    I would recognize a page from “The World” newspaper anywhere…am I right?

    Love the feet.

    OY, that last photo. It’s the tiny baby clothes that get me, every time.

    I didn’t know you started dating JB when he was, what, in high school!? Lol, I kid. You guys are great and this is such a sweet assortment of life-schwag.

    It’s uncanny how many tears I’ve shed (happy & sad) for a family I’ve never met.

    Oh baby feet…

    If you have a bunch of hard-to-part-with baby clothes, you could cut out squares for making into a quilt. You don’t even have to know how to sew, there are people who will do it for you.

  8. Noemi on April 18th, 2012 2:12 pm

    Oh, you two look so damn happy.

  9. Jo on April 18th, 2012 2:34 pm

    I love this post :)
    You guys look so young! And so happy!

    That’s really lovely. All I found this week (packing for the house painters) were manuals to products we no longer own. Many, many of them.

    I keep wanting to say, “My god, you look so young!” about that uppermost picture, but the implication is that now you look like some sort of grizzled hag, which duh, is not the case.
    Operation Declutter is awesome because it gives you a plausible excuse to think about all these wonderful moments. (Also, hey, you got married two months before we did! That was a great summer followed by a really terrible autumn. Uh, never mind.)

    So if JB is John W, how did he get the name JB? And I don’t believe I’ve ever seen the name Whichello….what heritage is that? Names aside, what a great wedding photo! The happiness just shines through.

    All I can say is awwwwwwwwww

  14. JMH on April 19th, 2012 2:39 am

    Love this!

  15. Yogamomma on April 19th, 2012 5:06 am

    Oh those little feet brought tears to my eyes.

    *heart stuck in throat*

    Gingerest’s comment made me nearly spit out my morning caffeine because I was thinking the exact same thing!
    I reorganized all of my kiddo’s old clothes last summer and for the smaller sizes it took much longer to pack than it should have for the exact same reason. Awwwww so tiny! How did they EVER FIT IN THESE???

  18. lisa-marie on April 19th, 2012 7:57 am

    Wow, awesome treasures!

  19. Judy on April 19th, 2012 8:20 am

    @Belle – I was just coming in here to ask the same thing. There’s a story there, I know it!

  20. JennyA on April 19th, 2012 9:21 am

    Isn’t “JB” short for “Johnny Bravo”? Or have I gotten it wrong? [realizes having displayed many years of Sundry-reading]

    You pressed your baby’s feet in cheese?
