I ran across this photo I had not seen before on a pro-Palin blog. The blog post itself doesn’t give any information about the picture but in the comments someone asks about it and the blogger answers that she believes it’s from Sarah’s 2009 calendar. US and OK magazines had access to the pics as the clothes match these covers. The picture obviously would have to be from sometime between April and September of ‘08 due to Trig’s size.
The reason that I am curious about this picture is because the right ear doesn’t appear to be ruffled from what I can see when I enlarge the image. If anyone is able to blow the picture up and retain clarity it would be interesting to see if the ear is indeed unruffled. If the photo hasn’t been flipped this might be one of the first pictures of round-eared Trig. If anyone can identify the original source for these photos it would be useful to verify the date which might give us a clue as to when the ruffle-eared baby was replaced.
If anyone has info please e-mail me or leave a comment.
Additional info: It has been brought to my attention that the picture is probably from the baby shower or taken at the same time as Sarah and Trig are wearing the same outfits. However, I am still curious as to whether or not the right ear is really unruffled. I enlarged the picture and I couldn’t see the ruffle. If someone has expertise with photos perhaps you could take a look. Maybe the picture is flipped and the left ear appears to be the right. Is there anyway to make that determination?
