had my first boy. So when BM hit the 4-month mark last week we decided to have a picture shoot in my old outfit. This way we could compare the two of us at the same age (ok at least trying to do a photo shoot with two not so great photographers). You see, everyone in the whole wide world have commented that BM looks just like me, his dad. That is, everyone one except the two women who know me the best, my mother and SheRoos. They don’t think he looks anything like me. So we need your help to settle this debate. Please leave a comment and vote on whether BM looks like his dad or not. The loser between HeRoos and SheRoos gets diaper duty for a whole week.

The first picture is of HeRoos in 1978 and the second is of BM in 2008 with the same, but slightly faded outfit.





Here are some outtakes of BM.

Baby M - not a spitting image of dad

I have to say the two of you do not look too much alike in these photos, Max is seriously lacking in the cheeks department, however in reality Max is a spitting image of his father, I cannot find a bit of his mother in him....with the exception of that momma milk I'm sure he's full of. Either way he's way cute!

I would have to say he doesn't look like heroos. He is just a great mixture of the 2 of you!

Now, they don't look the exact same but they do a little now. That picture of HeRoos and the picture of BM are not a match. He has some of your features just not all of them. He looks like both of you!!! :)

Oh and BM looks so cute in those pictures!! You do to Rick but, I have to say your baby looks a lot older than 4 months! in the picture of him standing he looks Jack's age! And I love the one of him smiling holding his toy!!! What a CUTIE!!

I think in these particular pictures HeRoos and BM don't look alike, but in real life they look much more similar. HeRoos, it's not necessarily a bad thing to look like a 4 month old (unless you think he's unattractive).

Here's my vote --- BM does look like his daddy. It's not an exact match but very close. I see more of his Daddy in him than his Mommy. Either way, he is the cutest four-month-old baby boy I know in the whole wide world.

When comparing pics, BM doesn't look all too much like daddy. But when he's holding him, he sure does. So I guess BM is more of a fast forward version of papa. It's a mystery! But he sure is one cute baby!

I agree with porterpies. They look alike now, but not when they were the same age. I want a picture of baby SheRoos to compare BM with. And sorry Rick, he's cuter than you. :)

I think he looks just like his Dad. It'll be easier to tell once his cheeks fill out a bit more :)

KT said...

sorry sheroos I think he looks like is daddy! The eyes and mouth. Not a spitting image but more dad than mom.

So heroos...since I voted for you when are you bringing BM and sheroos to visit me?????

Both of you are beautiful baby boys with desirous cheeks any mom (or woman) would not pass up the chance to kiss. Compared to B.M. Your cheeks are quite enhanced ,(what were you storing in them?) In person I think B.M. looks alot like you but not so much in the picture. I think that is so wonderful that your Mom saved that outfit from when you were a baby. Too bad I don't have SheRoos pink dress when she was that age. If we did , you could dress B.M in it take his picture, post it and do the comparision poll. I know what you're thinking. You are glad I don't have that dress. Love, G.R.
