Yep I am officially old's my birthday! I am 62 years old. All signed up for Social Security .

I miss my Mother telling me all about how she was in labor for three days and three nights with me because I was born with my thumb in my mouth and my elbow was preventing my progress of being born. In those days c sections were not popular so my poor Mother suffered giving birth to me.

She told me that she was so exhausted after I was born that she slept for 24 hours and had not seen me yet. When they brought her new born in to her she said the baby had red hair and was really small. Luclily my Grandmother had seen me when I was first born and told my Mother that I had alot of black hair and I was a healthy fat baby.

Hospital's mistake...Mom said this is not my baby, my baby is fat and has lots of black hair...Gosh! I almost went to the wrong parents :)

This is me at the age of 9 months old. Look at that pout.

I haven't changed a bit right? Hee hee hee!
