One trait I inherited from both my parents is my eyes. Many people comment on them, since they are now a blue-green, but mostly blue like they were when I was younger. I have two sisters, and both of them also have blue eyes. Also, both my parents are relatively tall, my dad being 6 ft 2 in, and my mom 5 ft 7 in. My pediatrician says that I should top out at a height of 6 ft 4 in, and I am growing according to his predictions. One trait that skipped my dad's generation, is that my grandparents on his side have lighter hair. While my dad and I have hair more on the darker side, my sisters have both blond and light brown hair. Also, one of my sister's face is shaped a lot like my grandfather's on my father's side.

I think that it is very interesting that some traits are carried down through DNA, while others are not; and that children are similar to their parents in a mental way, because parents are the prominent role model in a child's life, so when developing, the child would model it's way of speaking and occasionally, acting after his or her parents.
