Babies and Memories

Dec 9, 2008 at 11:23 AM

The staff here at the hotel have babies. They have been bringing their kiddos over to meet me and I get to talk to some very cute, adorable little children.

Makes me miss mine.

I have a thousand pictures of my whippersnappers. At least.

What I realized after I won the camera was that the people bring their children to meet you here because they don't have pictures to carry around because - among the many other things they don't have, they don't have cameras.

Or access to cameras.

Well, as you know, I now have a camera that was a total blue-lightning-bolt unexpected surprise.

So last night, I went to the house of the girlfriend of the desk clerk, William. And I took a picture of him, him with his baby, his girlfriend, her older boys, and I'm told there simply are nearly no other photos of these people around. I'm told there are no photographs of these three children anywhere.

Amazing, impossible. How does a child make it to 5 without a photo snapped?

Think how precious these pictures would be to you, if you had no others.
And here is the one of me, that William took while I met his little baby boy.

I know these weren't the pictures you were expecting. I'll try to get some of those too.


  1. Aw, look at all those little troublemakers! *sigh* I can't wait until my next shift at the church nursery where I can get my fix of cuddling babies.

    It is amazing that there are no photos of the children in those families. And also amazing what we learn to take for granted here.

    Yep, baby's cute enough to wrap William around his finger.

  3. C.S. Perry Says:

    I can't imagine not having pictures of my son. I'm glad you got these.
    Also...I think my boy had that same sleeper.

    Right On.
