So, here we are, Steve and I, proud new parents of our first born, Nathen, back in 1971. I was 22 and so excited about being a mama! We were out and about, and our friend, Stan, who owned the drug store in Yucca Valley, snapped this Polaroid of us from across the counter.

I always loved this picture of Nathen and his dad. Look how they have the exact same expression!

Nathen was an exceptionally sensitive child, and I think you can really see that in this picure.


This is one of those "cheezey" Olin Mills pictures where they pose kids in ways that are so unnatural. But I think it is clearly obvious that Nathen was a beautiful child, and still very sensitive at that age. At the same time, he was considered somewhat of a genius intellectually by his family and teachers, as well as being quite coordinated and athletic... a good model for his younger brothers, and at the same time, a bit hard to live up to!

Oh these are precious. I love these pictures. Problem is, it makes me want to see more. Don't you just wish you could jump in those pictures, even if just for a few moments.
