The soon upcoming arrival of my grandson has me looking at baby pictures...

Here are a few baby pics of me, I wonder if Shawn will look anything like my side of the family?

Did anyone else have Pixy Pin-Ups taken? That's the photographer who did the photos below. Mother constantly had them made of me and then we changed and started going to Olin-Mills for our photo-shots. I don't know if Pixy Pin-ups folded up their operation or why we stopped using them. After Shannon was born, I always took her to Sears for her annual photos.

I was born two months premature (3 pounds, 10 1/2 oz.). I had to stay in the hospital for two months and they let me leave before I had gained up to 5 pounds (that was a prerequisite back then to go home). Daddy says they brought me home in a shoebox. The nurse at the hospital was Mrs. McNutt and I was aptly nicknamed Pea-Nutt, as she was my caregiver during my stay at the hospital. (I wonder if that's why I don't like hospitals now.) Mother said I looked small for my age for years. I actually shocked some people when they would see such a little tyke as me walking around, or so she said. I was probably between two and three years old in these photos, they are not dated, and I can't remember how old mother said I was when they were taken. I'm just guessing, because of how many teeth I had. I might have been younger, who knows?

Sheesh in your baby pics you look just like Paw-Paw (so adorable)!! According to Umi it's good luck for boys to look like their mothers and for girls to look like their fathers...I guess we didn't have any luck then did we ha ha? I looked JUST like you!! And I still do, even more so now (Thank God).
