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?
