O Baby! A Picture Carnival!

*Don't forget to enter my Lilly Entertaining Giveaway by this Friday at 8 pm PST!*

The gracious Rachel from In His Hands ~ Our Adoption Journey has been waiting (over 10 months now) for the referral call to get their very first baby from South Korea! Her and her husband Josh are the loveliest of people, and I know I will celebrate with them the day they finally receive the call to get their baby!

I too was adopted, so this kind of story definitely touches my heart. I can't imagine what my life would have been like had it not been in God's plan to have me end up with my family. I have the best family. I know I've mentioned that before, but I really do.

Anyway, Rachel wanted to gather a bunch of bloggers together to unite in a same day posting where we show off baby pictures of ourselves (see original post here)!

So here goes - try not to laugh too much!


Quite the little one here...with my Daddy


My mom liked to dress me up...in doll clothes. Is this child abuse? :)


I was an emotional eater even back then...I should have known I'd end up on WW!


This is pretty cute if I do say so myself...


Dressed up again...hmm?


With my 3 older brothers - (L-R Bill, John, Todd)


Always concerned about something...


Probably happy about all the money I found in the Easter eggs!
Did your Easter bunny leave money too?



Toddlers & Tiaras, 90's style!


My parents had to get remarried...to each other
(a story for another day). I was MOH!


My mom sent more pictures, but I am too embarrassed to post them!

Speaking of my mom, I think she has a disease, which I'm about to demonstrate in the following pictures:





This is my mom's newest baby, a Japanese chin named Hiroshima! He is very tiny and only weighs about 5 pounds. She has found that doll clothes (especially the ones from Build a Bear) fit him too!

There you have it! Me as a baby...you can stop rolling on the floor laughing now. Yes you...just stop! Ha ha - hope you ladies enjoyed this post! Be sure to visit Rachel's blog
to see who else was brave enough to post baby pictures!

Oh and happy April Fool's Day! Only 25 days until my birthday :)

Stay tuned for my Wishlist Wednesday April Fools edition later today!
*Update - no time for Wishlist Wednesday or WWW today...sorry!*

I NEVER got money in my Easter Eggs!!! My momma is getting a phone call when she returns from her trip...

I must admit that you were adorable, even though I am jealous that you made money at Easter.

Tickled Pink And Green said...

Too funny and cute -- and I cracked up at the 'Toddlers & Tiaras - 90s Style' comment!

Jenny said...

Cute photos, I love the one with the cereal. Your mom's dog in costumes is too funny.

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

Cute pictures. And I agree, your mom does have a problem. But it makes for good pictures.

My g-ma always hid eggs w/ money around her living room for us to find when we got to her house for lunch.

Jules said...

I had no idea that you were adopted! That is a so amazing. I love the childhood pictures that you shared, especially the one of you in your MOH dress. So frilly and girly! The dog looks really cute too. He was all decked out for St. Patty's Day!

I left you an award on my blog!

Danielle said...

You were a CUTE little girl! :)

Love your mom's dog. Those outfits are hilarious.

La Di Dah said...

I love the pic of you with your three older brothers. It totally looks like "3 men and a little lady." I think my Mom has the dress-up disease too. Once I was old enough to refuse her "costumes" she started in on the dogs. haha
