Mum kept a big photo album with pictures of me. Growing up, I always liked to look at all these pictures. However, I remember distinctly that the following pictures annoyed me quite a bit. I felt awful that the pictures showed me being so very plump! When I was told I looked ‘cute’ I tended not to believe it. I was self conscious at an early age and mostly didn’t feel ‘cute’ at all. I still often don’t like my picture taken because I think I might look awful!
The adults in the pictures are my Mum, Aunty Elsa (Ilse) and Uncle Adi. The little dog belonged to Aunty and Uncle.

I've lived in Australia since 1959 together with my husband Peter. We have four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. I started blogging because I wanted to publish some of my childhood memories. I am blogging now also some of my other memories. I like to publish some photos too as well as a little bit of a diary from the present time. Occasionally I publish a story with a bit of fiction in it. Peter, my husband, is publishing some of his stories under berlioz1935.wordpress.com

I love these photos. Just beautiful. I wish my parents have more toddler pictures of me. Photos like these are priceless. They help us remember and connect to our past. Thanks for sharing them my friend. It brought a smile to my day. Have a great weekend.
Glad you liked these photos. Have a great weekend with your wife and son with lots of fantastic memories about your trip back home.
These are awesome! 🙂
Thank you very much, Eliz, for looking through all my recent posts and liking them. As far as the toddler photos are concerned, I am happy that I get such a good response with publishing these very old photos. There are more to come!
oh my gosh what a beautiful little girl you were….you just glow in those photos…oh Uta~not plump, gorgeous….
Thanks for stopping by, Kate. Of course I rather like the photos myself now.
You were such a beautiful baby Aunty Uta. You could have been a child model 🙂
Thanks for the compliment, dear Bookjunkie.
