Look here, Aaron. Smile!

I have spent this weekend backing up Aaron's photos. Of course, they are on my laptop but even though they've been backed up before I still haven't deleted a single one. Unfortunately, I'm running out of room. I also have them copied onto my external hard drive. And then right now, I'm burning CDs of all the photos. JUST IN CASE.

I think my mother managed to fit all of my 0-2yrs photos on a couple of photo albums. As of today, we have 8.13GB of Aaron. What does that mean exactly? How many photo albums? I'll discount 3GB of this as video files and average each photo size to 1.5MB. So, if I my math is correct (5,130,000,000 / 1,500,000), we have 3420 photos. WOW! Kids today!

No wonder he's been flashing us fake smiles lately. I don't mind. They're funny and I think I like them almost as much as the real ones.




Thank goodness for the digital camera. After multiple fake ones, I usually manage to get a genuine one.

Hmmm...I wonder whether Aaron or Leya is the most-photographed child on earth? When we visit Leya, we have to smear her with sunblock so she won't be burned by all the flashes. Digital photography is great, isn't it? You can take bazillions of pictures, throw out the ones you don't like, and not spend a cent on developing (like our poor parents did with the pictures of you and I). Cute photos!

What a cutie-pie!! I spent some time a few weeks ago going through all my picturs and it was a huge undertaking. I am having prints made of all my favorites. I fear technology is going to crash and I will have nothing.
