Pictures of the First Born Versus the Rest


I had heard this before, but did not want to believe it was true.  

Parents take more pictures of their first born child than of the rest of their children.

There are a thousand reasons why this is true in most cases.  Unfortunately in our house it is true too.  Big D and I looked back at pictures of T Bear when he was 10 months old and we had a bazillion pictures of him.  The motherly guilt set in and I started taking a ton of pictures of Baby Cub in the last couple of days. (The hard part is not getting T Bear in the shot too - he wants to be in all the pictures!)

Isn't he cute?

Now you are probably thinking... Hey! Miss T is the oldest so there are probably way more pictures of her than me.  That may be true.  But whatever you do, do not call mom and remind her of this.  It will trigger extreme motherly guilt.  Trust me, you will understand someday.  But I do remember what a cute baby you were!

PS. And yes, Baby Cub is naked a lot at our house.  It is hard to fit him into clothes - did you see those adorable rolls?


  1. Guilty as charged. Not only did we not take as many pictures of everyone else but now I can't find any of them. The GUILT is suffocating! Just remember I loved you then and I love you now. Each day was an adventure and certainly worthy of a taking a picture but I was too busy living in the moment. What wonderful moments they were!!

  2. HAHA! Oh wow, these pictures are adorable. And Mom, don't feel guilty one bit. I loved all of the moments too!

  3. Same with our two boys. I LOVE Carson's smile!
