When I gave this assignment I had no idea how difficult it would be for me to complete! All of my mom's photos of us are in her storage, and we have no access to it until spring! So after my mom did a lot of searching, she found these photos that were actually in a photo album that had belonged to my grandma! It means so much to me that she had and kept them!
This first shot of me was taken when my parents brought me home from the hospital ! My birth was very difficult for my mom and for me! I was born breech, so to deliver me they actually had to break my collar bone! I was covered in bruises! My dad thought that someone had beaten his baby, and he nearly took out the doctor! I was also very small at birth weighing in at only 5 pounds! My dad is holding me and a teacup over my head to show just how small I was!
This was taken on my first Christmas! These are my grandparent's on my mom's side! I don't know why they both look so serious! (:
This is me being held by my grandpa! He was a wonderful man!
This is me with my dad! I look like I am trying to tell him something important! (:
I will leave you with this 3 year old photo of me! This was me at James' age! That fact gives me perspective! I actually remember this being taken! It was done at a JCPenney Pixy Pin Ups photoshoot in our loca departmentl store!
Now the other part of our assignment was, what is our first memory? Mine is actually me and my grandpa that you see above! When I was 2 we lived in a house trailer in my grandparent's yard! We were right in front of the horse pen! So every morning when my grandpa would go out to feed our horse, Shorty, he would walk over by our living room window just to wave at me! I remember excitedly crawling up on the couch so that I could see him! I really miss both of my grandparents! It was very nice to see these photos of me with them, and to be reminded how much they loved me!
