    Cute little one, but what a sourpuss! For a Christmas greeting it’s too bad she didn’t smile! I’m sure she had a beautiful one. Interesting how so many folks photographed in those days were so dour and unsmiling isn’t it?
    Thanks for sending it though, I’m sure she grew up to be a “heart-breaker”!

  2. I agree, she doesn’t look very happy, does she? I’m afraid I’m in the same boat as she, posterity-wise….the only baby portrait I have of myself is one where I’m bawling my eyes out. Much worse than this. Thanks for posting!

    Oh crikey, what a grumpy-looking little thing she is! I was a flower girl at my uncle’s wedding when I was 3 or so and after the extensive hairdressing (new experience for me) and the dressing up and the long journey, I was rather less than impressed. The only photos of me were taken as I ran off through the rose beds. I spent the entire meal hiding under a table with my brother while guests tried to entice us out with yucky wedding cake. Tears before bedtime…
