Are there cousins in your family who look ALOT alike?

My sister in law was looking at some pics of my daughter last night. Now my daughter is four and my niece will be 1 in a few days, So these pics of my kid were a bit older. And she pointed out, the hair and teeth. The mouth, the smile. It was strikingly similar! Does that happen in your family?

My daughter and my niece look very much alike in pictures. They are 3 1/2 years apart in age, but her baby pictures look like her cousins baby pictures. They could pass for the same kid if not for the difference in skin tone.

Any cousin looking like my daughter should count themselves lucky. :) Ok, so I love my daughter very much, I love all kids. It is not unusual for children to bear a strong family resemblance -- hopefully it makes them feel close to each other. Like siblings. (Like the good kind of siblings who care for each other.) But, who someone looks like can be very subjective. I have been told I look like my dad. I have been told I look like my mom. I don't really know. I only hope that I look like a kind hearted person who cares. I would find it interesting to sit, watch, and see how personality traits are shared between relatives. But, then again, reflecting on things like this is kind of my hobby.

no, not yet anyhow. your discussion brought to mind a show I used to really enjoy watching when I was a kid (it was reruns, I am not quite that old) it was staring patty duke and was titled the same... the theme song said "when cousins are two of a kind" patty duke played both parts.

Oh yes they do.There have been many people telling me that my cousins look so much like me.These are my mom's sister's kids.They looked a lot different when they were smaller but now after their features have become standard.(ie they've stopped growing) they seem to look a lot like me.The 1st girl looks in build like me that people even called her by my name.The smaller one seems to have features and even gestures like me.Other than these two sisters, I have another cousin who looks like me, she is my dad's brother's daughter.There are too many look a lot alike cousins.My sister looks like another cousin of mine.My brother looks like at least 4 other cousins of mine.We take a lot of pictures together because of this.Its nice.:)
