My First Portrait

While going through Mom’s photographs, I came across a book entitled “Log-O’-Life”. The pages in this book are meant to record an individual’s complete life history. Inside this book I found tiny pieces of note paper, on which were written dates and comments. It appears Mom was diligent in keeping a record during my first year of life. However, these notations never found their way into my “Log-O’-Life”. I will share a couple of Mom’s notations, which I found humorous. Mom wrote from my point of view. In other words when Mom wrote “I”she meant me, not herself.

“I was born on Thursday February 23, 1956 at 8:47 A.M. I weighed 6 lbs 6 1/2 oz. and was 20” long. Some people were disappointed. I wasn’t very pretty. My hair was ugly too. Some said I had brown hair other people said it was red. I guess it is a sandy color. It’s got that red cast alright.”A day later, Mom wrote: “Grandma and others didn’t think I was the same baby.”

My appearance must have gone from “not very pretty” to pretty during my first 24 hours on this earth. šŸ™‚

There was a notation, too, on May 17th, in which Mom wrote that I had my picture taken. Here is that picture, my very first portrait. I was almost 3 months old.

    That is so cool that you have what your mom wrote. I have the Log of Life that my mom kept. There wasn't alot in there but I treasure what was there. I was the youngest of 4 so my mom didn't have a lot of time to spare. LOL Your picture is just adorable!
