I've been loving the current photos thread, and all the reference to people with a "mini-me" has me curious about just how many people have kids that are doppelgangers for them as children.

So here are mine -

Here's me at 1


And DS at 1

Both my kiddos are a pretty good mix of me and DH

Our kids are all little Jip clones wink.gif

Love it! I'll have to do some scanning though...

So, I don't have kids, so mine is backwards.  This is about the only photo where my younger sister actually looks more like dad than I do, usually we're the spitting image of each other.  I blame the hair

Me at 10 (on the left)



Dad at 10

Wow Iris37 - that's amazing!

I'm currently looking through old photos of me at 5 to see if the resemblance between me and DS is still as strong - I'm now finding photos where I can see my DD, who I always thought was more like her father...

I don't have any photos of myself as a kid at my house, and they were way before digital cameras so I'd have to scan etc.
But my 2yr old is a really good mix of bother parents. My family sees me in her, his family see him lol. That first pic is uncanny! And both are super cute!

Molly lucked out with the curly hair.

Damn I wish I had childhood pics of me here. My DD7 is the spit of me. She even thinks pics of me at my parents are of her. And DS11 is the spit of DH. Everyone calls them mini us.

Your daughter doesn't look as much like you as your son does!

Many people think that DD is the spittting image of me, but she really isn't, both kids are a bit of a mixture of both of us.

Here is a pic of me at 2 and one of DD at the same age.

Posted 27 January 2013 - 06:28 PM

Ferret, that matching grin is awesome original.gif

Iris37, that really is an uncanny likeness with your daughter.

OK, excuse the dodgy scans. I think DS is a pretty good mix of DH and I, although as his colouring has got lighter he looks a little more like me.

Me at around 12 months


DH at around 15-18 months


DS recently - he's 15 months old today




One thing that is definite is that DS and I look the same when we're asleep.

Me sleeping when I was just shy of 3 years old


DS asleep a couple of months ago

I don't think my son looks like me at all, he looks like one of my uncles as a kid a bit though. Weirdly he is a dead spit of my husband now, but not of my husband as a child, does that make sense? Must see what photographic evidence I might have.

Also, incredibly mini-me kids in this thread!

Awesome thread and I think they are all mini me's.

Will copy some pics and be back

#22 Therese

Wow. These are amazing. original.gif

#23 Feral_Pooks

Posted 27 January 2013 - 06:51 PM



DS resembles DH most strongly but he is a little like me, especially across the eyes and his hair, so these photos are deceptive.

#24 Lil Chickens

Posted 27 January 2013 - 07:16 PM

Wow I thought DD was like me as a child but I think we have nothing on Ferret and Iris37!

I don't have the pic on computer but there is a photo of me at about 2 with my dad and since she was about 2 DD has insisted it is her and Pop.  Only recently will she accept it is me!

#25 PigNewton

Posted 27 January 2013 - 07:18 PM

Me at a bit over a year old

Owen at maybe 18 months?


TBH although he does look like me at times, DH was pretty similar looking to me as a kid, and Owen gets a lot from him too (playing up for the camera comes to mind)
