Throwback Thursday is a new-ish weekly feature here on Random Thoughts Of A Twenty Something that started a few weeks ago. It is said that a picture can paint a thousand words and I wanted a way of looking back and reflecting on my past whether it be recent or from years gone by. There’s something quite intimate and revealing about sharing photographs from our lives and I’m always intrigued about the story behind the lens.
Last weeks image was of myself and my daughter and this week is of my little Elliot again. Here he is around 8 years ago enjoying a lovely bubble bath.
When I think of Elliot now with his slim frame and short stature it’s difficult to remember him as the chubby little baby and toddler that he was. I’m forever reminiscing about his cute little blond curls! These days his hair is so long that all the curls tend to drop out into gentle waves instead. In this day he was sharing a very bubbly bath with his uncle, my brother, to pass an afternoon at my mums house. My brother is 11 years younger than myself and only 5 years older than his nephew so over the years they have grown up together in a way. These days the two of them would much prefer to trade Minecraft tips or show each their latest tech!
What do you think of my photograph? Don’t forget to check back next Thursday to see what image I have chosen to share with you!
