Adam, age 3
Minneapolis, Minnesota (1987) 

I was obviously very young here, but I remember being a total clown and goof when I was little.

I still am.

But I clearly had a penchant for pulling together a look.

The layers, the shades of blue, the textures and pattern. With a little bit of undershirt coming through, just like Dad.

This picture makes me realize I'm basically the same person today that I was back then. I still smile uncontrollably, and I'm still a cornball who makes a fool of himself to get a laugh.

And at 6' 2" and a bean-pole, I probably weigh the same as I did in this picture: Chubs!

Adam's first, famous-person same sex crush:
Bill Murray (in "Ghostbusters")

You should send this to Modern Family and ask them to use it as a baby picture of Cam. It's perfect for his expression and your little gay self could be famous. :)

What a cute kid! From your description I must say I am likely to find your current self rather adorable too. And Bill Murray? Respect!

This is a great chance to get a word in to maybe include then and now pics.
I clowned my whole life - now I see, to make sure others wouldn't look too far inside and see what I was hiding.
