Unfortunately for me I dont have pictures of myself as a baby, I only have a few pics of myself as a teen due to my family traveling a lot, I lost whatever baby pictures that were left, and sometimes I wish I could see what I looked like as a baby, oh well thats life I guess. well tell me did your family take a lot of pictures of you as a babby and do you still have them?

reading your discussion made me a little sad. i have tons and tons of baby pictures plus pictures of my siblings as well. it was all kept in a cute albums that my mother keep it inside our house. unfortunately last september 26 a flood hit our city and my mothers house was flash flooded up to the roof. everything in the house was destroyed. from the smallest things to the largest one. even our piano was all soaked with flood muddy water. it is sad that i have no picture to show my son. but i have a lot of pictures of my son from the day he was born up to now.

Your response is a bit sad and unfortunate, but I feel that we have a bit in common because not only did I lose most all my baby pics, but my grandparents narrowly escaped a house fire some years ago. my grandfather on my mother side of the family past before the fire, and my mom lost almost all of her fathers and family pics too. its sad to lose photos because now will never get to see what I looked like when I was little, also I may never see what my grandfather looked like in his younger years. but I'm thankful that my grandmother wasn't hurt in the fire.

that is what we all thought about that there are important things that went to waste after the flood but the most important was our mother was okay. she is half bodies paralyze but she and my sister and husband and child has manage to get up the roof and was saved. pictures are just things, and life is much important. lucky the new generations has pc to store it would be much easier to keep and to manage pictures.

AS far as I am concerned, I have not a picture of myself as baby. When the time I have a picture is about 13 years old. I think you may laugh at me. But it does not matter what you think. I just have the picture of that time. But when I am somehow older, I get a lot of picture which cann regard as the memory of myself.I like the older pictures.

There are some, but not what I would call a lot, at least not compared with the amount of pictures I have of my own babies. I was born back in the sixties, and so while families had cameras, they were not as easy and cheap to take and keep as they are today.

I have a lot of pictures... I still have them with me. :) Most of the pictures are still in the albums & some are just kept in a box. I'm really happy that my mom was able to keep all of our pictures. It brings smile seeing what I look like when I was a baby. I posted by pictures on Facebook & most of my relatives loved `em.. 'coz it brings back happy memories. :D

Hi, apples99. My aunts have pictures of me. But so far I have seen only one or two.... It is not that many at all. I have pictures of me when I was about 4 and 5 years old. Now, I may have about 4 to 5 pictures of these. I have more pictures when I am older. I don't have that many baby pictures either.. But for my kids, I do have many. I wished that I could have more baby pictures than I already do though. It is very sad because I have always wanted to see how I looked each stage as I have gotten older.

Sadly, I only have three pictures of me when I was a baby I wasn't particularly ugly or anything it's just my mom said that most of them got lost or mis-placed, or people borrowed them to look at and never bothered to return them

Unfortunately even i do not have many pictures of me being a baby. I also have pictures only of my teen age when i went out with my friends or families. It is said we cannot remember anything from when we were a baby and i do not even any pictures to see my childhood.

yeah, i have the picture of myself as a baby and plan to keep it for ever. it is the most memorable time when one was a baby. to be a baby, it is the most naive and innocent period in one's life. it is the most wonderful time. by the way, the picture is damn cute. maybe can share with you next time

We have albums of pictures from when were babies, toddlers and kids. I enjoy looking at them and how my parents and grandparents looked back then. I guess I was lucky that my parents were able to snap and keep those.

I only have two baby pictures in my first months, and I smile when I see them, knowing that I looked that way when I was very little. On my first few years I have more, including those taken on my birthday celebrations. This discussion is making me

There are a lot of pictures of me as a baby. However, as I got older the pictures of me tended to drop off. I have a lot of pictures of me from school but that is about it. I think I started to hate getting my picture taken so I shyed away from them.

Ironically I have no pictures of me as a baby ,somehow my mom never got around to it .The only pic of me she has is a worn pic of me ,my grand mother and my cousin.Sometimes I feel so bad that I cant see myself when I was a baby but she tell me I was a nice baby and that is enough to bring a smile to my face

My parents took a lot of pictures of my when I was a baby, I have some of them, but my mother keeps most of them in her own fotoalbum. I like looking at the pictures in that album. My parents have lived at many different places, and the pictures in the albums remind me of the houses where I grew up. When my grandmother moved into a smaller house she gave me most of her old photos. Those photos are very precious to me, there are baby pictures of my brother and me, and there are pictures of my mother, my uncle and my grandmother.
