I sure was a happy little toddler. I'm gushing in most of the pix, and my mom confirms I really was. For what it's worth, that's my sense of the period, too.
I'm on the right, the youngest at this point. Five more kids to come.
My older siblings seem pretty happy, too. And I remember that shirt with the doggie on it! I loved that thing. (I guess my younger brother wore it much later, so I'd keep seeing it again.)
I'm a little younger in this next one, but happier. The caption from one of my siblings cracked me up. Hard to argue with that. :)
(I forgot to hit Post on Thursday. Whoops. So it's kinda TBS. I'm OK with that.)
