The CD with pictures from Mom showed up today! (Thanks, Mom!)

We shall begin at the beginning...

I was a really ugly baby:

This picture is from May of 1970. I'd jes' been borned and gots a black eye. I was late. (Are you surprised?) I believe the necklace says "COOPER." A couple of the beads were pink, the rest white.

I got better, though.

1971. Me in the backpack carrier, Mom doing the lifting, my Step-Grandma and Grandpa (Dad's Dad) in the background. I was trained early to smile for the camera. Note the cutely dimpled elbows.

Um, let's see, narrative type stuff. I loved that carrier thinger. LOVED IT. No actual conscious memory of being in it, but whenever I see pictures of it, I grin. They kept it for a long time, so I know it was an aluminum frame with the blue canvas seat grommeted on.

I suspect I was born lazy. Or I liked being tall enough to see everything (except for a big space right in front of me). Maybe I liked being close to Mom or Dad. Anyway, awesome. Lots of images from when I was little but no real memories.

We had that carrier, too! I loved riding in it, although at this point I feel as though I'm remembering remembering it, rather than having access to the memory itself. My dad was 6'4" and it was like riding on top of the world to be up on his back in that thing.
