Ben didn’t want to hear this

But I think Eliot looks a bit like Ben’s older brother, Jordan. I don’t have many pictures from the boys’ childhoods—their father has them—but the few that I do have show some resemblance. What do you think?

This is Jordan at 13 months. His hair is much darker than Eliot's (and is nearly black today as an adult).

Here's Jordan again, slightly younger than the first picture, but I think you can see the resemblance even more.

Here's Eliot last Friday at the park.

Part of being a parent is getting to make remarks like this and show cute pictures. I agree with the resemblance notion.

i strongly disagree and find the comparsion a bit strange.

besides the eyes he obviously got from his mom, and that I (on the right) am older in that picture, he looks exactly like me. From the cheeks to the chin to the hair line to the toothy grin. Sorry I win.

Hehe well that picture does seem to show him looking like you. When you were a baby, though, your nose didn't look like his. So maybe I'm getting distracted by that.

And also, in case it gets lost in the noise of comparison, Eliot is just so stinking cute :)
