Childhood Memories

A few years ago my mom completed a scrapbook for me showcasing my life from birth to kindergarten. She spent a ton of time on it, and there are some really beautiful pages in there. Every once in awhile, I get a wild hair and pull it out and look at it. I love that there are pictures of things that happened when I was too young to keep the memory. I hope that I can provide that for my kids someday, even if it's not in a really elegant and beautiful scrapbook like this.

I took a few pictures to share, as some of the pages are just really great and it's fun to look back on a time when I was actually cute!

Here is the typical newborn picture, with a little card from the hospital with all the details of my birth:

A picture of my first experience with a chocolate chip cookie, a love affair that has lasted my whole life:

Me at 6 months:

Me with my first bike, and a head full of curls. Where did those go?!:

And then, the all so important first dance class:

Everytime I look at this picture I always wonder why the heck I have such a crazed expression on my face. Was it because it was a race and I was losing? Was I so happy to be hopping around like a bunny that I went slightly mad? Were there chocolate chip cookies waiting for me at the end? Or was it because I was actually let out in public with a mullet haircut?

Gotta love those childhood pictures. It always hits home of what a weird kid I was, and how that really hasn't changed... ;-)
