So many people take one look at Luke and say, "Whoa, Luke looks just like his daddy." That comment has been made NUMEROUS TIMES since Luke's birth.
In the last several months, however, a few people have actually said that Luke is starting to look a little more like me.
That's good because I was starting to wonder if people realized that I too had something to do with the creation of (and not to mention, the birth of) Luke.
I do admit that Luke does look like Marc, in some ways. Luke definitely has what Marc calls, "The Friesen Forehead." It's the long, very pronounced forehead that Marc has. Marc's dad, Alvin, also has this forehead. Marc's grandfather, Abraham, also had this forehead (though he passed away many years ago). Marc's uncles also have this forehead.
Luke's profile also looks like Marc, I think. I have a really cool sonogram picture of Luke's profile less than a week before he was born. Yep, it's Marc's profile -- even in the sonogram picture.
Well, Luke does frequently gets his eyes complimented. He has those nice blue eyes.
I think he gets those from me (Wink Wink). Marc would say they were from him.
Marc does, however, think that Luke's nose, mouth, and chin come from me.
Here's a photo of me when I was just a little over two years old.
Here's a couple of photos I've taken of Luke the past couple of days. These photos do show his nice eyes. You can, in my opinion, see the resemblance of my nose to his. Also, Marc thinks the chins look similar. I'm not sure about the mouth.
Excuse his messy hair in this photo :)
This next photo was taken this evening. Marc was lying on the deck after mowing. Luke just hung out with him.
How do the rest of you feel about how our genetics worked out for Luke?
