Flash Back Friday #4



I was one of those babies born so bald they don't need a haircut until their 3rd birthday. My brother was the same, although he did have little whispy ringlets at the back of his head. I had nothing! My mom had to stick frilly bonnets on me and always had me in pretty dresses when we went out, otherwise the cooing strangers would call me fella. I'm always amazed when I see a baby with a full hair of hair, especially babies born with the same amount of hair that I have in this picture.

I'm probably around 18 months here. This was taken in our backyard during the summer of 1980 - although in black and white you would swear it was the 50s. That old shed has been torn down now but the houses & the fence are still there. Oh & I have a lot more hair now, thankfully.



I hope everyone has a great weekend! I've been working on some new things for OSR and I hope to have a blog entry announcing them on Monday.

Oh SO cute. Pictures like that make me hope that I'm having another girl so I can dress her up in ridiculous twirly dresses with cute stockings.

Beautiful picture.

I was one of those kids with the hair - not so much to be freakish - but enough.

My mother was, in spite of this, obsessed with bonnets. Her children never left the house without bonnets! Mommy was very strict (and I'm 30, so, we're about the same age)

What a sweet picture :) Both of my kids had a TON of hair. I was kind of somewhere in between. My son has so much hair and has since birth, if he ever goes bald it will seem weird. You look very tall for your age! So adorable.

What a cutie! Everyone calls Ruari a boy... even when she's dressed all girly. Maybe she'll get some hair in, she's only 4 months! :)
