Trend in Picture Taking

I was flipping through the pictures that we have on our computer, and I noticed something (besides the fact that I have a lot of embarrassing pictures of Dylan). When Andi was a young baby, we took quite a few pictures of her. If she had the gas smile, we took a picture, if she was wearing an outfit that she hadn't worn before, we took a picture, if she spit up or pooped, we took a picture. Well, maybe not the last one. But for the first year of her life, Andi had like 4,000 pictures taken of her. I was looking for pictures of Peyton, and guess how many I found. 11. Yeah, there seems to be a slight difference in the number of pictures taken between our first child and third child.

Why is that? I don't know. It's not like I don't have the same camera as I did when Andi was a baby. It's not like we don't love Peyton as much. I think it's because the novelty of having a new baby kind of got worn off. It's hard to notice every little change in a kid when you have a 3 year old singing "Yellow Submarine" to you. Our kids all look the same anyway, so we could pass a baby picture of Andi off as Peyton if we needed to.

So, I think I'll set a goal to take more pictures of Peyton. Will I acheive it? Well, let's just say that my New Years Resolution was to lose weight. I would start working on the picture goal right now, but the kid is asleep, and I don't think his mother would be too happy if I woke him up.

Here's Peyton playing with a blue cup.

That's not Peyton, that's Andi! You can tell because that is the blue carpet we had in our Boise apartment, but then you already knew that didn't you? Smart alec!

That's pretty good! We managed to okay with the picture taking thing but the video camera is another story all together...I think the last time we got it out was July.
