What belongs to who?

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

When I look at my feet, I see my Dad. I have his feet. Our feet seriously look SO alike. I'll take a photo some time and show you. It got me thinking about what features I inherited from which parent, or side of the family, and here's what I've come up with, going from the bottom (my feet!) to the top!

Feet - Dad
Calf muscles - my Nanny (Dad's side)
Body shape (short legs, long body) - Dad
Child-bearing hips - Mum :-)
Chin - Mum
Mouth - Mum
Nose - Dad
Eyes - Mum
Hair - Mum
Voice - Mum
Hands and fingers - Dad

And a few other things:
Stubbornness - Dad
Practicality - Mum
Sentimentality - Dad
Organisational skills - Mum
Sexy legs - Mum :-)
Use of hand gestures when telling a story - Dad
Karaoke skills - Mum and her side of the family (R-E-S-P-E-C-T!!)
Squeemishness - Dad (you know it's true!)
My social nature - Mum and Dad

And of course here are some comparison pictures. In case you can't tell, these were taken at our wedding and I LOVE our wedding photos so I like to take every opportunity I can to show them off!

Can you see the resemblance?? Looking at these photos I reckon Mum and I have a similar posture and Dad and I have a similar cheeky grin! I'm sure I could come up with many more things my parents gave me, in appearance, personality, and the values and morals they instilled in me. I think I've turned out all right :-)

(And you know, a photo of Hubs too, at our wedding, which has nothing to do with the post, really. Did I mention I love our wedding photos???)
