This is why I have 285 pictures in my April folder.

I am completely incapable of deleting anything. I've been through my April Shutterfly album at least 5 times trying to delete some pictures and I can't. Because MAH BAYBEE! And NOM CUTE NOM!

Example: These pictures are nearly identical. If they are not identical, they are kind of stupid. But can I delete the picture of her cheesing so hard that her eyes close? No. Can I delete the serious Get Out of My Face I'm Trying To Play picture? Um...also no.


Perhaps I would have more time to blog if I spent less time looking at 285 imperceptible toddler expressions?

So now you're pissed, and you're all, "I clicked over from Google Reader for this?" and if you read this blog I bet you're just the type of person to give your computer screen the finger. 

But maybe those baybee pictures will make you feel guilty or at least a little more forgiving?  And then you'll come back tomorrow(ish) when I tell you about how I have a Life Coach for the next six weeks?  Maybe?


Please?

I totally know what you mean. I have folders and folders where my daughter is doing the exact same thing about 100 times and I just can't delete them. Hence, my computer is SLOWWWWW. My brand new computer. Tis what happens when you have babes.

Oh, melt my heart!

My camera numbers the pictures, right? It goes up to 10,000. My camera has had to start over. And I still have ALL of those pictures.

I do the exact same ridiculous thing.

Not only do I have all the pictures I've ever taken, I also have duplicates in smaller size so they were easier to email. You are not alone...

you are not alone my friend! No lie I have over 25K pictures of y kids in the last 4 years - yes 25,000 it's insane! But I can't delete them - do you remember the days when you only got 24 pictures at a time?! I usually take more than that in one sitting to make sure I get a good one!!

I have 117 pictures I took in 24 hours...and can't delete any of them. It's a sickness and the reason Jared has to keep upgrading my storage b/c I'm a picture hoarder. :) Maybe we need a 12 step program?

Amy said...

I have flash drives dedicated to her pictures...I think I have somewhere around 5000 pictures. Need another flash drive...

I want a life coach OMG!

Alyssa said...

I only give my computer screen the finger because it can't reciprocate.
Dying to hear about the life coach.

We went to Disney World last month - 6 days = over 1,000 pictures of my two girls.

I was able to narrow them down to the top 250 for a scrapbook, but I can't cut any more out (and all 1,000 originals will never be deleted from my iphoto).

I understand. Thank goodness for digital cameras.

OMG you cannot delete those pictures! They are too cute and perfect and I love that she's squinting her eyes she's smiling so hard! AWWWW

Deena said...

Life Coach? SERIOUSLY? What the hello? You don't need a life coach!
You are too well put together for a life coach!

Courtney said...

Okay, now that is funny, because when it's a short post and I click from google reader, I really do sometimes think, is that it? But no, there is no middle finger involved. She's adorable and I don't blame you at all for taking so many pictures.
Keep 'em comin'!

Daria said...

Life coaches are THE best! Good luck! And if it's any consolation, you will probably have an easier time deleting photos of the little precious in the months and years to come - once you've accummulated thousands more perfect pics! ;-)

Olivia is about 4 months older than my baby, and I love your blog because it is like a portal into my future. It lets me know what to expect, like, for example, pizza vomit at 10/11 months. Fun.

*love* the eyes squeezed shut picture, beautiful baby...

And really, the whole collage is great (my new favorite thing to do too!)

I am so the type of person to give my computer screen the finger. But, alas, this time I did not. Not only because you made me laugh out loud with that phrase, but because your cute baby is staring at me and people would want to know why I was flipping off the baby. Well played, Jenneper, well played. :)
