Into the breach once more...

Cailyn originally had a tentative birth date of June 13. June 15th if we went by her ultrasound checks. We were expecting her to be early since we kept hearing that later children often arrive earlier than the first....

Crafty

Transcribing a conversation Erin had with Devon a few days ago (as told to me by Erin): Devon: I have something stuck between my teeth. Erin: Oh? Where is it? Let me see... Devon: Something's stuck in there, you need...

Backpackin'

Devon received a backpack for his first birthday from his aunt and we didn't break it out until recently. As is the case with most toddlers, they love new things and this backpack was no exception. We loaded it up...

Cool

The day I took these photos was notable because it was the first time Devon actually decided it was ok to wear my sunglasses for longer than 2 seconds. Actually it was the first time he let me seat...

Devon's First Easter Egg Hunt

This past weekend we took Devon to his first Easter egg hunt at Hamilton Park. It was an interesting day for all of us as Erin and I discovered that we should not tell him beforehand what we would...

Light Posting

Work's been busy and will remain so till the end of the year so posting will probably be light for the remainder of the year. Well, not that it was that frequent to begin with. Anyway, just thought I'd throw...

Halloween Loot

Just a few shots of the aftermath of Devon's first trick-or-treating expedition. While taking him around, we would tell him to take only one piece of candy per house which he actually abided by surprisingly enough. But we weren't...

Itsy-Bitsy Spider...

It was remarkably easier this year to get Devon into his Halloween costume than last. He didn't even complain about the cap even though it was too small for him so Erin had to tie it down around his...

New PJs

Devon, many years in the future, when we're sharing photos of your youth with your bride-to-be, just know that your Dad had absolutely nothing to do with this. You have your Mom to thank 100%. ;-)...

Gorgeous Day for an Outing

We were originally scheduled to visit Sesame Place this Saturday but the remnants of Tropical Storm Hanna squelched that plan by making Saturday incredibly humid from morning til about mid-afternoon and then dumping like half a foot of rain...

Few Quick 50mm Shots

As I had mentioned in this previous entry, Nikon's 50mm f/1.4D lens was surprisingly small. Smaller than Canon's 50mm f/1.4 which is pretty small to begin with. Plopping this on the D700 after the hefty 24-70mm f/2.8 makes it...

The Amazing Orange Tabby

We first came across this tabby late yesterday afternoon while riding around the neighborhood. Devon followed it around for some time and wanted to touch it but we wouldn't let him because we figured it was a wild/stray. But...

Portrait

Hand-holding any lens > 100mm is always a challenge and the AI Focus mode on the 5D seems to be pretty unreliable and/or slow (or most likely I just need more practice) but every now and then you hit...

Visiting Pennsylvania

Took a few days off last week to take Devon and his cousin on a trip to Amish & Hershey country. Kids had a blast, adults were exhausted. ;-) Gazing out the window of the train at the Strasburg Railroad....

Making a Run For It

Dev's been a bit under the weather this past week, coming down with a fever and then an odd rash (leading us to believe it might be roseola) which made him rather clingy and ornery. But then I process...

My Muse

Yeah yeah I'm still waaaay behind on Devon's gallery but I just wanted to put these few up right now. =) Whenever he does anything that he's proud of, he'll clap for himself. It's funny and cute as hell but...

A New 50mm

So earlier this year Sigma announced their new 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM lens which works on both crop and full-frame bodies. Earlier this month, they started shipping and after seeing some initial reviews I decided to pick one...

All Your Bases Are Belong to Nikon

Possibly one of the worst-kept secrets ever in recent photography history, the Nikon D700 was announced a few days ago for release amazingly, at the end of July. Now this particular camera was expected as everyone figured Nikon would...

The Fabled Canon 135

Hmm... ok I think I can see what the hoopla's all about. ;-)...

Lensbabied

Bit the bullet and picked up a used Lensbaby 3G and macro kit to play around with. Everything's manual so it'll take some time to get used to. And it'll probably be doubly tough to get shots of Devon...

Devon's First Umbrella

Typically there are two schools of thought when it comes to umbrellas1.    1. Buy the cheapest ones possible. When it inevitably breaks, just buy another one.    2. Search for the most wind-resistant umbrella possible, cost be damned. One of our...

Fun with Stickers

Doing his best mummy impersonation. I approve of Mommy's attempt to keep me busy....

Back on Two Wheels...

