Thanks guys. A lot of people say that we look really similar and I think sometimes it's more in certain pictures than in person. But we sound almost identical, especially if we have been around each other a lot. We've confused our own mother, spouses, and I think even my sister's dog by sounding so similar.
I don't really look much at all like any of my siblings. We actually all look really different! But like you, my sisters and I sound exactly alike, and our mom too, so the four of us never know which one we're talking to and confuse other people all the time on the phone.

Similar situation with me, my brother and father, and my uncle and cousin on the same side of the family. Expect that we can/could tell each other apart, but no one else seems/seemed to be able to.*

And yeah, it's a combination of nature and nurture. There's a "dial" we can "turn up" to really milk it.

* - Past tense only because my uncle has passed away.

Here's how different I look from all my siblings (and how different we look from each other)...

Older sister:


Older brother:


Younger sister:


Me:


And just because it is a really fond sibling memory:

I have some really adorable only-child stories, but suddenly they all seem completely mundane and bland. I won't even attempt to compete.

Aw, thanks.

Yep, she's the talented knitter! This is my favorite picture of us together, taken at my older sister's baby shower a few years ago:


And as tots, because, look at that crooked smile!

I was walking my dog along a road I haven't been down before and spotted this custom stained glass window. I love when people personalise their homes like this.
