Look alikes

Several times in the last week, I’ve been told that my daughter looks just like me, and that it’s clear I’m her mom. Naturally, I think my daughter is beautiful, so this is a big compliment. It also makes me happy to think that we might actually look alike, especially since we’re not biologically related. It got me thinking about the idea that couples (or even pets and their owners) can grow to look alike over time. I don’t really think that people’s features change, but that maybe people who live intimately with each other slowly adopt each others’ mannerisms and expressions. What do you think? Have you been told that you look like your adopted children?

    I don’t look like my daughter but the other day she did a grunt that could not have come from anywhere else BUT me.
