Cute baby! My friend has just given birth so I am very much appreciating cute babies today!
The baby in the crib almost seemed like a doll and not a real person. Raising kids then compared to know with all the new things sure would have been a lot of work back then, diapers and all.
This baby is only 65 today and could be reading this blog! :-)
It looks like the sofa is also a sofa bed, no doubt with the nasty metal bar under the mattress that made a good night's sleep impossible.
The gown she is wearing almost looks like a baptismal gown. I wonder if Easter doubled as the baby's baptism or if they were getting a secondary use out of the gown. By the 40s, I thought babies had stopped wearing long gowns except for baptism. Not sure, though.
I don't think that is the mama. She is holding it more like an aunt or grandparent. (:
