I was browsing through some old pictures last night and I found myself staring into the face of my dad... as a baby! I am completely smitten with these images. It makes me wonder what our baby girl will look like - will she have my smile, my dad's eyes, or my husbands curly hair? I will be exploring some of the baby pictures of my family members - just for fun.
My dad, David, was the first born, so there are soooo many baby pictures of him!! I love I love! Such a lil cutie pie...and quite special as he was the first born in his South Dakota town on January 1, 1951.
When my dad was still a baby he contracted polio... my grandma gets teary every time she talks about it... they thought he was going to die, as so many little ones did. They kept him isolated in a little hospital room and wouldn't allow his parents in...they didn't understand the virus. So, my great-grandmother assured the hospital staff and her family, that she had lived a full life and if she got sick taking care of her grandson that that was OK, but she wasn't going to let her grandbaby be alone in a hospital room. Thankfully, my dad was very fortunate, and turned out just fine.
These photographs are such a treasure. Tommy and I want to take lots of pictures of our little one when she comes along - any camera suggestions??
