Little Librarian and Little Mother

I've gotten such a kick out of this old photo of my sisters and I that I just had to blog about it. There I am at age 2 looking at a library book. Granted it is upside down, but the enthusiasm is there to be sure! I was known as a child to even read to the cats. (Martha, if you have one of those old photos, send it to me)Of course I need to mention my older sister, at age 4 enthusiastically holding the new baby of the family. Later in her life, as most of you know, she became the mother of seven beautiful children. As for me, I was strategically ignoring the new child who took my spot as youngest. Or maybe I was preparing to read to her, who knows. As for Rachel's destiny...she had no teeth yet and wasn't big enough to check out anyone else's. She looks a little upset about that!
Isn't this picture a hoot?

It is such a lovely family photo.

I do recall Rachel trying to reach her fingers inside of our mouths (or was it just Mom's?). But then again, maybe all babies do that.

I love your interpretation of the picture, Priscilla. Rachel definitely looks upset about not having teeth yet... :o)

Yes, I distinctly remember being upset that I didn't have teeth when this picture was taken. ;)
