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,
it’s 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 don’t look that much like either of you, I’m totally individual!”
It’s amazing how inner reflections, affect the eyes.
