A Walk Down Memory Lane

I've been frantically looking through boxes hoping to find my marriage certificate or my social security card. Arghh!!! I know they're somewhere. It's a long story but I went looking for both of them today in the place they should've been and they weren't there.

As is the usual case when I am poking around the pictures, I am hit with wave after wave of nostalgia. Since I've been struck with it, I thought I'd share it with you all.

Whoa baby! I think I was near to bursting in this shot.
This picture was taken by the massage therapist who kept
me going during my pregnancy. Unfortunately, I can't remember
how far along I was. Far enough by the looks of that belly.

Would you look at my perfect days-old baby girl?
How much better could it get?

You might think this is pureed peas all over Marley's face.
You'd be half right. This is pureed peas after she'd thrown them up...
all over the place. At least she's happy!

Here I am around 8 months old, I think.
Um... more chubby than cute.
Cool hood ornament.

Marley's smile says it all, "Well, gee if you feed me pureed peas you can hardly be surprised that I throw them up. THEY ARE GROSS!"

You look like a very happy healthy pregnant lady. Can we see a picture of you when you were pregnant with The Teen Boy? Just because I love early 90s maternity fashions. They make me appreciate not getting knocked up till the 21st Century.

Hmm...I wonder where my marriage certificate is...OH, The Mole is getting evicted on Saturday! W00T!

I'll have to look around. I know I've got some of those pics around somewhere (probably with the marriage cert. and ss card). The fashion then was definitely less than. Target started selling cute maternity clothes about five minutes after my son was born.

Ding Dong the Mole's almost dead! (Will that still allow you to have your heavenly blog meet?)

That's awesome! You and your perfect little girl are ADORABLE.

And you look awesome in that photo!

I love photos and trips down memory lane. :)

Those are fantastic pictures - I LOVE the one of pea-barf covered Marley!
Speaking of which - The Girl got her letter from her and she is SO excited! Tell Marley that there ARE lots of hills around here.

Amazing to see those pictures. It always amazes me when people manage to save their old pictures.

Cute :)

The photo of you on the car isn't perfectly clear, but I think Marley looks like you...and you are both cute!

Aww, so cute!

If Marley can be happy despite having regurgitated, pureed peas on her face, none of the rest of us has any reason to complain. :)

I really love these pictures. I'm still very shy about putting pics of either me or anyone in my family on my blog. So, thanks for sharing these. That pic of you pregnant is beautiful!

I have never seen such a happy post-vomit picture.

Geesh! I remember the day that you told me (us!) that you were pregnant. It is amazing how time flies!
