I learned about this blogfest when I saw that some other blogging buddies had signed up for it, and I decided it sounded like fun. This one is hosted by Trisha at WORD + STUFF. The rules are simple.
- Between December 2nd and 3rd, post a pic of yourself as a baby, and/or;
- Tell us a story about when you were a baby (no doubt you can't quite remember it yourself, but you've probably heard some stories from other members of your family).
That doesn't sound too hard, right? So, given that this is Trisha's first blogfest, I recommend you go over to sign up and help make it a success. Even if you're shy about sharing baby pictures, you can simply tell a cute story.
As for me, I'm not shy, so I'll show you some pictures. The youngest picture I have is from when I was 1, so hopefully that's close enough to being a baby picture.

Though this next one definitely doesn't count as a baby picture, I was still young, and I think it's a cute picture. So here you go!
|Me, Age 3|
There are plenty of stories from my babyhood and toddlerhood that came back to haunt me in the form of constant retellings. There's the time I, over the course of several days, covertly stole all of the candy canes off the Christmas tree and created a stockpile under my bed. There's the time I fell into the dog's water bowl and I got stuck. I can also tell you about how when I lived in the trailer court as a youngster, we had Starbucks right behind us. Now, this isn't the Starbucks that serves coffee. This Starbucks predates the coffee giant and serves great beefburgers, ice cream, and other fun foods through the summer months. As a toddler, I used to go knock on the door, and the girls working behind the counter thought I was so cute, they always gave me a free baby ice cream cone. Of course I took full advantage of that!
