High Wasited Baby Sweats

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Its another Friday (well, Thursday night while I'm writing this), and I don't know about your week, but mine has been hectic. For the past couple of days I've been working on un spoiling my 3 1/2 year old daughter, who seems to take a single gram of sugar and turns it into a day long (epic every time) battle between me, and her attitude. So far, our changes have been good. It hasn't been easy. There have been tantrums, bed wettings (oh, yeah thats been real fun), standoffs- the works. But progress takes time, and I'm standing my ground. Little girl will eat her veggies, toys will get put away, and all back talking will send her straight to bed. This Mama means business.

Discipline and war zones aside, we've also had a really fun week. Inflatable pools, long walks in the double stroller, making new friends at the toddler park, running away from and chasing giant Texas sized spiders (ok so maybe that one doesn't fall under the fun category). This Mama also loves to love her babies.

Anyways, I hope everyone had a great week, and I hope that you have an even better weekend. Now onto this weeks flashback...

A picture of me as a baby (I bet I threw a tantrum or two), heeeeeeeeee. I'm not sure how old I am in the picture, maybe around 20 months? Does that sound right? Maybe a little older?

...check out those pants.

I'm pretty sure this picture was taken in my Grams and Papa's back yard. I don't recognize it, but I just don't think it could have been taken anywhere else.

Does anybody else see the insane resemblance between me and little Charlie?

This picture is still new to me, since I just got it in the mail a few months ago, along with a handful of other pictures from my baby days. Every time I go through the bag, its like I'm looking at them for the first time all over again.

Do you have an old picture that you can pull out of the bag and share with us? A baby picture, a picture of your baby, a cat, a dog, a house ... anything near and dear to your heart? Post it on your blog, write a little ditty to go along with, add our link (we have a button down at the bottom of the page, or you can simply text link us), and then come and add the link to your entry (or facebook post, or twitpic, or however you decided to play along) to the list below.

Seriously, Charlie and you couldn't look more alike, well except maybe for the hair. I don't know what it is about baby pants that attract the need to hike them up like that. I can't even count the times I've given either kid the "grandpa" pants look. Maybe someday they will forgive me :)

Oh, wow. That's cute;)
He does look a ton like you!
You're both of them....combined...harhar. That's pretty obvious, but I had to say it.

Oh, you are so cute! Especially with the crazy pants! I love it!
It's so fun looking back at photos to see how alike we look to our baby's when we were babe's.


Chana April 22, 2010 at 10:21 PM  

Oh! So cute! I love this!

And is it sad that I still wear my pants like that when I'm really bloated....like tonight?

Brandi April 22, 2010 at 11:17 PM

Lovely photo! You have the same haircut as on FF header picture...

You do look like Charlie, or I guess he would look like you did, huh.
I even see a lot of you in your little girl especially after seeing this one.

I walked into my MILs house yesterday and picked up a picture of what I thought was my daughter on her table, and it was actually my husband as a baby.

Have a good weekend Tia!

They call me mommy... April 23, 2010 at 8:46 AM  

Soo cute! & yes Charlie lokks just like his momma!! LOL I have a pair of sweat pants for Johnnie that I always pull up JUST LIKE THAT! LOL poor kid, good thing he loves me so much!

Adrienne April 23, 2010 at 8:58 AM  

I thought that was Ellies baby picture at first, although I should have known you wouldn't have pulled her pants up so high. You were a little doll! Both of your babies look a lot like you, especially the hair!

Bombdigity April 23, 2010 at 9:58 AM

years ago my mom gave me a bunch of pics of me when I was little, but I can't find them =o( guess I'll keep looking so I can start playing along =o) Enjoy your weekend!

Oh Mandie! April 23, 2010 at 10:42 AM
