How have I never before contributed to this thread? Anyway, here's a photo of me at six months old:

TYSM, VegemiteGrrrl. ❤️

In the second photo I was still growing out an ill-advised Dorothy Hamill haircut/'do; no one with hair as thick as mine used to be had any business with such a haircut. Two words as to why: "mushroom cloud".

Deee you are such a cutie!

Coming from a beauty such as yourself, that's high praise.

Ok, reaction time now that I've had enough time to peruse the entire thread:
1. I'm relieved not every one of you came across as looking Too Cool for School, because there's never been a point in my life when I've looked anywhere near "cool". So thanks a ton to those of you who posted adorable (or adorably awkward) photos of yourself!
2. It's kinda distressing how much my very first IRL crush resembled a perfect a 50%/50% mixture of young Ned and jel. Bus Pass Jel especially.
3. Michaels White and Jones were STONE COLD HOTTT OMG.
4. IDK if tera's still around these parts, but I love that with her I found someone whose childhood I could instantly find a kinship. My Catholic grade school uniforms looked a LOT like the ones shown in the group photo and Val Verde and Bexar counties aren't that far apart from each other; also, I too grew up surrounded by a significant majority of my fellow Chicanx people!
5. VG, your childhood photos were so precious, and the photo with you and your fiancée is seriously Relationship Goals.
6. I wish I could've seen a lot of the photos that now show up as broken image links. Ah well.
7. Onimo, that haircut in the most recent photo you've posted suited you perfectly.

One more photo of me, this time at my National Honor Society induction ceremony toward the end of my sophomore year of high school, i.e. in the first year of eligibility (according to our school charter's rules). I was delirious with happiness at the time and it shows in the photo, because this had been my main goal since the very first day of high school. My parents, on the other hand.... (It's also crazy to note that out of the three people in the photo, I'm the only one who's still alive.)

(BTW, notice how much my dad resembled a Native American Elvis Presley.)
