Re: GTKY & YK's

  • 1. My hair is dark brown.
    2. I have died and highlighted my hair in the past, but now I wear wigs, so I don't bother with it anymore.
    3. My hair is about the length of my shoulder blades. It's very thin though, so even though it's long, I don't think it's very pretty. Hence the wigs.
    4. I wear a few different styles of wigs. But mostly their Bob's or shaggy Bob's or long Bob's.

    -----------------------

    1. My son got my eyecolor for sure. But my husbands I shape. It's a really cute combination. Other people say he looks like me, but I just think he looks like my husband, so it's hard for me to know which features of mine he has.
    2. I think he definitely has the same shaped head as my husband. He's got the same cheekbones and jaw, at least that's how it looks so far. It's hard to compare an adult to a baby. But he also has a swirled cow lick on the back of his head. That definitely is from my husband.
    3. I don't know yet what personality traits he got for me. Maybe he's a bit stubborn. Although my husband can meet here, but I guess it's more so me.
    4. He is definitely an introvert just like my husband. He can handle being around other people for a while, but he always gets so tired afterwards.

  • 1. My hair is light blonde.

    2. I'm naturally blonde, but a darker blonde, so I highlight my hair.

    3. My hair is long, lower part of my back. No bangs. Straight.

    3. Not really. I switch from curly to straight pretty often. Every three to for years, I cut it off.

    ---------------------------------------

    1. She got my blonde hair, my nose, smile, ears, feet, and personality. The kid is really my mini me.

    2. From stupid, she got his blue eyes (mine are green), his head size and shape (large potatoe head), his chin, and his height (he's 6'2 and I'm 5'2). She will be taller than me by the time she's in middle school. I keep telling her how awesome it's going to be to be tall & not short.

    3. She's 100% me personality wise. She has zero personality of her father.....

    My hair is brown, long, and straight. I've never colored it and I rarely change it. I'm so boring when it comes to style!

    DS has my hair color, my leg muscles, my cheekbones, and maybe my nose (time will tell). Everything else is his Dad's. He looks like a mini DH. He got DH's cowlicks, eyes, ears, chin, and pretty much everything else!

    Personality-wise. Haha. Hard to say, although analyzing it, maybe DS's autism is really just an unfortunate mix of my and DH's quirks... I would say DS is outgoing (me) but antisocial (DH) at the same time- it's a lack of filter at this point but who knows what direction it will go. He's impatient and impulsive (me) but can hyper focus on things he likes and is interested in doing (DH). He doesn't like to be still EVER (me as a kid- DH could be content never moving at all) and paces while he thinks (ME!). I can't get him to stop touching his penis (all DHs) and he loves cars and has an unbelievable memory (DH).

    1. Brownish-red?
    2. I dye it twice a year and let it fade out. Somehow the color magically blends in but i've been finding a shitload of gray hairs now so i foresee a few more dye jobs in the future.
    3. short bob?
    4. no. i have really fine hair and it's hard to find a cut that makes me look like i have a normal amount of hair on my head. this is one of two looks that i can pull off.

    ----------------

    1. kellen has my brown eyes. and my expressions. (that shit-eating grin is definitely mine.)
    2. everything else except #1
    3. charm. humor. intelligence.
    4. persistence. cloyingly annoying. mischevous.

  • 1. Blonde
    2. Has gotten a lot darker over the last couple years so yes I highlight.
    3. Right now long layers
    4. Yes I go between what I have now and a super short bob. The good news about my bipolar hair tendencies is that I can always donate to Locks of love when I do cut it off.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    1. G has my blonde hair with ringlets just like I did at his age, but it was platinum last summer and getting darker everyday heading to his fathers coloring.
    2. He totally has DH's olive skin even with 70 SPF on all the time his legs are so tan.
    3. The stubborn is strong in both our families so that is probably coming from all sides.
    4. He definitely gets his super flirtatious behavior from DH.

    TTC#1 May 2009- July 2010 on our own with no luck

    Started with RE in August 2010, dx with unexplained IF and then finally our 3rd IUI cycle using Follistim and Trigger resulted in our wonderful little man.  Born 12/2/11

    TTC#2 Never really prevented, but were careful early on as Dr. reccomended

    Surprise BFP 12/16/13, started progesterone immediately as first numbers came back low, but betas were good.  Progesterone wasnt enough. Natural MC 12/24/13.

    Back with RE as of January 2014...

    5/27/14- Chemical Pregnancy :(

    April 2015 IVF#1

    5/13/15- BFP, please stick LO!

    Oh and I'm a major Harry Potter Nerd :)
