I don't know how old your dd is but As your bubba gets older she will change in looks and temperament and they will speak for themselves. smile
Try not to take it to heart. All 3 of my girls have been the spitting image of my DH when babies but the older they get the more of me people see in them.
Like TB says - She is most likely just a proud Grandma and more inclined to see her son in your lil one because she knew him as a bub.

drives me craaaazyyyyyyy.....especially when its glaringly obvious its not!
The people I work with also say they look like me and they havn't met dh... And I assume dh gets the same.
It used to bother me a bit but I've gotten over it... None of the comments are consistent so I just go with people say stupid shit, whatever pops into their head and they've not given it much thought.
I think in regard to the family with this I've always felt like it was a way of claiming the kids as 'their' family members, which sucks because it makes you feel so excluded as the in law. I don't know what the answer is I've given up on getting on with both sides of our families!!
It's like I don't get a look in. It's not just like DH either, everything they do is contributed to someone in her side of the family!! We just laugh at the comments now.
I guess that's the only family she has to compare them with though.
Aka G&L smile

My mil does it too, and it bugs me so I know where you are coming from. It really took the cake when she announced that the red tinge in DS's hair comes from their side... My mum and I are both naturally auburn and they have no red heads in their family at all O.o
