My grandkids don't keep the binky in as new babies either...it really takes them a couple of months to get the hang of them. However, my daughter & I were adamant on making them take it as it was the only thing that soothed them. I shove it in & hold it there until they take hold of it & hold it in place until they are asleep. Ella is still very needy with hers; Tristan had his just taken away before he was 2 1/2. Easier to get rid of than the thumb.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

Well, we were living with my MIL at the time. Being a new mother, I didn't know any better. She was the only guide I had. Also, what she says goes. She was of the belief that we were living in her house, we had to go by what she said, regardless if I was an adult, and they were my children!
Craig didn't really go against her at that time. I probably should've had a little more backbone, but I'm the kinda person that doesn't like to upset the apple cart.(If you know what I mean)
So, the bottle was taken away from my daughter when she was a year old, as a result she sucked her thumb! And, my MIL didn't like pacifiers! I tried it the one time with my son, when she wasn't around:-) It wasn't until we moved to Louisiana that I was able to escape her control.

Lynn, I lived in a car with a baby many years ago......too stubborn/stupid to ask for help or to move back home. I had about 5 rocky years without a pot to pee in but I wouldn't trade those horrible years for anything. They made me strong, helped me learn that I could survive, drove me through nursing school & strengthened my determination. It also helped me allow my children to do the same.

So.... today I sold my 5D3 and the 5D4 arrived. The instruction booklet is 3 times thicker than the one for the 3 so I have a lot of reading to do. That said, I put my fave settings into the camera, took about 8 pictures and guess what? I cannot open them in Photoshop because it doesn't support my camera yet; Adobe said it could take 90 days to add the new camera into the support system! What?!?! They should be ready to go as soon as the camera is released as they have 3 months warning that it is coming out.


Booooo!

Congrats on the new camera Maureen. Have you tried using DPP? It's a pretty good program these days.

Mark, I did download Dpp to open the photos. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I did not need to edit any of them!! All I did was crop them. Here are the first 2 shots I took of my dog, Jack. No flash, just a window behind me.

Lynn, I saved all year since I figured it would come out this month. I photographed a whole pre-school last spring & socked the $$ away towards the camera. :-D

So I had a few minutes to play with the camera with the 135/f2 lens this early evening. This shot is at f/2.0 taken in early evening light. Cropped and a bit of contrast added, no sharpening or anything else as I don't have my beloved Camera RAW available yet. i called Adobe yesterday & she told me 60-90 days before the next update would come out.

I just got my 5DIV off the delivery truck yesterday, too. It was waiting for me when I got home from lunch with friends. It was pretty light in the box, so I was surprised to see the camera itself is beefy, very much a 5D series with so many features, the manual is rather thick. I may have to do tutorial on line. The 24-70 II I got two weeks ago is very nice. I like it much better than my old 24-70, which I've had for many years and feels a little used. The new lens focuses super fast and can keep up with the new camera. The shutter on the 5D2 was clunky. It didn't have the sexy sound the 7D2 has. Then the 5DIV's shutter sounds completely different. I think the new mechanism for the mirror makes the sound different and interesting, not what I expected. The 7D2's shutter is very much a familiar sound, but I will get used to it. Turned off the beeping immediately. Pet peeve. I just have to figure out how to store JPEG on one disk and RAW on the other. Any help would be good.

I don't have a dog, but I took some pictures of my yard with my 17-40 and the images looked good. I will test it tonight. Hubby having his party tonight with friends. Should be fun.

Congrats on the camera, Mo. I knew you'd get one, too. I just had to wait for mine, but I get $200 from Amazon and now fighting with Canon to get $200 back for the rebates they are putting on now.

My children are the reason, but it's the passion that drives me to get the perfect image of everything.

Congrats on the new 5D4 Suzie. The manual is rather lengthy but the section that covers card selection starts on page 166.

We went to the fair with Tristan yesterday & I elected to take my older camera because fairs are pretty dirty. Here I have been using the new body & learning some of the new options. I wish I could afford the new 24-70 lens, Suzie but medical costs have eaten into the budget. Damn Obamacare is killing me.
