Some months ago I unearthed my baby book. It contains a bunch of info such as my parents’ first thoughts about me (“Mama and Papa thought she was a baby boy. She’s heavier than her brother and sisters”), my favourite toys (“Squeeze ball, turtle, rattle, stuffed toys”), and my first words (“Papa, baba”).
The interesting stuff is the pages with my drawings, which were all done in 1998 when I was about 4. This was my very first sketchbook!
From all the misspelled names, you can see how much I struggled with writing the letter ‘Z’. Something else I noticed was that I was very fond of drawing tables, chairs, beds, triangles, stars, suns, and stick people with big heads and very short limbs.
On the second image you’ll see that my mom stuck a small envelope on the page labeled, “Hazel’s First Haircut”, which occurred on February 15th, 1995. My baby hair is still in there, by the way. Is that creepy or what?
