52 Weeks of Sharing Our Memories - "Daddy and his baby"

This post is part of the 52 Weeks of Writing our Memories by Lorine McGinnis Schulze at Olive Tree Genealogy who has challenged us to write our memories for our future generations.

I found my old baby photo album a while ago when cleaning out one of my mom's closets. I'm glad that my dad took so many photos of us growing up. I love looking at the photos of my siblings and me when we were kids. Brings back memories of carefree days when all I worried about was having to eat green peas and beets. Yuck! (I still hate beets.)

My baby album is full of photos that my dad took just after I was born and several months after. I love the caption he wrote for this photo:

He looks so young! He was 29 when I was born. He didn't realize what a handful I was going to be!

This photo was taken at our old house on Alden Avenue about a month and a half after I was born. We moved to the present house just before I turned four. My mom still has that lamp in the background and the wicker rocking chair that my dad is sitting in. That looks like her sewing table the lamp is sitting on. She still has it, too. We had those metal folding chairs for years. In fact, there's one currently in the back yard but it's missing its seat. I think it'll make a cute yard ornament!
