Darn....something's wrong with my camera today!! Actually, the camera's fine but it's the the usb port socket point that's the problem..I can't seem to upload the pics from the digicam to the pc and I keep getting the message This is no Cf card in the connected camera or cardreader even when I've already plugged the wire in *sigh*..I think that my daily taking of pictures and uploading has probably led to this seemingly wear-and-tear problem. Not sure what to do now..I gotta go search for the warranty card first (it's probably lost) and see whether the problem can be rectified. Anyone encountered such a problem before?

I think it's a sign that I should be taking lesser pics too or else people may think I have a reverse Oedipal complex ... I'd actually just sent a loadful of my digitial pics to an online shop to be printed and since I hadn't had any of my pics printed since Aidan was @7 months plus, u can imagine how many prints there were and the price of it all *awk*.. Mom was just looking tru the photo albums, which I'd spent the last night arranging nicely and commented that I should mebbe take lesser pics or else Aidan may need a big cabinet just to store all his childhood pictures. He already has 3 huge photo albums to store all the pics taken since birth..

Hmm but I realise I don't have much 'inspiration' nor inclination to update my LJ when I have no pics..Oh well, heh..maybe if it's really spoilt, I can go buy a new digicam :D~~ Any good recommendation for an idiot proof, relatively okay-priced and easy to use digicam? I've gotten so used to my Nikon tho..that if I buy another cam, I may choose to get another Nikon but the main con of this cam is that the battery life is really short..

Aidan seems to be getting quite attached to me lately. He's constantly arrowing me to be the one to carry him and when either hubby or my in-laws are carrying him, the minute he spots me, he'll raise his arms and beckon at me and start trying to climb out of whoever's arms he's in. And whenever I try to transfer him outta my arms to theirs, he'll start resisting..sometimes to the point of crying. It doesn't help that he's gotten kinda heavy (about 10kg+) *awk*..Sometimes I admit, it does feel good to be so 'wanted' but there are times when I badly need a break though..

Hopefully, this will be a phase. At least he's still easily distracted and will stop clamouring for me once he is tempted with food or some toy.

Took these pics of the little one in a pink pj a while back during the CNY week..No..I'm not in the habit of letting Aidan cross-dress..Just that he was at a friends' place till quite late and so they lent me their daughter's pajamus for him to wear and this was him, early next morning having his biscuit snack..Pretty in pink eh~~

Hate it when stuff gets busted for no reason. Love your pictures, but like your writing too!

heh..i was expecting it to happen sooner or later coz i don't exactly treat my stuff very well and I do use it really really often. My camera is kinda fallin apart coz of my frequent usage already :P~~

Am just glad that i have a cheaper alternative to fixing it coz buyin a new cam would be really expensive~~

Dang, how many pics do you take a day? If it weren't for me, Stephen wouldn't have any pics or videos of him at all. DH is so lazy.... Still, I probably only take about 30 pics a week on average and 5-10 min. of video a week.

hmm..i don't exactly count the no. of pics i take a day..sometimes, not many like abt 5-10 but when we go out or when he meets with his other toddler friends, i tend to take more. Difficult to quantify but let's just say..it's alot!!

Same here..i think hubby is 'lazy' with the cam coz he knows I'm the 'on' one..But at least he's always ard to help me take pics of both mummy n child :)

Lucky! I sometimes have to take pics of us w/the camera propped up somewhere. Prob is, DH is not such a good photographer and he knows it. :P I went to the bathroom yesterday and stephen came in, sat down on the potty, and was "reading" his book. I called out to DH to come take a pic of us (for family eyes only, haha), but he never showed. ::fume::

LOL..i guess ur hubby doesn't like to take pictures much. Hubby doesnt mind it and he's quite a perfectionist at times. He always claim to take the better picture..(but he hates to be in pictures tho)..

heh..i have a pic of aidan on the potty 'reading a magazine'..took it of him when he was abt 7 months old and till now, it's one of my fave pic of him even tho it's quite fuzzy :)

Here it is :D

He was only 7 months and already sitting on the potty? Stephen just started showing interest a few weeks ago. Doesn't like it when I pull his pants down, though. Guess he's taking babsteps toward getting potty trained.
