Last week, I mentioned that I was going through old photos while I was visiting my parents. My post focused on how much I hated almost every picture of myself, but there are also plenty of pictures from the first years that are so precious! I thought I would share some of them with you here.
This is me with my older sister. It’s hard to believe that 30 years ago I was just an itty bitty baby. Time flies—but that’s a topic for another post.
This is my favorite picture of all of the ones that I found. This is my older brother, myself, and my older sister. It’s just picture perfect!
My mom told me this was taken on the back steps of our house where we lived in Nebraska. Fun fact—I have lived in four states: Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois and now Iowa.
This is the four-year-old me with one of my dolls in my bedroom at my childhood home. I kind of look like Princess Leah with that hair…
Here I am involving myself in the photo shoot that my older brother was trying to have with our beloved dog Buddy; hence my brother lovingly pulling on my ear in the back ground. I was kind of a rambunctious sort in my early years—always trying to entertain, make people laugh, and be the life of the party.
My mom promised us if we would just take one good picture, that then we could take a silly picture.
Here’s the good picture. I’m assuming I was trying really hard not to be silly, which is why my mouth is hanging open. This is my older brother, older sister, myself, and my younger brother.
Thanks for joining me on a trip down memory lane!
