Ready, Steady, Go?

I found this little collection of photos today, and for once, they will tie in well with the subject on Sepia Saturday - a  little girl.  For these were taken by my Bro in 1968, probably in June, and are of my daughter who crawled when she was six months old...









And you can see how pleased she was! 








 

She certainly had the urge to get up and go. She walked at eleven months, and has been getting up and going ever since - only these days, that's all over the world!

  1. She does look like she is ready to stand up and go. She looks like she is ready to meet the world head on. They are great photos.

  5. Awwwwww . . . I remember how cute she was. Even then you could see the quietly determined, unassuming, kind-hearted but strong, person within - and I love her to bits.
    (I think she learnt to crawl so early to escape from her older cousin who biffed her and bit her)

  10. Obviously her future was foretold in those early crawling months Pen.

  11. Very sweet trio of photos. She appears free, unrestrained by heavier layers of clothing and moving easily. I suspect she is more clothed in her travels now though.

  12. Early press-ups. She is obviously a 'get up and go' girl. Lovely pictures - so effective in black and white.

  13. How sweet! Isn't it fun to find forgotten photos of memorable moments in any color?

  14. How wonderful to have caught those moments in photos. After all, it wasn't digital photography when everything can be captured in detail.

  17. I wish my folks had taken photos of me crawling because apparently I did it backwards at a tremendous speed. Not sure what that says about me, but I really like your fun photos.
