So-o-o-o Big!

Today would have been Eldon Harms' 93rd birthday.

This photo shows him at the age of two.

His siblings had taught him to hold out his arms like that and say, "So-o-o-o big!" — a trick they probably learned from Edna Ferber's novel, which had been published the year Eldon was born.

Another photo, stored in a different album but taken the same day, I think, shows little Eldon doing his So Big trick again.
