When people meet me and Chad, they often ask how the heck Nate got the blonde hair and blue/green eyes. I explain that he got those genes from his Tutu (Hawaiian for grandma), my mother, who was blonde with blue/green eyes. Since Tutu’s no longer living, sometimes people don’t believe us, so we show them this photo as a comparison.
The similarity between Chad and Nate continues as both grew older.
And then there’s me and Nate at eighteen months old. (I was a blondie for a while as a tot. Then it all fell out and came in dark brown.)
As I get the time to scan in more pictures of me, Chad, and other relatives, I plan to keep these comparisons going because Nate really is a good blend of both of our genes. Not to mention, these photos crack me up….
