My little man is just like his Dad. I know. Every parent says their kids are just like them, but he's the scoop on I and my husband.
To start with, they share stellar looks. They have the same shaped face, ears, forehead wrinkles, eyes and cowlick right over the right eye. There are other physical traits that are the same, but the really fun similarities aren't the physical ones.
- They are ticklish in the same spot - both above and below their lowest rib. More ticklish on the left than the right.
- Both I and my husband have dirt under their nails. My husband has a very physical career, so its to be expected, but a BABY?!? No idea how he gets dirt under his nails. I keep trying to get it out, but he just gets more.
- Gas. Yeah. Specifically the volume. Not the amount. I'm talking about how loud it is. Sometimes it is hard to tell which one of them makes the noise when they are together. Now, before anyone says the baby's gas is a result of what I'm eating, I will tell you that I have changed my diet. I have tried all kinds of things, but it doesn't seem to matter. I can eat bland, unseasoned food and the kid still has gas.
I'm sure there will be more similarities over the next weeks, months and years. I hope to add athletic ability and love for outdoors to the list. But, for now, I'm enjoying the little things.
