O Baby!


Today I'm joining in my bloggy friend Rach's fun little carnival. Head on over to join in or check out more baby mugs.

Funny thing...when you start going through old pictures...all sorts of memories come up. I've now got plenty of pictures of myself for future posts. I think they will be titled When Bad Hair Happens to Good People, and subsequently Poor Fashion Choices, followed by Wow I Used to be so Young and Gawky Looking. Good times.

Oddly enough, some things never change. I have baby pictures to prove it.

If only the cuteness of double chins and dimply thighs lasted longer.


This is the exact same pose I take at restaurants while waiting for the server to bring my food.


Obviously I got my wild streak out of my system very early on. And really, what goes better with a cowboy hat than a belly?!?




Still one of my favorites: Eating, talking, laughing, all with my mouth WIDE open.

Easter. Man I wish I knew what year this was. I'm pretty sure I meant that look to say, "Dude...are you kidding me with this hat?!?"And lastly, my dad and I. Or is it my dad and me? Hmmm...tricky stuff. Anyways, this is one of my favorites...plus it shows my dads permed hair ;)

  4. I don't think I've ever seen your childhood pics! I'm glad you shared - I see a lot of you in your boys! All along I've been thinking that Epley kids only look like Epleys but I'm finding out I'm wrong - maybe this baby will look a little like me after all! :) Either way, I'll be happy - Epley kids are CUTE!

    PS I wore hats and sometimes even gloves for most Easters growing up. :)

  6. Ha!! All of those pics are perfect. Seriously, you were SO stinkin' cute.

    I completely despised wearing those Easter hats, too, by the way.

    Thanks for showing off your photos!

  9. I loved seeing "little" pictures of you!! Some of those pics really reminded me of Jake!!

    It's a terrible thing to sift through old pictures and face the horrible hair or our past!! LOL I'll will be looking forward to future posts with more pics!!

  10. That Easter pic really shows how much the boys DO resemble you!

  11. Cute pics, but let's get to the grammar. :) What you're really saying is, "This is my dad and I," and "I" is correct here because it is a predicate nominative pronoun. "Is" is a linking verb. You're welcome. I just hope I'm right. Anyway, seriously cute pics.

  13. I cannot tell you how much I loved seeing these pics of you! Absolutely adorable. And I second your comment about wishing the cuteness of double chins and dimply thighs lasted longer...I've got plenty of both to go around now.

  14. How absolutely adorable! I had an Easter bonnet that to this day makes me make that face.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and your sweet comments.

  16. What a cutie!

  17. Love the pics! I remember when my Dad got a perm! Oh....the 70's, or was it the early 80's...hmmmm....still, funny stuff!

  18. You're not lookin' too happy about that hat.

    And, your boys look, especially Jake look so much like you did. Wish I could say that about my girls.

  19. OK, that just sounded bad. My girls are beautiful, but look like my husband, which is OK. I just would have liked to be more than an incubator. Make sense?

  20. You were much more adorable than your Easter hat.

  27. I'm seeing both Eli and Jake there. You should really go back to your roots and show more belly.
