The theme on the very last Gallery for 2011 is Christmas of Yesteryear.
I ha a fair few ideas of what to use as my piccy, including my photo as Mary, aged 6, during a school nativity, the first time my brother met Santa and pulled his beard, aged 3ish and the first time we were allowed to go mental in the snow… Aged about 6ish. Those pics are in storage at my parents and it was taking me ages to try to actually find them! (My parents were trigger happy when we were kids and they must have about 2000 photos of us all put together. NONE in albums!).
So, I found a more recent special moment taken at Christmas; me and Baby Boy Z, aged about 9 days.
This time last year I was due to come home after giving birth and as luck would have it, our heating packed in. It was a bit of a blessing in disguise as I had no choice but to go stay with my parents, with new born baby in tow, for 3 whole weeks. I spent the entire time in my pjs and nightgown!
Here I am making the most important discovery ever. Both baby and I have the exact same chin (at the time he looked a lot like his daddy). My brother caught it on camera.
I actually didn’t realise it was Christmas day at the time until someone told me. But looking back, its one of the most memorable ones ever. Its when I realised my baby looked a bit like me!
