I have always thought that Theo had a lot of me in him, especially when he was a baby and a little older but that was until we went through some photographs of Rob, at around the age Theo is now. I was astonished at how similar they looked and am intrigued to see what likeness will continue into the future.
Its fascinating to imagine how Theo will grow and change in the future, and whether he'll continually swing between looking like me and back to Rob. Whether he'll have dark hair or keep his blond, how tall he'll be, whether he'll develop moles like his dad or freckles like me. Will he grow to love his features or whether he'll consider mole removal like his uncle or have to seek the help of a dermatologist like me to try and combat eczema. Will he be athletic and a sprinter like his mumma, or into football like his dad? I don't know how he's going to change, but I'm fascinated to see!
I also know that however he grows and changes he will grow up learning that image isn't everything, and that beauty comes from a far deeper place than his appearance. Hopefully we will show him how to be comfortable in his body and feel confident, and that sometimes it's ok to want to change, but making that sort of decision takes a lot of thought and research especially about mole removal cost. Above all I just want him to grow into the person he wants to be and to know he'll always be loved whatever he chooses.
