Baby pictures



I loved looking at Jori's pictures, and then following Shelley's link to her pictures - -so I thought I'd share this favorite poem (got it from my daughter some years ago) along with a couple of old pics.

Baby Picture

So you were I . . .
Somehow
I can't think through
To that forgotten time
When I was You.

Could your clear eyes
Read
What is in my own,
Would you
Feel disappointment
At the Me
To which
You've grown?
(Amy Atwater)

What a great comment on becoming. We know this life is a process but as I look into the face of the little girl that once was me, I find myself hoping she could look back at me and be proud at who she has become. I'm working on it. I really am.

Oh! How cute you are! I LOVE pictures...especially ones of people when they were young. I'm one of those annoying people that has to check out all the photographs/pictures when I'm in someone's home. You were an adorable little girl, and still are :o)
