One more trip down memory lane...

How cute is THAT little guy? As you can tell by the clothes and hairstyles, this is an OLD picture..Circa 1973 to be exact.. Im the little girl with plaidish looking dress(actually looks pretty good for that time, to be honest) and thats my dad with the 70s hair. He looks like an ex football player to me.. lol Actually, to be exact, he looks like the slimmed down version of Roger Schulz from THE BIGGEST LOSER.. lol And the little guy is my brother, Jimbo.. He was born on December 30,1971..5 days after Christmas, so that explains the candy canes on his chocolate cake.. lol.. I am sure I was allowed to help put them on.. There is a good possibility if I wasnt allowed to, I would have taken liberty, anyway.. haha

This was right around the time my parents found out that Jimbo was autistic..He was beginning to show symptoms at that time..He said alot of words and spoke in small 2 or 3 word sentences until he had his DPT shot at 18 mos.. That was when he stopped talking and started to withdraw into his own world.. Looking at this picture you would have NEVER, in a million years, have guessed this cutie would have been autistic..He was a little precious thing, wasnt he? I am going to find more pictures of him as a little guy and post them.. He was so cute! Kinda looks like Tyler when he was that age..::Sniff Sniff::
