Thanks for all your birthday wishes for Liam. He still on a birthday high. Especially since his camera arrived in the post yesterday.

He got up one morning about a month ago and decided that I needed to teach him how to use my camera.

And so I obliged, showed him how to be very careful with it, always put the strap around his neck, which buttons to press, he learnt how to check the photos he'd taken, how to use the zoom, how to re-charge the batteries and put them back in the camera.

I thought the novelty might wear off after a few days, but no.

He was very careful with my camera, but it did make me a bit nervous.

So I thought I would check if I could get him a little second-hand digital camera for his birthday.

And yes, I found cheap little second-hand cameras in abundance on Trade Me. I managed to get a very tidy little Nikon point-and-shoot for only $20.

He has probably taken more than fifty photos since it arrived yesterday afternoon, it hasn't left his side, in fact I am having photos taken of me while I write this.

I now need to teach him how to have a critical eye and assess the photos he's taken or we will be having storage issues soon :)

And as a side note, sorry I've been so absent here of late. The little people have a nasty nasty cough that has been going on and on. It is looking rather a lot like whooping cough. We have all had quite enough, so I've been doing a lot of research and I now have them on an intensive regime of remedies and therapies :) that hopefully will do the trick.

I love looking at photos that kids take. The viewpoint always shocks me, despite the fact that I spend half of my day literally on the floor with the kids. :)
PS. I hope your kids get better soon.
