I love looking at my Childhood photos. I find myself so cute and chubby then. LOL Actually, my cheeks are still chubby now. =X As much as I love my Childhood photos, I do not look at them very frequently. I only look at them when my friends visit my house and I show them my adorable baby photos. I know of friends do not look at their Childhood photos at all. They do not even recall where they are. I really hope I'll never lose those photos. They are very precious to me. =) Do you still look at your Childhood photos? How often do you do so? Anyway, for those who are married with kids, maybe you should look back at your childhood photos to see if your kids resemble you then. =P

If you look carefully, babies do look different from each other.

in the world of digital cameras i take tons of pictures of my kids and my mother who has more photo albums than kodak loves to compare them.. 'oh i have a picture of you sitting like that too!' and shows me etc.. she loves to show me pics of me when i was a baby etc and compare with pics ive taken of my boy doing similar stuff.. i have quite a few pics on facebook of me also through the ages that i browse through once in a while to show someone a specfic pic or something.. i dont do it on any regular basic but im sure i see an old pic of me at least once a week

I don't look at them very often only when someone asks me about them or when I bump into an old album. I like those photos a lot. My boyfriend doesn't have a lot of photos from the period when he was little and I am really sorry about that because I would like to see him when he was little. Sometimes we watch my old photos and he likes them a lot. My father took a lot of photos of me an my sister when we were little.

LOL. My friends could recognize me without me having to show them. They say they can tell which is me from my chubby cheeks. =P

Not very often, but every few months or so I get nostalgic and start looking through old photos.

I look at childhood photos and other photos taken through the years about once or twice a year. I am however working on a scrapbook using some of these photos. From when I was young up to 2005. I started a scrapbook (which has turned into two books) in 2005 when I moved 1600 miles and started a new life with a wonderful man. But, I love looking back at those photos from the past, and even more now that some of those family members are no longer with us.

Sad to say never; all were lost is a move. I think about those pictures a lot and often wish I had them to look at.

There is no routine as such to see my childhood photographs. But if any guest arrives to our house, my children start showing the old photographs alongwith the digital photos. At that time only, I also share and have a look once again on all the old photos.

I do that once in a while. You know, sometimes you feel depressed or that pang of nostalgia strikes you. That's when you start dragging our your drawers and looking at relics of the past.

Seems like the older we get, the more nostalgic we feel. I don't remember reminiscing much when I was younger. I've been doing more of that. Whenever there are gatherings, we are always talking about past events too..

Hi,there! Well,I don't look at my childhood photos that much these days. I put them in drawers and usually I can't see them so it doesn't remind to take a look.I also show them to my friends or guests if they come to my house.I'd like to show my childhood to them and let them know me better:) Last time when I saw them,I felt very happy and the feeling is so nice to recall the childhood time.LOL! Thanks for the discussion and I hope all of us could think of our childhood sometimes so that we'll always have the young feeling somehow.Have a nice day^_^

I seldom look at my childhood photos at present. As I already grow up and I have my own child. I prefer to look at my son's photos and I will never be tired of it:)

LOL. I am sure you do. Looking at your son's photo is like looking at yourself when you were a kid. =)

yup i enjoy looking at my Childhood photos too. recently I've picked up the hobby of scrapbooking! so after scrapping the recent important events in my life, i have decided that if I have the time i will scrap events past in my life. and i like taking out kid photos to look at because it brings back memories. sometimes even things that are not from my memory become memories because my parents tell me that i did such and such a thing then.

Oh that sounds like a great idea. I would love to start scrapbooking too. How did you get started? I think I need to get my room organize first before I can start on anything now.

I don't really look at my childhood photos much, but once in awhile when I take them out to take a look, I think it's pretty nice and quite funny. Some of the scenes taken from the photo has been memorable, though I don't quite remember all of them!

The last time I took out my childhood photos to view is during my wedding. I was trying to create the montages for my own wedding presentation. It sure brings back a lot of memories. I love those innocent times where only a sweet and a marble is sufficient to keep me busy all day. That bald head style that my mum used to let me sport cos it is convenient to maintain. Cheaper too as she can cut it for me with just a simple razor. ha ha ha...

LOL. You were a botak even before your NS days. Oh.. I've seen that before. It's getting very popular to do that for wedding. I've got a good secondary friend getting married next month and I am feeling so excited because I am going to be the 'jie mei'. She's my first good friend getting married and I really start to feel old because it seems like I am of marriageable age (I totally do not feel I am; I still feel like a kid =P )Anyway, any suggestion for me to 'bully' the guy for the gatecrashing? LOL
