Well, I'm squeaking in under the wire, but it is still Friday, so I'm posting my Friday Photo Flashback. Alicia at More Than Words hosts this party every Friday and, so far, I'm still managing to join in the fun. (It was iffy this week as my scanner wasn't hooked up until last night and boxes still need to be located after our big rearrange.) Head on over to see what everyone else dug out of their photo boxes...it is always a treat.
Fortunately, I found one of my favorites to share with you. It speaks of the past and the future, all at once. This photo takes me back and makes me wonder where the time went. The mouth is the same and the eyes are the same, but everything else has changed. Man, those were the days!
This is a picture of Charming when he was roughly one. He was big...seriously big...he wore 2Ts and 3Ts by the time he was 12 months. Those shoes? Those were his FIRST shoes. The lion in his lap? That is "Mr. Lion", who was hand delivered by his then 15-year old Uncle M who visited (under duress--his parents took a trip to Greece) when Charming was six months old. Mr. Lion still lives with us, but is now cared for by Buttercup, who feels Charming shirks his familial duties where Mr. Lion is concerned. (Poor Uncle M had to spend time with Charming's babysitter as Superman and I had no time off and plenty of bills to pay. Not a fun trip to Southern California.) Ah, well...those were the days. Who would have guessed that sweet baby boy would tower over me a short 17-years later? Okay, we all did, but still.
So, that is my flashback for you this Friday. Thanks for sharing the trip down memory lane. I loved it.
P.S. LA: Your mom sent that outfit to Charming. Pretty "charming" wasn't it?
