To dream about looking at baby pictures, or seeing your own baby picture, suggests that you are unwilling to let go of your memories and the past. You may be idealizing the past and seeing it as better than it really was.
If you dream of seeing a baby picture of someone else (like a friend or boyfriend), you are making excuses for their bad behavior. You need to hold people responsible when they act badly, instead of letting them get away with it. Also see “Photographs” and “Photo Album”... My Dream Interpretation
The most common type of nightmare or bad dream is the one in which you are being chased or hunted down by something or someone. According to Jung, being chased or stalked as prey is a primal memory of your human collective unconscious and may refer to early times in the history of humankind when it was common to be chased, often to the death, by an animal.
If you are being chased in your dream it is important to think about who or what was chasing you, and then ask yourself whether there is anyone or anything in your life that reminds you of your pursuer.... The Element Encyclopedia

If you hear a message in a dream which you know to be important but simply cannot understand, even if it is in your own language, this is a clear symbol of frustration in waking life. A similar scenario would be if you are trying to explain something to someone but cannot make yourself understood. Both dreams speak of times in your life when, for some reason, communication is blocked, or you are misreading the emotions of someone or they are misreading you.
If you dream that you have muddled your words, this suggests a vain struggle to attract the attention of someone in your dream. The inability to say the right words when you meet them may symbolize feelings of inadequacy in real life or a deep sense of frustration that the important people in your life, or the people you respect and admire, do not appreciate or even notice you. One of the most distressing scenarios in a dream is when you try to talk or cry out but have no voice.
If you have such a dream, try to work out who is not hearing you in waking life; do you need to listen more and give your voice a rest?
Tripping up in public, forgetting your words when giving a speech, treading on someone’s toes in a dance, or spilling food and drink over a VIP can all betray a deep sense of social inadequacy, even with regard to people close to you. Perhaps your ineptitude masks an element of defiance, expressing your feelings of frustration with the stifling rules and norms of social convention.
If someone you know appears in a dream but you find yourself unable to recognize them, this suggests feelings of frustration or ambivalence towards that person in waking life. A similar sense is conveyed if you are looking on as a spy whilst a friend or lover commits a crime, or an illicit or compromising act.... The Element Encyclopedia
Example: ‘1 look down and the stairs and bannister rail are swarming alive with a black moving wave of crawling things, like some awful insects; and in the hallway is a swamp with crocodiles and other hideous things. My terror is terrible and I cry out to stop dreaming this nightmare.
The person who actually lived in this part of the house was the owner’s mother. She treated me badly but no one knew as she was artful in her abuse. She pulled me along by my hair, locked me in a cupboard, and once locked me in the orchard—four high walls and a hidden door’ (Rita). Something below us: as in Rita’s dream, where there is fear, it can depict past trauma which is not being faced (literally run away from); something we have left behind or we feel ‘above*.
Descent, going down stairs or in a lift: getting more down to eanh or practical; a return to difficulties after living in our fantasies or escapism, depression; sexual restraint; a return from meta conception (see aura). Descending into cave, cellar, hole: awareness of unconscious content, experience of womb existence. Example: Then I was climbing down a steep hill. Arriving at the foot I found rippling sparkling water. I stopped and looked around and found everything incredibly beautiful—the green fields and the pebbles in the water, the soft fresh air, then I looked up and the sky was a glorious picture, the sun so warm and the clouds fluffy and soft and pretty. I felt at peace and so happy, and thanked God with all my heart for giving us so much beauty’ (Mrs RE). Going down a hill: can mean loss of status, ageing, failure or death, but is also, as shown in the example, a positive sense of life after death. Idioms: feel down; down and out, down in the dumps; down to earth. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

Seeing old or even unfamiliar pictures in your dream may be a reflection of how you remember certain parts of your life. These pictures may represent longing for a time that has passed. However, other interpretations can be made. Although this dream may be difficult to interpret, the dreamer may need to put significant amount of effort into its understanding.

Photographs are a record of your past and mark the passage of time so if photographs of your life appear in your dream, this may represent memories, nostalgia; or perhaps your dreaming mind is pointing to a specific period in your life to remind you of lessons learned then but since forgotten.
If the photographs are not familiar to you, your dream may have been signifying an aspect of yourself or your sense of direction in waking life. Was the photo clear or out of focus? This may signify how certain or uncertain you are of your attitudes.
If you were taking the photograph, this suggests that you feel in control of your daily life.
If you were studying a negative or are in a photographic darkroom, this suggests negativity in your daily life but you may also simply be waiting to see what will develop.
If the photos come to life, this suggests the living influence of past experience and your continuing involvement in what the picture depicts. Talking photos suggests that you need to remember or take notice of someone or something in your waking life.... The Element Encyclopedia

The frame around a picture completes it. We display imagery that reflects parts of who we are through pictures of loved ones and moments in time from our past.
