Maybe the mom of this precious little newborn shouldn't have been the one taking the photo!

Maybe the mom of this precious little newborn shouldn't have been the one taking the photo!

A new mom sent this photo as a Daily Darling (yes, we really are almost out!) and captioned it: “Spencer (age 3) assures the nervous, new mommy of this sweet, little baby (read: defenseless from germs), that his feet may be dirty but his hands are certainly clean.

Too funny to be a Daily Darling, so I had to write about it! I’m sure this article about babies and germs isn’t all that reassuring, but I thought I’d link it again in case it helps. And thanks to Spencer for reminding me about going barefoot and getting my feet dirty! šŸ˜‰

Alec in leā€¢top, with his tricyle and...is he holding a bug?

Alec (Yellow Turtle baby model!) in leā€¢top, circa 1993, with his tricycle and...is he holding a bug?

J. at Yellow Turtle found a “vintage” photo of her son in leā€¢top and sent it over for fun. I loved the old tricycle and the whole composition of this photo; the un-mowed grass, the dandelions, the lone tennis shoe and little Alec looking like the quintessential, all-American portrait of little boy having a great summer! Of course, I wanted to share with everyone on the blog, so I asked J. for a more recent photo of her son, Alec (now 18), and she sent over a few. I noted to her that there seemed to be a cycling theme, and she said her niece, Alec’s cousin, has MS, so Alec has been doing the Bike MS ride since he was 12! Alec and his dad do this ride every year. Last year Alec raised over $2000 – they both rode 75 miles each day, in the hills of Vermont! J. and her daughter are the cooler girls – they wait at the rest-stops with drinks and food. Great family support! We’re looking forward to photos from this year’s Bike MS in Vermont which will be held August 8-9, 2009…Go, Alec!

Alec, now, still being a little boy at heart! Photo at left is from his Bike MS, 2008
