Tina is really starting to reactively smile. It's still rare enough that I feel the need to capture photographic evidence of the smiles, but yesterday I was able to get some by tickling her tummy. Charlotte is still a bit distant and not all that into me though.
We're starting to get more sleep. A couple of nights ago, Charlotte slept 9 straight hours and only Tina was up for feedings. It looks like she's doing the same now (it's 9am and she's still asleep at the moment). Tina slept about 7 of those same hours last night so K and I both got a little over 6 solid hours of sleep.
And Charlotte demonstrated a new trick during tummy time, 3 roll overs in a row! This is roll over number 3.
One thing I've learned - the best camera is the one you'll reach for. I have some really nice cameras in the house, but they are rarely within reach, so I'm getting a lot of shots on my cell phone. Sure, they aren't the best pictures, but a crappy picture you take is better than the excellent picture you don't!
I've also downloaded the app "fast burst". It takes a ton of pictures really quickly so I can go back and find the ones that look good and throw out the rest. It's really good for capturing those fleeting moments of smile. Here's a series of pictures I took, and one of them is a real keeper (obviously I kept all of them anyway).
But a good camera has its uses. I decided to do a bit of a photo shoot with a nice camera to try to get a picture for printing and sharing. Here's the best pic I've taken of the girls to date.
And of course, they can't all be winners.
So that's my big tip of the day. Take a ton of pictures, learn how to use the burst mode on your camera or download an app so you can do burst on your cell phone. You can throw out the crap and just keep that one gold picture, but the odds of taking that golden picture when you take individual photos at a time are kind of slim.
