That’s me with my two sisters and brother. Aren’t we cute? Unfortunately it’s just a photocopy – literally – of the original portrait. The original is in color, but one of my siblings made copies on a copy machine so we’d each have one. Which explains why one of us is really washed out.
Since my mom lives 3000 miles away, I haven’t been able to get any of my baby/childhood pictures from her, mostly because I keep forgetting to ask when I talk to her on the phone. She did give me a small stack of baby pictures of me a while ago, but those are buried in the attic somewhere – this was the only one that I had ‘handy’ that I could scan and show.
I remember the day well, my parents actually had a photographer come to our house to take this picture, and I believe it was right around my Birthday since it was going to be given out at Christmas. It was a crazy day for sure, but as a kid, equally exciting!
Since today’s my Birthday, I’m having a special giveaway – but decided to do it in its own separate post to make it a little easier. I’ll link to it in this post in the morning, but for now you should be able to see it on the same page just below this post.
Edited to add: Here you go! Enjoy the giveaway and thanks for partying with me today!
