I’m built EXACTLY like my mom and definitely think I look like her in many ways.  But I have the coloring (dark hair, dark eyes, etc) of my dad’s side of the family.

My sister, me, and my mom:

Apparently, I look just like my mom.  People often confuse us for sisters as my mom looks younger than she is.  I honestly don’t see it, and neither does she.  We have the same eye color and thats about it. And we’re both short. haha

Everyone sees my mom and goes, “Oh wow, you look like her!” Until they see my dad, that is. Then it’s “Oh, no, you definitely look more like your dad!”

I have my dad’s coloring (we’re both light skinned…my mom has more of an olive complexion) and my dad’s eye color (blue…my mom’s eyes are hazel) and my dad’s nose but people have commented on our facial structure being similar.

I don’t have a very recent picture of us together though 🙁

People actually tell me that I look like my Mother-In-Law…this is just a picture of a picture on a computer screen but I’m on the right and Mother-In-Law is in the middle. The girl on the left is DH’s stepsister.

I take after my dad.  My sister looks like my mom.  It’s like they got one of each out of us girls LOL

ETA: my mom and sister are blond hair blue eyed and pale LOL.  My dad and I both have olive skin, hazel eyes, and brown hair.

@AmeliaBedelia: I do think you guys look a lot alike!  Your facial features, structure, shape, etc are very similar, IMO.

@Mrs.KMM: I can definitely see the resemblance!

I am my mom’s mini-me. She is much taller and larger person than I am, however I have no choice but to claim her as my mom haha.

Sorry for the awful low-quality pic. Everyone is standing on different steps and all red from crying.

Growing up, I resembled my father. 

 

As I get older, I definitely resemble my mom more. I have her hair (she used to perm it). She passed away nearly 5 years ago so this is one of the last few pics of us together.

@Aure: I get that too!  I am built NOTHING like my mom, except for being petite.  She is a total apple shape, and I am a pear.  She has thin hair, I have thick.  She has dark skin that tans easily, I got all the Scottish blood from my dad.  My sister looks exactly like her.  I look like my grandma on my dad’s side.
