Baby Lindsay

Baby LindsayThis is my first daughter, Lindsay, on the day she was born.  She had so much hair it looked like a wig!  The cone-shape of her head was due to the device used to assist her in a quick delivery.  It was a traumatic birth, but all turned out well.

I started a tradition of getting her picture taken regularly at Sears.  This was long before the day of digital cameras!  Sears offered discount photo packages.  Then once they took the first picture or two, and after the baby was “warmed up,” they would take a billion more pictures (seemed like) and try to sell them to you.  Of course the baby’s smile was much cuter on the later pictures, but I could only afford to purchase the discounted package.  Arms or legs might extend beyond the edge of the picture, but these photos are precious to me.

I am so glad I did this… and even with my subsequent daughters… in order to have a good record of growth!  So here is Lindsay’s first few years of life, as documented by Sears 🙂
