post your baby picture here

my parents lived in houses, condos and even on & off a boat (twice), moving about 8 times in my life. yet rummaging lately through my mother's things i found she still had my baby book. i'm 50 years old and i still have locks of my baby hair. way to go mom!

i was 8 lbs & 5.5 oz and i was born at the annoying hour of 3:30 in the morning. i raised my head at 1 week and it took me 3 weeks to start smiling (probably just some gas). i love my mother's comment on "recognizes parents" where she wrote: "who knows."

i was rolling over tummy to back at 2.5 months & back to tummy at 5.5 months. i started laughing out loud at 4 months and i haven't stopped.

i started crawling at 6.5 months, i was walking holding onto furniture at 7 months, walking unaided by 9.5 months and by 13 months i was climbing and by then probably pretty annoying.

my first words at one year were yes, no & bye and at 1.5 years mom notes i am "speaking beautifully, mimics everything." i've been making fun of the world ever since.

by the time i was 1.5 years old i had been in cars, a subway, a ferry boat and a plane trip to miami. my future early retired life of travel already in motion.

i was a very gassy baby and later i would make my living by being full of hot air so you can see how life comes full circle.

here's my first baby pic scanned from the baby book...



and here i am at 6 months old, already finding life fun & fascinating...



ok, i showed you mine. now you show me yours.

This is me back in 1950 or so. That was probably the last year I was actually blonde.

My hair is still a little wild.

I guess it's no wonder U2 is my favorite band...

"I still haven't found what I'm looking for"

I have some other classic pics, but unfortunately the file size is too large and I've been too lazy to resize (I don't even have anything other than MS Paint anymore)

That's absolutely right on the money! I'm impressed that you can tell just from a photo. I was just awful, most of the time.

Of course, when my parents had company over I was a perfectly behaved little lady.

My parents were too poor to have pictures of us.
