Who is he like?

Whenever we see people that I am closer to they always say "Ethan is SOOOOO much like you" and likewise for Jason! I can see bits of each of us in him! So I thought it would be interesting to delve into this a little more.

Ethan is around 13 months old now and we are starting to see personality, behavioral and physical traits that we can attribute to either me or Jason (and some that we have no idea where they come from).

I have tried to get some baby comparison pictures, I have no idea how old Jason and I are in the pictures here:
And here are some recent photos of all three of us. I'll leave it to you to decide who he looks like more!

Here are a few things about our little guy and my opinion as to who Ethan takes after.

  • Tall (neither)
  • Long arms and big hands (Jason)
  • Curly hair on the sides (Jason) and straight/fine on top (me)
  • Brown eyes (me)
  • Looks quite serious when not smiling (me) - see below 
  •  Stubborn (me)
  • Knows what he wants and makes sure he gets it (me)
  • Cheeky (??)
  • Fearless (Jason)
  • Nimble/great climber (Jason)
  • Likes broccoli and cheese (definitely me)
  • Not fussed on meat (neither)
  • Good at kicking (while swimming) (both)
  • Doesn't like to eat in the mornings (Jason)
  • Night owl (Jason)
  • Prefers to sleep a little later in the mornings (Jason)
  • Gets grumpy when tired or hungry (me)
  • LOVES cars, and especially notices any car with a V8 (definitely Jason)
  • Likes helicopter and planes (?)
  • Like motorbikes (Jason)
  • Likes to make a mess (me - haha)
  • Likes to put the washing on (neither - haha)
  • Loves to explore (both)
  • Gets bored easily (Jason)
  • Loves tools (Jason)
  • LOVES to dance (definitely neither, although we enjoy it a whole lot more these days as it makes our dear wee boy happy)
  • Likes computers (especially keyboards and mouses) (Jason)
  • Good farter - haha (Jason)
So there's a lighthearted look at Ethan's current traits. No doubt you will have all noticed other things!

Based on those baby pics - I'd say he's the spitting image of you!
