Franklin D. Roosevelt's Baby Pictures

Most children in the 1880s had few, if any, portraits taken before they grew up. Franklin Roosevelt, being a child of privilege, had many. Just look at him here with his lovely baby curls and feathered bonnet, in a wicker side-saddle for two with his dog! By the time he was five, he lost his long curls. He eventually got to start wearing pants, too, although his mother put him in a kilt for his 5-year-old portrait. No one knew then that he'd eventually become the best president ever. Buzzfeed culled several pictures of Roosevelt's childhood for your enjoyment.
