Baby Lori, Mom Linda and Mama Lee in May 1974 -- Post 605 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I  can't help it, I can't do a wordless post!  I found some more family photos hiding in Linda's family photo boxes.  This is one of my favorite photographs:

This is one of the first photos we have of our daughter Lori, held by her mother Linda, and her grandmother Edna (Schaffner) Leland.  It's a three-generation maternal line!  This was taken in May 1974 soon after Lori's birth, at our first home.  Linda's parents came down to help her with the first weeks after the birth because I had to go back to work.  They were overjoyed with their first grandchild.  We were overjoyed with our first child.  It was a happy time!

These photos were scanned from photographs created from developed film and are not particularly sharp, but they are what we have!

Several times a year when our children were growing up, Linda sent photographs to her parents and brother in San Francisco.  When her father died in 2002, her brother sorted out the photos and gave Linda the ones that were of our family and the ones interacting with them.  They were given to us in a big box of stuff back in 2006, and we finally looked at them last year!  I've started digitizing them for use in these Wordless Wednesday posts.
