I went and got myself a present. This:

I'd been wanting a fancy-dancer camera for a year now and I just broke down and got myself one. I have barely begun to learn it, but man-oh-man, this thing takes a purty picture:

Fun! Also, in other news, Gwen has this new thing where she pulls her paci out of her own mouth and then complains loudly until I replace it. Over and over and over again. At THREE IN THE MORNING. This has inspired many comedic interludes between Gavin and I, as we fumble in the dark hissing at each other to please our little task master and get her back to bed. Most recently, this little vingnette, in reference to finding the Twilight Turtle Light, so I could see to find her lost paci:
Me: "Where is the f#*&ing turtle??"

Gavin: "I don't know where the damn turtle is. NO!! Don't put the crib light on!! IT's TOO BRIGHT!" (fumbles with button on side of crib. Light remains on while music begins to play, loudly)

Me: "Well that's just perfect. Well done."
Seriously, it's like the Diary of Anne Frank in our room- all scrambling silently over ourselves and flinching when we make the slightest noise. You have no idea how loud your sheets rustle when you roll over, really. Whee!!!!

Wow! That thing does take a pretty picture.

Curious, though: why the Nikon. You know all the cool kids are using Canons, right? ;)

Oh, and please do substitute a question mark for the inappropriately placed full stop above. If only in your mind.

Actually, I considered the Rebel, and did a little research, and basically found them neck-and-neck on everything I cared about- if the equally divided chat boards and user reveiws mean anything. Then I went to the store and played w/ both. The one thing i liked better on Nikon was this nifty guide mode and question mark button that walks you thru anything you don't understand- perfect for beginners like m'self. Plus I figured, since all the cool kids have Canons- I'd like to see the other side of the coin. And it was 24 bucks cheaper! :) So far, so good. Oh, and I think you know by now that punctuation means nothing to me. So full stop away, I get yer meaning! :P

"And it was 24 bucks cheaper! :)"

Good answer!

Nothing like 3:00am binkie woes to bring two otherwise very reasonable and loving people to the brink of divorce. :D

P.S. I'm jealous of your fancy-cam.
