[quote=""Alaric""]I'm the same, the only thing that has changed is my hair colour - it's gotten a lot darker as I've got older. When I was young I had very light brown hair but now I have near-black. Also, my eyes have changed colour apparently ... mum said they were green when I was born, they're now blue.[/quote]


I was very blonde when I was born...now just brown.

EC - is that a cowgirl outfit? I ask because I had a cowgirl vest decorated with fake cowhide, white leather fringe, and metal stars to go with my cowgirl boots! I think I was 3 or 4 years old. Anyway, I loved the little vest SO much that my mother saved it for me and I keep it in a box with a little skirt she made for me.

After I outgrew the vest, I got another cowgirl outfit with red boots, red denim jeans, a red gingham shirt and of course, a red straw cowgirl hat. By then I was 7 years old and crazy about riding horses.

This is me age 4 1/2, on the right, after my brother was born. You can probably guess the approximate year by the outfits and my mom's glasses.

I'm loving all the pictures! Boswell, in all that pink you'd still be really trendy as a little girl today!
Leyland - a cowboy outfit! No dollies for me for Christmas! I would have loved a toy 'wigwam' - as they were called then to go with it, but had to make do with the clothes horse instead! Sadly I no longer have that outfit. How lovely that your mother saved yours!
