I discovered, in my archives, a baby book I received from my parents about five years ago. It describes some events that occurred in the first few years of my life. I am going to share with you now some of the entries from this book that I find intriguing and my comments today.
“Born March 24 1971”
“Five weeks – smiles a lot”
So, it would appear I was a friendly guy from a very young age but as you will read later, I was communicating on a different level.
“Six weeks – talks”
It is interesting to note that I talked but no details were given about what I said, this would have been late April early May 1971.
“May 21 – Kevin laughed today”
I wonder, did I not laugh before then?
This was the same day I disrupted a wedding ceremony.
“Uncle XXXXX wedding May 21. Kevin slept until the minister asked if anyone objected to the marriage then he started to scream. XXXXX (my father) took him out quickly.”
“October 6 – crawled for 1st time”
I later read that November 15 I pulled myself up onto my feet in my playpen and walked around it by November 28. The strange thing is that a later entry states I first walked “June 4, 1972”. I am curious what I was doing between November and June? I noticed another timeline that recorded “May - takes a couple steps on his own” and “June 5 - walked short distances several times”.
“April 19, 1972 – has eight teeth now” it is a bit hilarious that at the age of 47 (2018) I have only 10 teeth left.
