I found this picture that was taken about the same time as the sleeping one from yesterday and I just wanted to show it to you because of how cute it is of Martha Lou awake and without jam on her face!

    I have to smile every time I look at it.  I have no idea what that is they have put her on because I certainly don’t see any wheels!  And they’ve had to run a strap of some kind under her arms to help her sit up on it — but look at that smile!  I challenge you to not smile when you look at that happy little face!

And here are a couple more photos when Martha Lou was a baby from the album that Mama made for her (she made one for each of us).

    I picture little Jean Marie thinking, as she looks at the new baby, “Who the heck is that?  And you say she’s going to live with us?!”

    But it didn’t take them long to accept her as one of the “gang”>

   I like this picture of Mama and Daddy with month-old Martha Lou.  They never lived on a farm, so this is at someone else’s house, and it’s the only picture I’ve ever seen of Daddy in overalls!  Maybe he was helping a friend on his farm.  Anyway, I just like the “look” of the picture — in front of the field of corn, the lighting, Daddy in overalls, Mama in a dress and Daddy cradling baby Martha Lou.

    Those are great old photos. I love the fact that your dad never lived on a farm, but that photo looks as though he was a sharecropper or something 🙂

    Funny you say that, Suldog. When I saw that picture the words that immediately came to mind were, “Grapes of Wrath”!

    I think that might be a ‘tailor tot’ that
    Martha Lou is on. I think the wheels are small and turned at an angle. Wha da ya think?

  4. Sandra says:

    Boy, you have sharper eyes than I do, Barb. I can’t see any wheels — but I’ll take your word for it! 🙂
