Looks nothing like me :(

I have seen pictures of Rick as a baby a few times; all before Joey was actually here.  So, when I heard Rick's mom was coming to visit us, I quickly asked Rick to beg her to bring his baby pictures.  He looked at me like I was nuts, but I was serious, I NEEDED to see those pictures.

What these pictures confirmed, was the obvious, Joey looks EXACTLY like Rick. 

To a normal person, this would be no big deal, but it kind of bums me out.  Are his genes that much more awesome than my Italian/Irish genes!?  I thought Irish/Italian genes were the most awesome of all time...apparently not. 

Then I started thinking about why this bugs me, and I had an epiphany.  There is not one person in my family that looks like me.  Some say my mom and dad, but thats obvious.  I don't have a sister or brother that really REALLY look like me.  Shannon is blonde haired, blue eyed, Cody and Jess are extremely dark haired and darker (more awesome) skinned.  Granted I am the only product of my parents love, but still, what the hell! 

Can't this little goober that I worked so hard to make even have a little bit of my face!!  I know that this is one of those things that only a crazy person like myself would think about and over analyze.  And I must admit, I've tried to convince Rick a thousand times that Joey's clearly blue eyes look brown.  But, I want a mini me, I want a child to resemble me at least a little bit. 

If our girl looks nothing like me I will just die.  Seriously die, dead.

  1. Sarah I love your blog...and I'm right there with you on this one: if this baby is not a girl that looks just like me (cuz I am obviously so awesome!) I will be upset. Seriously. I thought Cedar looked like me-and still do, even though he has whiteblonde hair and big brown eyes (no matches there)
