    Today while looking at some new photos of the grandkids, I noticed one face that looked very familiar. I had to then go searching for the photo that I knew had pretty much the same face! I think my grandson Jonah, looks very much like my brother did at about that same age. I think my brother is about a year or so younger than Jonah in that photo.

    Them's some strong genes, right there! LOL

    My grandparents had a picture of my dad, from when he was about four years old. We found my younger brother staring at it one day. He said "I don't remember that picture being taken." It looked JUST like him.

    Wow! What a resemblance!

    My son looks a LOT like my grandfather (his great-grandfather). My DH and his dad also look exactly alike in photos from when they were can't tell who is who!

    One of my sons looks a great deal like my oldest brother. There are pictures of each of them around two years old and it's amazing how much they look alike! I think your pictures are even closer though!

    Quote:Reminds me of the other day when I was looking thru pictures my wife brought home after cleaning out her parents things.
    Found a picture of my oldest daughter (now 25 yrs old), and I thought she favored one of my nephews sons. Family genes are really strong aren't they.

    My brother and my son are like that too. There is one pic I have of my brother at age 12 and everyone thinks it is my son. So neat!!!

    That is a striking resemblance!

    I have a cousin that looked so much like me as a baby people thought she was mine. I was 14! When she was about 3, she found a picture of me at that age and thought it was her. My daughter looks just like me when I was little too but my son looks just like my husband. We each got a mini-me!
