looking alike

My son started Kindergarten today. He was so brave and pretty excited to start at his new school. We took a couple pictures this morning before leaving. I love seeing all of the old photos of my sister and I in front of our house every year. The changing hairstyles, fashions, and paint/landscape of our home.

In the process of documenting this special day I discovered that my husband and I are starting to look alike. Not identical but definitely getting closer. Here is a picture that my son took of us this morning. What do you think? By the way, I'm 8 months pregnant here. You can't tell because the bottom half is cut off, but my face eludes to it:)



I came across the funniest website tonight. The photographer Jon Huck did an installation and book based on this very thing. Couples. I'm amazed at how some of these couples look so similar to each other. I wonder how this happens.

The thing about couples is so true! And I notice this the most in elderly couples. It's adorable to see. I don't know exactly why this happens either, but I think part of it is that we're attracted to people who have similar physical/facial features to us. So already, the chances of you looking like your significant other is pretty high. But I also think that the longer two people are together, they really start to take on each others' characteristics and mannerisms. So fascinating! I'll have to check out that link you posted!

ps. your son is adorable! And he looks like both of you! Congrats on your soon to be newest addition to the family! :D
