He looks like you

 

Our baby looks like you, my dear husband.

 

O no my beautiful wife, he looks just like you,

Look at his beautiful little nose and his beautiful little eyes,, look how they glow like yours.

 

Yes but, look at the way he moves that little mouth of his,

its exactly the same as you.

 

Hey you two! thinks the baby, looking at both parents and his own image

in the maturity pane glass.

I dont look that much like either of you, Im totally individual!

 

Its amazing how inner reflections, affect the eyes.
