I have been posting so many photos of Binny lately, I thought that I would post something of Mae. I was going to post the outfit she wore to school yesterday. It was "wear your words" day at school for Library Week, and the children were asked to wear clothing with words on it. Do you know how hard it was to find something with words on it? I make it a point not to buy clothing for my children with lots of logos and pictures on them. Same goes for Hannah Montana or High School Musical themed clothing, not in my house!
After rummaging around in the basket of her clean laundry, Mae ran upstairs to rifle through her dresser drawers. Finally, she found a shirt that normally she would refuse to wear but since it fit the "it has words on it" criteria she quickly put it on and agreed to let me take her picture in it. Shocking, I know! ...but the photos looked like crap.
Honestly they were so bad, I refuse to show them on the Internet. I think there is something wrong with my new (50 mm) lens
or more likely, operator error. I can't seem to get it to focus properly. I don't have problems with my other 2 lenses, and for crying out loud it's brand spankin' new, it should work! Anyhow, I get it out occasionally to see if I can figure out the problem, it will magically work. Well, that was dumb, because all of the shots were fuzzy. As I was looking at the photos on the computer I thought to myself, this never happened when I had that old film *gasp* Nikon. That thing was manual to the max. Manual focus, twist to your favorite aperture, don't forget to attach the flash, awesome camera. I love the ease and speed of my new camera but the photos from the old Nikon were fantastic.

...and her outfit is pretty darn cute too!
*** sorry to all of you, who like me are baby crazy. Just looking through these old photos, makes me want to jump my husband and have another.
