Looking to the past and seeing a reflection

This past week I took my mom out to lunch for Mother’s day.  After lunch she gave me my old baby book.  When I was younger I would look at it all the time, but it’s been at least 15 20 years since I’ve seen it.

I spent some time looking at it and it’s weird to see the pictures.  I see pictures of my mom and dad and they look so young. I can see the family resemblance between my dad and brother.  My grandfather looks just like my Uncle Mike. 

Looking at the pictures I wonder what my parents are thinking.. if they were as scared/excited about having me as I am about having Sophia. 

I wonder what the back story was behind some of the pictures.  If pictures speak a thousand words, how many words do they not speak?
