Thank you. Kids should be messy. It's their right.

Parents that are always on top of their kids to "keep them clean" to the point of distraction really irritate me.

If we could only bottle that joy and sell it (legally) :)

That had not occurred to me. We will work on it. :D

Wonderful collection of candids that will be treasured for many years. I love it when we can capture their sheer joy!

Thank you, Min. I'm thinking now I should have been down more on her level for the first half but I was trying to show what she was doing. When she discovered her nose I scrunched a little. I think Daddy may have put the original green paint on it. These are an example of why I think Digital is a minor miracle; I'm not at all sure I could have made them in film. Mixed light? Poor light!? Fast movin' kid? 36 exposures tops before a reload unless ya got one o' them monster backs only made for a few cameras that loaded bulk (and I never owned one)? So then ya shoot the number you might shoot digitally but it all has to processed. If it's neg it has to be proofed out, maybe contacts, then ya gotta slave over it with a loupe to find the 17 ya think are "best..." And the light (what there was of it) sucked and the kid was moving and the highest ISO available was 400 (most of these were made at ISO 1250) ... Digital SO rocks! :yay:

What do you all think about creating a photo book every couple of years? It would be a great keepsake! S-

Thanks, Steve, and indeed I have created a bunch of photo books already. For Christmas I made a calendar for Erin (specifically but shared it around). Erin loves calendars and Matt was in Barnes and Noble looking for a suitable one when I realized our better bet was to create a custom calendar of the Liddle Minion. :D
