A Pictorial Journey Through My Daughter's Eyes

I've found that giving your digital camera to your three year old daughter is a good thing. 1. It doesn't cost you anything to develop the pictures and believe me, a three year old can take a lot of pictures in a short space of time. 2. It keeps a bored three years old on a rainy day occupied. 3. I find it very interesting to sort through the resulting pictures and see what things my daughter finds interesting enough to snap its picture. Besides the hundreds of pictures of myself and my wife, which tells me we must be good parents in our daughter's eyes, it seems as if she spends much of her time still looking down.

And she has a thing for bushy mustache men found on the Discovery channel. I hope she grows out of that one.

And is it just me or does she have your feet? :-)

What a great idea, it is interesting how she is often looking down.

I'm amazed at the common thread of 'tooling' that stands out ... even the bushy mustache man comes from 'mythbusters' which is about mechanics. She is definitely a future 'fix-it' lady!

Murf - It's actually a Roku player with our Netflix account. I don't have cable.

Murf - She has her mom's feet unfortunately.

Sage - She certainly likes it.

Eutychus2 - I hadn't caught the 'tooling' thread between the pictures.

Haha. I was about to ask what the heck that was on TV. Good idea for a post. I think it could become a monthly feature or something.

That's a really good idea Ed, just as the iTouch apps for kids were (Evan loves the Grover game). Little Abbey has the cutest feet. Your comment about her always looks down made me laugh. Now I can't wait to give Evan my bulky (aka old) digicam and see what he comes up with.

Abby snapped a photo the other day, and it took me a minute to realize that the slope of the hill was going the wrong direction. :)

What a great idea. To do that over time sounds really neat, sort of like journaling. Kids...

I often wondered what those little eyes see. It's been such a long time that our own eyes where that innocent.

Cheers.

Bone - I think I already have another similar post scheduled so stay tuned.

Geri - My daughter loves the iTouch and can now officially use it better than I can. One of her favorites is looking at pictures and videos of herself as a baby.

Ron - Back in the days of slides, I would get them backwards now and then and it always through me for a loop.

Beau - Although the old camera is now residing in the urban jungle, I may let her take out the new one for a spin under the right circumstances, i.e., she is safely standing on the lawn and not the driveway.

R. Sherman - Amen to that. I just find it terribly fascinating about what she finds important.

I'm loving the foot photos. She's my kinda girl :)