So about a month ago, I decided to take Erin's suggestion that we get bikes seriously and we started looking. She had been saying she wanted to take bike rides with Devon when the weather got better since this past...

Devon's First Bike Ride

Despite the cloudy and chilly weather, we took our new bikes along with Devon's new bike seat out for a test run around the neighborhood. As expected, Devon kicked up a massive fuss when we were putting his helmet...

It's Voting Season!

For those of you who I haven't contacted directly already... =) To practice for the presidential elections later this fall, you can cut yer teeth on this "Battle of the Babies" contest: http://z100.elvisduran.com/pages/contest/babybattle/?article=3618017 And vote for "Devon C." =)...

On the Move

Devon achieved another "first" during yesterday's unseasonably warm weather. He went out for a walk with us sans stroller. I wish Erin had brought the TX1 so we could record him toddling around cause it's just insanely cute. I...

Dream Big

One Step at a Time

Devon received this Wheely Bug as a Christmas gift but at the time he had no clue what to do with it and pretty much ignored it. A month or so ago he got around to flipping it over...

Devon In Another Box

He didn't mind when I put him in, but getting out was a different matter......

It's All About the Wheels

In his currently short life, Devon likes the following: Mommy, wheels, balls, and cars. While at Toys 'R Us, he wasn't interested in the bikes and toy cars because he could get around faster, he just wanted to touch...

All Things Fishy...

It's going to be fun using this lens. Even though the focusing motor's a little loud without USM. And gotta keep that exposed bulbous element away from curious hands....

Devon Does Bad Things...

When you see this face, you know he's up to something... Then he tries to pretend that nothing's going to happen... But of course he can't help himself......

Devon-in-the-Box

We brought this back from Taiwan to use as a toy box. One day Erin decided to dump him in it and now he'll climb in a few times a day. Even while his toys are in it. Only...

Fleeing the Scene of the Crime

Gee, I wonder who made this mess....

Safe and Sound

As anyone with kids will know, taking them on a plane trip can be quite the experience. Well, we figured if we were going to do it, we might as well do it big so Devon's first plane trip...

Lens Cap Teether

While Devon's bottom two teeth have already grown out, his top two are just coming in. So even at this age he still considers his mouth his primary exploratory sensory organ. While at Grandma's today he managed to get...

Like father...

I recently discovered another use for my Sony PSP when hanging out with Devon on the bed. He was having a grand ol' time rolling around until I put the PSP down in front of him and slightly within...

Devon's New Stroller

Erin wanted to get out of the house so we headed into the city to get haircuts. Originally the plan was to just take Devon in his car seat/stroller combo but after thinking seriously about that for the past...

Happy Faces...

The following sequence was taken with Devon seated in my mom's lap. He was having a grand old time while my mom was fussing over him but then stopped smiling when it was time to take actual photos where my...

Early morning conversation

This is the type of exchanges one has when a baby has kept you up for most of the night. The following occurred at around 6am this morning: Me: (woken up for unknown reason) Blrgh... Erin: Hey, can you move...

Grade School Math

I guess it could've been worse. ;-p...

When all is well...

Devon's a real bundle of joy. I would like to think for the most part he's a pretty happy kid. Baby requirements are generally pretty simple. The only problem of course is when one or more of these requirements...

Our Lil' Ninja...

Felix & Maria's new line of baby clothes is starting to get some press! Rock on!...

Two Months Old...

Devon turned two months old this past Monday. He's recently taken to licking at his right mitten for unknown reasons. Not sure if it's a sign of hunger cause he usually has other signs for that. I'm hoping it's...

Fuzzy Puppy

Early this morning Erin had to go get her biometrics taken with the Department of Homeland Security so we got Devon all suited up for the outdoors. He wasn't particularly happy about that since this was his prime sleep...

Hmm... what looks different...

Something seems amiss... ;-)...

It's good to be the baby...

When you grow up lil' guy, you're gonna have to pay good money for this type of treatment. Anyway, if there's one silver lining to the dark cloud that is having a newborn that sleeps during the day and...

Newborn Senses...

Every so often while watching Devon do his thing, I keep being reminded of something I heard awhile ago about babies and children being more sensitive to the paranormal. After observing Devon for awhile now I can certainly understand...

Props to all the women in the world...

Erin decided to be induced if she missed her due date of 12/8. During the last few weeks of her pregnancy our doc had us go for two more ultrasounds because based on her fundal measurements, the baby seemed...
