In last months Country Living, Alexandra Stoddard urged us to "Frame a picture of yourself, when you were young and adorable to remind you of your identity and promise…".

And so here I am: arms around a little girl I don’t recognise, and eyes shying away from the camera.

I love this little me.

    Oh how cute! and how like his Mummy is Finley!

  2. Suzie says:

    I'm with Gena – now we know where Finley gets his good looks from!

  3. Amy says:

    Yes, I thought of Finley first thing!!So sweet…and love the little outfit and the cute hairdo.

  4. I have a photo of myself around age 11 or 12, sitting at a picnic table wearing my floppy hat and looking into the camera. Back then, I thought I knew everything! LOL
    Cute pic of you, but why does your baby doll have her feet sticking way up in the air like that? LOL!

  5. Amber says:

    You look just like Finley! How PRESH!

  6. Danielle says:

    Some time ago I did a little collage on a pinboard of baby photos of me. I put pretty cuttings from magazines in amongst them. Every time I look at it it makes me smile. I love my little me too! It almost feels like my little me is the daughter I don't have.

  8. Heather T. says:

    Who knew she'd become the thoughtful, talented, mum, lady she is today? 🙂

    I sometimes have on my cell-phone a picture of my father and me when I was 1 1/2 years old….He's holding me on his arm and I'm looking at the camera…so lovely!I also have a small picture of my parents & me when I was 7….

    I love the baby in the baby carraige…. with its little feet sticking up, you seem to be looking at it fondly like…no time for a photo I have a little one to look after!!!!!!!!!

  11. Andrea says:

    That picture is too sweet, Alison! We should all remember the child we were (and still are)!

  12. kali says:

    I keep one on my desk in my studio…I love looking at it and staring into that young face…
    It reminds me of that carefree existance. the hope and promise.
    Yours is so adorable, and yes, Finley certainly takes after you in such a big way!

  13. Heather says:

    The photo is so adorable! What a wonderful image. It inspires me to find one for myself!
