1 and 1 and 1 Makes 3

I totally stole this idea from Robbin. It was so cute I couldn't resist. Each week she ages a year. She doesn't really age a year but she post a picture of herself one year older each week. I thought it was fitting since I started the process about one year ago on August 17, 2007.

Like Robbin I will age myself one year each Monday until I see my children and bring them home. It should be easy since my mother took pictures like she had a contract with Kodak. Most of our family pictures are in albums in chronological order with dates written on the back.

Well, finding the pictures will be easy. Enduring the wait more difficult. Hopefully I won't come close to my actual age of 42 (hope I don't turn 43). I am even dreading posting the tween years -- you know that awkward stage.

For everyone's amusement. It is me at age 1-fourteen months old.


If you are following the riddle I am projecting twelve weeks.

Trying hard to have fun while I wait.

Valerie, TOO cute. At least your awkward stage starts in the tweens, and you may be able to avoid it altogether (hint hint lol). But me, my awkward years were say 2-20! My mom murdered me on picture day. I am still trying to sort out the feelings of betrayal. Lol. I love the pic.

You are a very brave woman Valerie. I would NEVER post any of my pictures of myself before the age of 18 because they are absolutely DREADFUL! Hats off to you!

Both of you are funny! I've looked pretty much the since I was a about 4 or 4 but I was not a cute baby. My mother did NOT even give out any of the pictures from the hospital. Up until 9 or 10 I was big grins and PERSONALITY a plenty...well let's just hope we don't get to the "my mother let me do my own hair and made me wear braces stage". LOL!

Love the picture Valerie! I especially love the fact that you have so many pictures to share in an organized way. Looking forward for Mondays.
Hang in there. Your time will come.
