Musing with Max

In the beginning....

Leave it to Jane. As we Were.


Me at 6 months, my Mom was worried about my hair...or lack of. No prob in the eating department, obviously. I was an 8 lb. preemie, according to her she spit me out, same story for my brother who was also a preemie...or maybe her doctor couldn't count so well. Either way, look at that nose. And yes I had pierced ears, they were done on day three..it's a Cuban thing.

  1. Ohh look at baby Amelia, que linda.

    I wish my ears had been pierced at near birth, then i wouldn't have had to do it myself, do it too low and now am unable to wear earrings.

    Cubans, good food, smart thinking.

    1. Gracias.

      Know what you mean about the piercing, when I was 18 a friend asked me to pierce his ears. I remember crying (his, not mine), haven’t seen him since.

  2. A bonny baby! Too much hair early on isn't necessarily a Good Thing - remember how much suddenly washes off in the bath?

    1. If I remember right the piercing was done with the earrings (my Mom told me that) which looked huge on baby ears but once I grew up they were teeny tiny. My Mom’s house had a break in years ago, they went straight for the jewelry boxes on the dressers and took a whole bunch of worthless costume jewelry and my baby earrings, my Mother cried for days.

    1. There are a lot of people who feel it's not right, cruel or something, same with circumcisions. It's all customs. Never felt a thing!

  5. What a sweet little girl. Wish someone had pierced my ears on day three. At eighteen I about fainted when an M.D. did them - such a wimp!

    1. Not wimpy at all, I've known plenty of people who have had them done as adults...not pretty.

    1. Aww, thanks. It was probably food related.
