We got a new camera!!!

Okay, so I know that this post is long overdue. I think I’ve been feeling overwhelmed by how much I have to catch up on. So, I decided to make this post with the most recent stuff and I’ll work my way backwards as I have time. I’ve already started the posts that cover what’s been going on the past few months, so when I do post them, they will post previous to this one, so keep an eye out. Phew, that was a run-on sentence.

Anyway, our most recent big news, if you couldn’t guess from the title of this post, is that we got a new camera. Jon and I decided it was time to upgrade since both of our cameras are pretty old and not very well-suited for taking pictures of a baby. Not to mention that neither of them are currently functioning properly. So we decided to upgrade to something with a little more juice. This is it here:


I haven’t figured out all the bells and whistles on it yet (it has a lot), but we have managed to get a couple good pictures out of it so far. Here are some of the pictures we took with it the first day we got it:

As you can see, Jon discovered that Ben likes to play in our hamper.

Yesterday, I got Ben all dressed up in a new outfit from his Nammy and did his hair to take some pictures of him. It was pretty much a photo-shoot. Ben was a pretty good sport but he kept trying to grab the camera, which made things tricky. Mostly, I wanted to get a money shot to submit in the Regis and Kelly beautiful baby competition (the deadline is today). This is the one I chose for the competition:

Here is a slideshow of some of the other pictures from the day, including the ones where Ben decided he had had it with the picture-taking.

Well, there you go. Hopefully this post will tide everyone over while I work on posts of happenings since Thanksgiving. It might take a bit to sort through all the pictures and such, but I’ll do my best to get all caught up this weekend.
