Baby Wants Ba-Ba

I have the cutest accidental picture that I got of Little Man when he was about 10-12 months old. He’s standing at the bathtub, naked, and looking back at me smiling – anxiously awaiting his bath. It was so adorable, that I put it in a frame and it stayed in his bathroom for years. So, when Mini Me was about the same age, I staged the same picture. I plan to do the same thing with Gummy.

Some pictures cannot be staged. Sometimes, through some weird cosmic happening, you wind up with a similar picture taken decades apart.
Emily over at The Waiting is about to celebrate her daughter’s first birthday. She asked her readers to send in a baby picture of themselves and their children for the online celebration. While scouring through pictures, I came across this:

This is me with my aunt, reaching for what was probably the first of thousands of beers.

This is Gummy with her aunt. She's a little classier and going for the wine.

Even though I had a beautiful portrait picked out to send in of Gummy, you know I had to send these instead, right?

  1. The bar has been set. It’s a shame the winner is going to be randomly chosen because I’m pretty sure you’d have it in the bag if it were based on pure hilarity and awesomeness.
