The face behind the blog – a meme

The Face Behind the Blog and Throwback Thursday all in one!

Elizabeth at The Whole Family tagged me last week for The Face Behind the Blog, so here’s a look at me over the years – AKA more pictures of Amy than you could ever possibly care to see. 😉 In other words, I don’t think anyone is required to post this many pics, I just got a little pic-postin’ happy.

Scroll to the end to see if I tagged YOU!

OK, I’m tagging:
MB at Misplaced Mama because I don’t recall seeing very many pictures of her on her blog;
Christina at Momology because she’s always behind the camera;
and Jenny at Mommin’ it Up because I don’t know if I’ve EVER seen a picture of her.
Thanks in advance for playing along, ladies. 🙂

  1. How fun…thanks for sharing all those pictures of your life. I had to laugh though, b/c in that very first one of you on the giraffe- we had that exact same toy growing up. I remembered as soon as I saw it. Guess that is what happens when you grow up in the 70’s! 🙂

  2. Thanks for playing along! Looking at your pics, I could see your Crunchy transition! LOL! ANd I love you with glasses. They look so good on you. MY favorite pics were the nursing one in the green shirt, and the one of you hiking with baby in carrier, and lastly the B&W one of your family pregnant. Great pics! 🙂

  3. Umm..helllo! There are totally pics of me on Maya’s Mom. And I submitted a pic to your breastfeeding pic contest! But, if you are desperate for more, I suppose I shall play along. 🙂
    Seriously, these pics are so fun! Thanks for the tag!

  4. I just loved seeing the photos of your past – it’s always so interesting to see how you look as a kid and what you look like as an adult; the features of your face that look the same (your smile and your eyes) and that which changes (hairstyles, thinning face as we become adults). I often wonder how my son will look as he gets big – what sorts of features will remain the same, etc.

    You’ll have to tell us how you and Jody met. Wasn’t it over the Internet? I think you had mentioned you were living in different states, right?

  5. I was tagged for the face behind the blog and I was going to do a “Jessie timeline” too, unfortunately my scanner isn’t working and I don’t have all the pics in to do it yet. Great photos – I am sure that each one holds a very special memory for you – thanks for sharing them with us!

  6. How great to see Amy grow up! Thanks for the tag…I will need to scan in wsome old pictures of myself, and then I will play!

    And I LOVE the b&w family portrait of you pregnant with Julian!
