Photohunt 56: Childhood



I don't have a lot of childhood pictures with me, most of them are in my parent's home back in the Philippines. Of the limited pictures with me, this is my favorite. I'm one year old here and I'm not sure why I am crying but everyone says that I'm a colicky baby and worse I do it at night when everyone is sleeping.

One afternoon, my grandmother was very happy that she was able to put me to sleep in a cradle. But that cradle is traditional one and it is outside the house and tied in the tree. Unfortunately, it rained but they didn't want to take me because I will surely cry if I wake up so they untied the cradle instead, and brought it inside the house ;)

Interesting choice for your favorite, LOL.

One of my favorite photos of my son is when he was about 6 mos old and had his bottom lip stuck out and was about to cry.
