    No, not any more. When DS was born he looked just like I thought he would - just like his Dad. Olive skin, dark hair. But he's now a spitting image of me, pale skinned, blonde, blue-eyed. And he's more beautiful than I thought possible.

    It's fascinating actually. Indigenous Australians and most islanders carry a blonde gene/mutation giving them blonde hair which, when mixed with caucasians, can give the offspring an extremely pale pigmentation. I'm sure most people in Australia have met aboriginal people who have a very European look about them, with a lot having a especially northern European look, even if only 3/4 white. My sister is 1/4 indigenous and looks completely white lol, with red hair and blue eyes.

    In a way he does because everyone (even me) thought he'd get my massive blue eyes and blonde hair....which he did. But in a totally different way to what I'd imagined. It's hard to explain! I guess I'm trying to say some of his features are as I imagined but they came together in a way I NEVER imagined. Or maybe I really just had no idea what to expect

    I didnt know what to expect before dd was born. We didnt find out the sex so i never even had a preconcieved gender in mind, but when she was born she just looked so familiar like a face id known my whole life! She looked so much like dp and its funny how much shes changed in two years because now i just see me as a toddler!

    I had no expectations about how the kids would look. Weirdly my son is the spitting image of my dad (with blonde hair instead of black) and my daughter looks exactly like my mother (down to the petite nail beds). I find it a little spooky sometimes.

    No.
    My eldest DD has a aboriginal dad. So I thought I would get a caramel baby, with brown eyes. Nope I got a clone of me. Pale, with freckles...plus she has blues eyes which both her parents don't have.
    Second DD to different dad has vibrant red hair, but looks like her Daddy. My sister has red hair so I guess that it is where it comes from.
    I often wonder if I have a third child what they will look like.

    DS1, yes. He has brown hair and brown eyes and is tall and slim.
    DS2, No way! He has brown eyes. But he has red hair. It was such a surprise. Everyone was telling me his hair would go brown. But he has red eyebrows and red eyelashes. He doesnt have the light skin. He is smaller than i thought too.
