I'm built very much like my mom was. In facial features I look a lot more like my dad, and I sunburn like him too (only worse.) I'm the only redhead. But people say I remind them of my mom and my daughters both (and none of us really look alike) - I think it's like you said, Robin, the gestures and expressions, and maybe the way we talk, must be similar. That's what other people seem to see, the generalities, not the differences that we do.
