1. His traits- I hope our child has my DP's patience and work ethic. I find both of those to be amazing qualities in my man and would love to see that passed on. I also love that he is so committed to family, and that is definitely something both of us care about, so that will be instilled in our baby. In terms of physical traits, DP has what I think is adorable dirty blond hair that I think would be precious on a baby.

2. My traits- I think I am very compassionate and sympathetic- I work in some of the poorest areas of the world when I am doing research in sub-Saharan Africa and I think it has made me a better, more caring person, and I hope to pass along compassion to my child(ren). I am also a huge lover of animals big and small, so I hope that is something my child(ren) and I share. Physically, I like my eyes so that might be nice to pass along.

3. Leave those traits behind- I am terribly impatient at times, so hopefully DP's genes will prevail on this. DP doesn't like to read (and I am a professor who reads and writes all the time!) so I hope that on this one, my genes win out!

Patience is a definite one here. My daddy is very hard to get along with and has the patience of an angry hornet who's been swatted at... and I picked that up. Baby is going to have to get all that from DH. DH also has a nice sense of humor, he's really responsible and hard working. Also, baby needs DH's dental health because mine has been passed through the family too, and it's terrible!

2. What personality traits and/or physical traits do you hope your baby get from you?
I hope baby gets it's tolerablity from me, DH is real intolerable and prejudice of anything he is not, almost to the point of racism, homophobia, etc. I accept most anybody, and today I think you should have to. I also hope the baby gets my family's blue eyes and dark hair, because DH is brown/brown. Other than the teeth, I am a very healthy person, hardly ever get sick, and DH has an autoimmune disease so I hope baby gets overall health from me.

3. Is there anything you hope your baby doesn't get from either of you?
Both DH and I are procrastinators, and tend to be lazy when it comes to house cleaning and such. Both of us have terrible vision.

First off, Ashlee I laughed out loud at your dhs big head comment!

1. What personality traits and/or physical traits do you hope your baby gets from your DH/DP/DF/DB?
Oh, I hope they get his skin color for one :) and I would really hope they are smart like Dh, everything just seams to be common sense to him and I'm like, huh what!? I'm so glad he's like that!!

2. What personality traits and/or physical traits do you hope your baby get from you?
I hope our kids get my patience! Being married to dH you just have to have that ya know lol! And I'd really like it if we had a little blue eyed girl, but Dhs eyes are dark so they will probably win!

3. Is there anything you hope your baby doesn't get from either of you?
Oh heavens our kids, poor Dhs nose best not show up on their faces, or my chin! Ugh!!! Lol dh complains about this all the time but I think it's cute, but my pinky toe hides behind my fourth toe, it almost is non exsistant lol, he teases me about it and I don't want to have to deal with it about a baby :)

1. What personality traits and/or physical traits do you hope your baby gets from your DH/DP/DF/DB?

Physical: DH has made it clear that our kids must have his eyes. lol He has the prettiest blue eyes and knows it!


Personality: He is extremely loyal and loving. I know he loves me unconditionally, and I hope our children have the chance to experience what he has to give. He's also really funny, and comes up with great quips. His patience amazes me.


2. What personality traits and/or physical traits do you hope your baby get from you?

Physical: I tan easily, and in the sun I'm not worried about extensive burning. (Although sunblock is a must!) I have great eyesight and naturally straight teeth. I also danced for 20 years so I hope they inherit my rhythm and agility.


Personality: I am NOT a procrastinator and I hope my kids are motivated. I also want them to inherit my laid-back personality and willingness to accept any and all people. I belive I have a kind heart and genuine concern about the well-being of others.


3. Is there anything you hope your baby doesn't get from either of you?

DH has a gap in his front teeth (which I have come to love) and has

Personality... The traits that I hope our hypothetical baby inherits from DH are his thoughtfulness, his sensitivity, his intelligence, and his sense of adventure. From me, I hope our baby gets my sense of humor and ballsiness. From both of us, I hope the kid is musical and loves the outdoors!


Physically... DH has beautiful, big Italian eyes, and gorgeous thick, curly hair. I have pin-straight blond hair and blue eyes. I hope our baby gets his hair, at least in its texture, although I secretly hope for

Personality: DH is very very intelligent. He is hard working and extremely clever. He always has a smart ass thing to come back with and comes up with the funniest comebacks. He is loyal and brutally honest.


Physical Traits: He has VERY long eyelashes, and so does my SS, so maybe it's a dominant trait (mine are practically non existant). He also has better than 20/20 vision; it's more like 13/20 and I have horrible eyes. He has the cutest ears that my SS also has; they stick out just a bit, but

Great Thread!

1. What personality traits and/or physical traits do you hope your baby gets from your DH/DP/DF/DB?

I hope our LO gets DH Skin it is perfect, his nose (before he broke it in sports)and his height. Personality wise I hope our LO finds happiness in the little things and has his optimism. I also hope our LO gets his math brain, it comes in handy often!

2. What personality traits and/or physical traits do you hope your baby get from you?

It would be nice if I pass on my hair, straight as can be but better than DH, my long fingers and small ears. As for personality wise I hope our LO gets my determination and stubbornness (don't let people tell me I can't do something). I also hope they get my creative instincts.

3. Is there anything you hope your baby doesn't get from either of you?

Our LO cannot have my foot odor lol nor my acne. They hopefully won't get DH arthritis or bone issue.

1. What personality traits and/or physical traits do you hope your baby gets from your DH/DP/DF/DB?

Well, first of all, SO and I look a lot alike. Throughout our relationship, people used to think we were brother and sister. We both have dark eyes, dark hair, and a similar complexion (even though we are different ethnicities). So physically, our baby will probably look like both of us! But personality traits from DH that I want our baby to have - his gentleness, his kindness, his intelligence, and his earnestness. I also hope he/she gets his athleticism, which I don't really have! (Boy loves himself some sports.)

2. What personality traits and/or physical traits do you hope your baby get from you?

Physical traits aside (since it's a given, probably), I would want our baby to have my creativity and individuality. I used to love coming up with stories and plays and I would be so happy if our child got the same thrill from creativity.

3. Is there anything you hope your baby doesn't get from either of you?

I hope our baby doesn't get my flat feet or my stubbornness. From DH, maybe not his perfectionism (that I also have).
