Avery is four months old!

Now that she’s a bit older I’m having fun dressing her like a little human. (Hopefully she’s not wearing pearls and carrying a handbag by her 12-month photo.)

I didn’t think I would go the bow/headband route, but I’m ok with these. (I might also be overcompensating for people assuming she’s a boy – gah, even dressed in pink!) But really, we kinda love the hats more. She definitely has Kyle’s blue eyes but the jury is still out on hair color. The little she has is brown, but sometimes we see hints of auburn. Red hair is super recessive in my family (yep, I’m the genetic anomaly) so we’ll just have to wait and see.

Avery continues to be a happy and wriggly baby. Her little personality is starting to come through and we’re constantly surprised by how much she’s learned in the past month. And we’re so grateful that we get to see that development. Between raising our daughter and running our business, there is a lot of work in our lives right now. But it’s the kind of chest-swelling work that nudges us out of bed early in the morning and keeps us going late into the hopefully-the-baby-is-sleeping night.

Finally, question time. Like most new parents with a camera within reach at all times, we’ve taken SO MANY pictures of this little one. Too many. (Yes, it’s possible.) I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately and thought you guys might have some advice. At the rate we’re going, we’ll have thousands and thousands of photos of Avery by the time she leaves for college. I worry that there will be so many that none will be special. So, parents (or anyone that’s particularly savvy in this area) – what do you do? How do limit the photos you take and keep them organized? Do you save your favorites and print them? (What a concept!) So far, I try to limit the photos on my iPhone to 1,000 (of which about 800 were taken in the last four months). This has actually taken much effort. The great thing about digital photography of course is that you can easily take 20 photos to get that one good shot and so I also try to quickly delete the duds before I grow too attached. Other than that – I’m not sure. The easiest solution is just to dump everything in iPhoto because hey, space is cheap! But what happens when Avery calls me up in 20 years asking for some cute baby photos? We try to live simply and I think this applies to digital content too. Opinions?
