Old Family Pics I Found… Manila 1976 and Michigan 1970s

It always boggles my mind how much Maisie looks like my mother’s side of the family. The child is only 25% Asian and she looks much more so. Genetics are a funny roulette. She’s built like her father, though, thank goodness- long legged and super tall and slim…

  1. You look like your mom too but before I saw these photos, you look so American to me. I wouldn’t be able to tell you’re half Filipino if you didn’t tell me. šŸ˜Š Maisie will surely look like you when she’s older.
    šŸ˜Š This is what I meant when I said “genes”.. Basing on my niece who only got my brother’s height, I think we have weak genes and team daddy might just win. We’ll see 3 months from now šŸ˜Š

    P.s. Your mom’s beautiful!
