More Like Chris? Or More Like Me--You Decide!

I have been wanting to get Ella a toy that James had when he was her age--a Leapfrog Musical table, because as you can tell from the previous post, she is at the stage where she is pulling up and standing. I bought one for her today, brought it home, put it together, and within seconds she was standing at it, having a grand old time.

I snapped some pics and then somewhere, waaaaaaaay back in my mind I remembered taking similar pics of James.

Hmmm, I wondered, how old was he when I took those photos, and where are they? Well, thanks to a VERY organized husband, within minutes I found the pictures I had been thinking of. The picture of James was taken in March, 2007--so they were both about 9 months old when they started to pull to stand.

Now, I can absolutely, emphatically say what I have been thinking for months: These two don't look ANYTHING alike! Maybe the hair, maybe the noses, but not much else. So here is the question. Which child looks more like Chris, and which looks more like me? (You can click on the photo collage to make it bigger.)

I realize that many of my readers haven't met either Chris or I in person so maybe this is all for naught, but I am curious to know what you all think.

Whatever the result of this unofficial voting result may be, can I just say--these kids are SOOOOOOOO CUTE!

Sorry Chris, your kids look exactly like Allison. It's not even close.

James = Chris
Ella = Allison...!!

I agree with Jerolyn

James - Chris
Ella - Allison

Either way, they are both adorable.

I think Ella looks JUST like you. :)

They are both so flipping cute. I can't believe how big she is already.

You are all so funny- thanks for weighing in! What I have loved about watching them grow is how who they look like can change back and forth. Chris has really thought lately that they don't look like him at all--a few of you have given me a little breathing room since he thinks I might have had some fun with the milkman--TWICE! LOL!

Dude - those kids look just a like! Except the eye color! I've thought that since Ella was born!
