Passing on those genes

My mother scanned a family photo and emailed it to me this week. She is sure she sees a resemblance between my grandfather and his uncle with my two boys. I think I see it a bit too. Check it out for yourself!

My great-grandmother (father's side) with her three boys (l to r) my grandfather Hugh, little brother Allan and big brother Frank.
Gotta love how the little guy is dressed!! I wonder if she was hoping for a little girl on their third try.

We think my grandfather resembles Hunter and my great uncle looks like Cavan. What do you think?

That's unbelievable! Kind of creepy, like maybe you have little 100 year old vampire babies?

absolutely! That is really interesting.

Tina said...

Soo cool. Glad to see you're the mother. No question there. :)

Fawn said...

Definitely! I see a lot of your great-uncle in you, too!

Oh, and I think that was very normal "dress" (no pun intended) for a small child in that time period. First they were in skirts, then short pants, and then they graduated to long pants.

Matt, Kara, Hunter and Cavan said...

My uncle wrote tonight after seeing the blog and said that my great grandmother was definitely wanting a girl and did not cut the youngest ones hair until he was 5!

Yep, I am definitely not trying for a girl cause I know I would end up just like my great grandma!

I can definitely see it!
I love when you can see resemblances especially that far back!

Crazy and fantastic! I'm always shocked when I see things like that. Genes are scary!

I remember Grandpa Hunter saying how his Mother kept poor Allan in skirts, and didn't cut his hair because she wanted a girl. Poor guy! He was so nice too! Miss him.

Glad to see some of Granny's old pictures are still around!
