Cute baby pictures of you! And the day before #2 you sure weren't very big!!

That last shot: your baby girl already has that Super Model "I'm so beyond you" look down!

Annika said...

Wow, Freya looked just like a bowling ball before she was born.

I love seeing the old pictures! Now I know where your girls got their high degree of adorableness from.

Look at you and that cute preggo picture! I looked like a whale...you're cute!

Jen said...

Wait a second. That's you the day before you gave birth to your second child? I'm afraid I have to hate you now.

Oh, Nell! I loved this post. The pictures are soooo fun. My hair looked almost exactly like yours in the nanny photo. Big curls!

Man, you wear pregnancy soooo beautifully. I felt so frumpy and bloated. I would have LOVED to look so amazing!

Cathy said...

Oh, thanks for sharing these! I love other people's childhood photos. I'm envying those curls.

As for the preggo shot -- Heather's right about the cute belly. I blew up all over. Unfair!

OMG I cannot believe how much baby Freya looks like baby you!

Great pictures. And what a cute pregnant woman you were - Ironflower was born the week after Freya and my pic from the same date is TWICE that size. But the bling picture is my favorite.

She says said...

Wow, your daughter does look just like you.

Great pics, though. Love them. However, in 1980 when you were a cute kidster, I could have been your babysitter. I'm so old!
