Friday Photo Flashback



Alicia at More Than Words started this Friday meme called Friday Photo Flashback. It's where we take all our pictures from the pre digital camera days and scan them into our computers. I could sit and look at old photos all day so this is so much fun for me.

This Sunday is Lucas' birthday so I had to share a flashback of him from the very beginning. I had to cheat though because I don't currently have a scanner..I started looking through his baby pictures this morning and decided to just take pictures of pictures with my camera. Whatever you do ignore my horrible hair!!!! The pregnancy hormones got the best of me during the incredibly hot summer and I chopped it all off....seriously they shouldn't allow pregnant women to do that because we really don't know what we're thinking! Don't pay attention to my horrible swelling either...I was incredibly sick with toxemia and had been on bedrest for the previous week and a half not even able to take a shower at the time. After this I was on magnesium for the next 24 hours and proceeded to hallucinate up a storm before it was all over. The swelling was horrendous!!!! The pictures aren't the best quality but they'll have to do for now. Look for more pictures of pictures on Sunday for his birthday post.






These are from his actual birthday :) Hard to believe it was almost 9 years ago to the day. So much has changed since that day and it amazes me that he's almost in double digits...makes me feel old!

Seeing those pictures reminds me of my delivery days. Oh the pain but the sheer joy! Your hair looks cute short...I can really see Lucas in you. YOu have the same shaped face. Great flashback.

Wow...isn't it funny how we need to excuse our looks even as we just brought forth a MIRACLE? I think you look terrific and your healthy baby makes all the discomfort worthwhile, doesn't it?

BTW, I am having a free blog makeover giveaway. Just thought I'd mention it in case you're interested!

I cannot get over the strong resemblance either! Wow, I didn't think it possible for you to look any younger as you have a very youthful quality, but wow, your whole beautiful self is so different with short hair :)
