When I was pregnant with Kendall, our first, I imagined he’d be born looking like a literal miniature of Scott. Instead he looked like… well, we weren’t quite sure, but definitely not like Scott. Then he got super chubby as a baby and it was hard to tell what he looked like other than the Michelin Man.

Leyna, our 2nd, came out looking SO MUCH like… my sister. To this day, she still resembles her more than me. I don’t know. Maybe it’s the smirk.

But then there was Lowell. There is no mistaking Lowell is Scott’s. I think it’s serendipitous that we gave him “Scott” for a middle name. Lowell loves to tell us, “I am a SCOTT. KRAUSE. I am a LoLo Scott Krause.”

In case it’s not totally obvious, that’s Scott on the left. 3 of his 5 brothers (and none of his 2 sisters) are on the right.

I was getting used to never having anyone say, “Wow, that baby looks JUST like you.” But then along came Wallace.

I get a lot of comments about how Wallace looks just like me, so I thought it might be fun to put together whole post of our community and their mini-mes.

Last month, I asked our Facebook page audience to share their mini-me photos and man did you deliver!

Mini-Me Jill

It was SO hard to choose which photos to include in this post, but if you’re craving more, you can still see the rest on this Facebook post.

Onto the pics!

Michelle: Me on left in 1983. Youngest daughter on right in 2016.

Joelle: Not me and one of my kiddos, but me and my Mom. She’s been gone 11 years. I can’t wait to compare it to my daughter’s first grade pictures when they get old enough.

Amanda: My son and husband are twins (minus the beard haha) and my daughter is a miniature version of me!

Leah: My hubby Mike and our oldest daughter Lil when she was a wee babe.

Brooke: Me & my daughter last month… it’s funny because I don’t think she looks anything like me when I was a child, but she is definitely my mini-me!

Jamie: My husband and our youngest kiddo… only son!

Natalie: Me on the left, my son on the right.

Vi: My hubs on the left, our youngest daughter on the right.

Maigan: Me in 1982, Charlotte in 2016

Now, if you’re sad because you don’t yet have a baby who looks like you, don’t fret! Maybe you just need to have more babies! Only took me 4.

Thank you so much to everyone who shared their snapshots! If you’re dying to see more, head over to Facebook and keep scrolling through the comments.

  • Those sleepy eyes 😍 He was channeling his inner koala. @sandiegozoo
  • Is there anything sweeter than a baby who learns to wave hi and then greets every single person, car, dog, and tree with a smile? #wallaceaustin
  • These two are #brothergoals ❤️❤️ Also? @kampgroundsofamerica jumping pillows are Playground #GOALS
  • Oh. Ok, handsome. 😍
  • There are so many fresh faces here, and I’m thrilled! My 15 month old is currently napping ON ME so I thought I’d use this as an opportunity to introduce myself and share more about Baby Rabies to you newcomers. 🤗 👋🏻 I’m Jill Krause, mom of 4 (nearly 10 year old son Kendall, 7 year old daughter Leyna, 4.5 year old son Lowell- we call him LoLo a lot, and 15 month old son Wallace). I’m married to Scott, my college sweetheart- MIZZOU 🐯 👶
Baby Rabies is what happens when your baby fever is incurable. And that’s what happened to me 11 years ago when I bought BabyRabies.com and decided to blog anonymously about my secret and sudden obsession with conceiving my first baby. 👬🤱 The logo is a play on a positive pregnancy test, but we love and embrace all kinds of families and caregivers around here, no matter how they came together. 💖
It is my greatest wish that this space is inclusive and supportive and uplifting, without feeling sanctimonious or void of humor. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are always open to improving ourselves, but perfection is never the goal. 🏞
I’m currently traveling the country in an RV with my husband and 4 kids. We sold our dream house last year to find our dream life. We are documenting that at @happy.loud.life So if you see pictures pop up and wonder why we spend so much time in an RV or why our baby has, like, 4 outfits, or why we seem to go on a ton of vacations- that’s why. 😆 ❓
Are you new here? I’d love if you’d introduce yourself below! ✨
  • I could hug whoever invented the puddle jumper floaties. Kids have no idea the torture we endured with blow up floatie wings back in the day. I can still smell the plastic and hear the awful noise they made when you had to take them off after you got wet.
  • Spring training for summer starts now. 🌞
  • Pic unrelated, but it's a cute baby and the thing I want to tell you about is super relevant if you're into babies! Tonight is the countdown to make sure you name is in for the over $3000 in awesomeness that one lucky someone is going to get! Follow the link in our bio before midnight tonight to see what's up! 🙌🏻❤️⬅️
