Clean White Shirt

Maybe I haven't posted for a while because I haven't taken many pictures or videos lately. Today I was going through photos from the summer of 2008, when Dorian was born, because I still haven't printed a single photo out of the thousands I have taken since he was born (20 months ago!). So I was trying to decide which ones to print, and feeling like I was choosing way too many but at the same time, not nearly enough. I think I have exactly one picture of myself as a newborn baby. I narrowed Dorian's down to 8 from his first day of life, and another 5 or 6 from the next day. That's as many pictures as my mom took of me during my first, I don't know, 2 or 3 YEARS of life. Do you think he will appreciate having so many pictures of himself, or do you think he will roll his eyes in boredom whenever I pull out the scrapbooks? Oh well, I'm not doing it for him, I'm doing it for his wife.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the last day this shirt was white (why did I let him eat an apple while wearing it?): I've moved all his toys into my office, so we hang out in there a lot. He likes to squeeze between the bookcase and the wall, and he pretty much always has a car or two in each hand. Wouldn't you like to see the rest of my bookshelf?

awww! yes, i want to see the rest. I don't know if he will want the pix. some people throw stuff like that away. my kids love looking at theirs. What i've done anyway. i do wonder if the pictures we have of our ancestors are so valuable becasue we have so few of them.

Robby likes to look at pictures from when he was a baby. I am of the opinion that you can never have too many pictures.

yes.....white, or should I say off-white or tie-dye shirts? I always made Ev take his shirt off to eat (if it was white) or sometimes we put an old mommy or daddy shirt over the top (which works unless it's lots of grape juice).

Apples are so deceptive. They look innocent and them wham there is the front with a brown stain that cannot be removed. At least with spaghetti you can predict the outcome.

My solution. . .Navy Blue!
I realized just the other day that nearly all of Parker's shirts are navy. It helps with the stains. Now if I could only do something about all the holes he chews (literally) in his shirts.

But, the question is, how many pictures did your parents take of your oldest sibling? I think I've taken fewer and fewer pictures of my kids as we've gone along.

James loves his scrapbooks. We have to "read" them on a regular basis. I just think it is sad that none of my friends believe I am a scrapbooker.
