A Trip Back in Time

When we came home from the hospital last Friday, we found several photos on our countertop. Dennis' parents had come by earlier in the day and dropped off some pictures of Dennis as a child. It was completely unexpected. And hilarious.

The first one we saw was Dennis' baseball team photo. Dennis had not seen this photo before. His first comment when he saw it was, "who is that kid that's yawning?" and we both laughed. Then we laughed even harder after he reviewed the photo and said, "the kid that is yawning is ME!" I had to hold my abdomen because I was laughing so hard and didn't want to disconnect anything that had been reconnected after my c-section.



We continued to look through the photos and saw this one. It's an adorable photo of Dennis as a baby.


Does Connor look like Dennis or what?!

It's awesome to look at baby pics of yourself and then compare them to your child - it really does show the miracle in all of it, doesn't it? Connor definitely looks like Dennis, but he will change DAILY! Some days he will look like you, some days like Dennis, and some days you won't know where he came from. Hahaha. Congrats - he is definitely adorable!

I need to get a closer look at that picture. Who's in that, Dennis? I see Christine Size down front, Dan Wingate (don't know how I remember that name), and of course Pop and Son Cooper.

If Dave were on that team, he'd be able to tell you what your record was, and who played what position.

I don't remember much from that year other than that Bob Cooper was in his prime and yelled a lot. Marshal is on the top row, second from the left.

It seemed like a boring year which is probably why you forgot it. Yawning in the photo, love it! that is hilarious! Krista pull out your baby picts. You will have a blast deciding what features he got from who. He def looks like a mini Dennis to me!

I have a rather hilarious ballet class photo like that - I am in the middle of a sneeze! I can't believe they didn't take another one and it ended up in our recital program. How humiliating. At least there are digital cameras now... I am sure Connor will look like a little stud in all of his baseball and class pictures!!

I was just finding it funny that your baseball uniforms are outdated yet the coach looks to be in style! Funny how fashion repeats itself :)

When Dennis' parents saw the solo picture, do you think they had the "even if he's gay, we'll support him" talk?
