31 Day Blog Challenge: Old Photo of Me

Looking at this photo of myself I can almost forgive (almost) those people who daily spam my social media with three hundred photos of their children. I was so cute! Why didn’t my parents take three hundred photos of me (I’m judging you, ma)?? I love that delighted look on my face. I love those chubby arms and legs. As far as I’m concerned I was the most beautiful baby that ever crawled the earth (ha!).

Seriously though, this is my favourite baby pic because of the contrast of the white on green. The ageing tint of the border adds a sense of nostalgia. I adore the shape, texture and pattern of that chair. And I remember the TV with the legs! If memory serves correctly, when the TV stopped working, my grandmother used it as a TV stand for her newer, smaller TV (we’ve been repurposing forever).

Sigh. Where does the time go?

I hope you’ve enjoyed this walk down memory lane with me.

  1. Good stuff, I think everyone used their old TV as a New TV stand back when stuff was worth fixing . Not like these days grumble grumble grumble, etc
