Genetics

Here are photos of Me, Jack and Hamish all at around 18 months. Its interesting to see the similarities and differences between us all.

I wish i had a photo of Andrew at the same age, if i find one I'll update it.

I had never noticed the similarities between you and Jack before--I think it's the difference in colouring that threw me. But looking at those two: the eyes and eyebrows and the shape of the cheeks and chin (though a lot of that is baby shape) are so similar. The mouths and noses, less so.

But there's something about Hamish, still, that reminds me distinctly of you. It's in the eyes, but I don't know what it is. And, to be honest, I don't know that you'd ever see it, because you don't ever see yourself the way other people see you.

(Even looking in a mirror is calculated, lack spontaneity.)

But even when Hamish was a baby, he'd look at me and he'd look just like you. So perhaps it was in gesture or action as much as in colouring or shape.

Weird.

I never got that sense with Jack, even now I see those two pictures together and see the similarities.

Your right, I think Jack looks more like me physically but Hamishs mannerisms are more like mine. Makes sense seeing that Hamish and I have similar personalities.
