Fourth Folder, Fourth Photo

As I mentioned yesterday, we're catching up on memes and awards this week, and I decided to do an easy one today! Celita at The Spices of Life tagged us for this meme. All you have to do is go into your fourth folder and post the fourth picture... So here it is!


This is me with my favorite baby doll just after I turned one. Ms. Catherine helped me tie her on my back with a blanket.

Grandma bought this doll for me from Salvation Army while I was still in Mommy's tummy. She said "Mama" and cried and laughed, but she doesn't say anything anymore. Maybe cuz the battery is dead, or maybe cuz I've put her in the washing bucket too many times. I don't know.

But I still take care of her and feed her and sing to her and rock her and color on her head with my markers and take her clothes off.

We're tagging the first four people to comment on our last non-award post. So if you choose to play along, you are:

  1. Beanish and Other Languages I'm Learning.
  2. Damselfly at Growing a Life.
  3. Tara at If Mom Says OK.
  4. Brynna at Taking Up My Cross.

We've been busy today! We're on Ps for crafts still - we'll tell you all about it. You can NEVER run out of things to do on "P"! And "packing" is on the list. We went through all my clothes and sorted out what I get to wear right now, what I can pack away for later, and what I can give away. I was VERY helpful - trying on all the clothes and putting them in random piles!

Love the photo Esmé! You are getting way good at self-portrait photography and at such a young age. I can't even tell how you are holding the camera... maybe it's on a tripod with a timer. Ü
Esmé you sure a beautiful little girl.

I love seeing her carry her babydoll on her back! Esme is so talented. I sure couldn't do that with my baby. Never really figured it out.... ;)

ah! that photo just transported me back to my time in Africa! I was 6 months pregnant with my little bean and all of the women were showing me had to tie him on:)

I love this photo. I still have my very first doll and she has been repaired several times in her 47 years. Her nails were painted with polish when I was 5 or 6 and I used embroidery thread to sew a tear in her body..it's still there. Dolls are special and ageless!

Genny said...

What an adorable picture! And what a cute expression she has on her face!

Thanks for your sweet comment today. :)

Look at those eyes.

Wearing a baby on your back - "it's a great trick!" And doesn't she look proud? :)

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Man, those baby blues...so gorgeous.

You are SO cute with that baby on your back!

Heather @ Not a DIY Life said...

What a great photo! So many people comment on my babywearing, yet it is the norm in so many non-US cultures.
