Randy as a Baby in 1944 -- Post 549 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Several months ago, I discovered an envelope of small photographs saved when my mother died in 2002 - it was hiding in plain sight in the Genea-Cave! 

Included in the photo cache was this oldie-but-goodie - a studio photograph of me as a baby:

A baby with 8 teeth, some blonde hair, and I could sit up and laugh or giggle, so that might be age 8 to 12 months?  Perhaps a one-year-old photograph?  So definitely in 1944 (I was born in October 1943).  

I have no idea where this was taken, but it might be a photo taken for my father to have in his wallet when he entered the U.S. Navy in August 1944.  The time is right.  

Cuteness as a baby seems to run in every family.  Who knows how a person turns out 75 years later?
