Happy Birthday to Me!

This is me at nine months old. I was smiling at an early age and I'm still smiling now. My parents were living in Arkansas at the time this picture was taken. They were dirt poor but apparently they spent what little money they had on a studio picture of their first born. Don't you love the large curl on the top of my head?? My mother spent most of my childhood trying to make my hair curly and it seems she started early.


  1. Happy Birthday Rose! That picture is adorable...

  2. Happy Birthday, Rose!

    Love that curl...and love baby photos. I remember my mother brushing my sisters' hair up like that when they were small. Interesting how important a photo would be. Aren't we glad they were?

  3. Happy birthday! What a wonderful picture!

  4. Happy birthday, Rose. Sorry this is late. I've been dealing with a number of disasters, one of which is the loss of my domain name. I'm starting over at I missed you during this intense week of labor issues here!

  5. Belated Happy Birthday Rose! Hope you had a good one. Delightful picture!

  6. Happy Birthday! I hope you were able to fit in some extra knitting time.
