Sepia Saturday: My 3 Dumplings

original print


our 3 sweet dumplings,

ages one, two and six months
one not so happy

Momma wanted a photo of her babies;
never mind that they were not
the least bit interested
in sitting still.
I could squeeze them still
looking at this memory of their sweetness.

tickled to be linking toSepia Saturday

Three under three. I had two under two. Did you ever get to start drinking a cup of tea or coffee??? Lovely photo!

What a darling threesome! I was trying to do the math, wow, these children were both very close together, must have been good company for each other....

good eye!

Norma Ruttan said...

yes, Rosie, I had them in March, 1960; April, 1961; July, 1962. I was busy for quite awhile with little sleep!

Norma Ruttan said...

cold tea, and cold food most times! but they were really well-behave kids wherever we went.

Absolutely adorable, and I know what you mean about wanting to squeeze them still after all these years.I have a couple of pictures that have that effect on me too.

I had 6, but never 3 under three at the same time! whew!

Pretty darned cute! I could almost squeeze them myself!

Norma Ruttan said...

I was busy all day, as you can imagine!

Norma Ruttan said...

Did you do the photo work? Nice job at bringing the colors back so vividly. There's something about the three of them that reminds me of my cousins. Perhaps it's the colors or the pose. Very sweet.

I did nothing to the original color photo; that's good old Kodak paper. I did edit it to make a sepia copy so I could post it on SS. But it is 50 years old!
