The one thing I know for sure

This I know for sure:

Bubs will have a round face and cute chubby cheeks.

How do I know this?

May I present to you, Exhibit A:

This is Hubs at 3 months old. How cute is he?

Now, Exhibit B:

This is me at an unknown age (probably also around 3 months old).

I think we both have cute, puffy cheeks because we smile a lot. (In fact, Hubs was smiling in his sleep the other night which was SO CUTE). And, although Hubs has dark hair now, he was born with a lighter mop so I suspect Bubs will have cheeky cheeks and light hair. We could possibly even have a red headed babes- both my mom and her dad (my grandpa) are/were red heads.

Although, come to think of it, I never saw my grandpa with red hair. I only knew him to have bright white hair and every picture I ever saw of him was a black and white photo, so as far as I'm concerned, the legend of his red hair could all just be gossip (you know how word got around back in those days).

And, my mom's red hair didn't actually turn red until later in her childhood (age 11, I think?). She was born with super blond hair. But you should see the pics of her from high school and right before her wedding...the most beautiful, shiny, long red hair. These days, some people pay a lot of good money to get her color of hair.

So, we may not know what we're having, but I'm fairly certain we'll have the cutest little chubby cheeked, blond haired baby we'll have ever seen.

Until then....XOXO!


  1. Are you guys adorable?? One of you will probably be dominate....Alex looks exactly like me and Mallory looks more like Calvin's side.

    I was born with jet black hair that turned blonde by my first birthday and then turned brown when I was 25. So weird.

  2. I can't argue with the "going to be cute with chubby cheeks" factor... but then again... I haven't met a baby that wasn't cute with chubby cheeks :) I'm sure that Bubs will be extra cute and extra cheeky!

  3. We used to tease Grandma that the main reason she married Grandpa was because of his red hair. He was more a strawberry blond. I'll show you his high school pix - it's in b&w, but you can tell it was strawberry blond WITH freckles. Your mom and Beth were/are real red heads. Beth was born with red hair. Aunt Ivy said that when Beth was being born, the doc said to Ivy, "I don't know if it's a boy or a girl, but whatever it is, it's got red hair!" Your mom always said that Grandma wished the red hair on her.
