- Do you have any baby photos?
- Where were you born?
- Who was present at your birth?
- What day was it? Time?
- Did you have hair? Eye colours
- Are you a twin?
I have very few baby photos. I have one of me in diapers or nappies but all you can see is a butt shot. I have seen it but don't have a copy. Other photos I have are below. These are all studio pictures.
The white one I was under a year and the yellow/strawberry dress I was just over a year old.
Questions: Where were you born? Dimensions?What day was it? Time?
These can all be answered by looking at my military birth certificate.
Names and other facts have been blanked to protect innocent parties.
My mother's due date for me was between the 14 - 16 September for me. How nice was I to fall exactly in the middle of them.
Question: Who was present at your birth?
My mother found out she was pregnant with me just before she broke her ankle walking across wet grass in sneakers. As her stomach with me grew, the cast shrunk.
My mother was in attendance (of course!).
My grandmother actually drove my mother from our house in Newburgh, NY to West Point, NY in her bright blue (I think this was the model - I do know it was a muscle car though) 1965 Mustang G.T.
My father, who served in the US Navy, was out in a sub and was told about me being born by the captain after the fact.
My 3 sisters and brother were at home.
Question: Did you have hair? Eye colour?
Hair colour is something I don't know. As you can see by the pictures at the top of this post, I've had blonde, red, and now in life, red-brown colour (and strands of grey).
I believe, like most babies, my eyes were blue.
Question: Are you a twin?
Ha! The world can barely contain having just one of me - can you imagine having more than one?
I'm going to add in a picture here, because it means something to me. My grandmother, Jean, took me to get another studio portrait done when I was about 3 years old. This one hung on her wall until she died and she was always so proud of it. It is below.
My mother currently has the physical photo, but wants to give it to me to have.
