Photo Meme

These photo memes can be so much fun and now I've been tagged by Leah at South Breeze Farm to do one.

This one is about the sixth picture in the sixth folder. Lemme see, ah yes...that folder will work for me and the topic is the first grandson...then 11 months old and soon to be three years old. The date was December 2, 2006.

So this is the sixth picture as he's being removed from his jacket...

But you didn't think that I could post only that one, did you? I mean the camera/s have been smoking ever since that child's birthdate nearly three years ago. This nonni has hundreds of pictures and if you're a grandmother, too, you are nodding right now. I took 29 pics that day and here is the 29th one...I was getting better at it by then...

Here's a little organizing tip from a photographer that may help some with maintaining photo files. He suggested to name files according to the date first. For example, this one is labeled 2006-12-02 with the year first, the month, then the date. From there you can go on to name it more specifically, but this way all files will come up in a logical progression of order. Now I see that I must get 2006, 2007, and 2008 copied to disks. Ackkkk!!!

I'm supposed to tag six bloggers, but you may play along if you wish. Just let me know so that I can visit and see what you discovered.

Have a happy Saturday and a relaxing weekend!


  1. What a cutie. I was shocked when I saw how many photos I've taken in just four years since our grandson was born. Hurray for digital cameras!!!

  2. What a little darling! I too have hundreds upon hundreds of photos of my little grand too! I am sure the poor dear thinks he is celebrity and I am a stalking paparazzo! Have a sweet Saturday Vee.

  3. Grin....sweet pic...good tips. I am in the process of deleting TOO many shots downloaded. Have a great day AND weekend Vee...hide in that little Haven away from the winter weather.

  4. Good idea about putting the year first - I will do that.
    Your grandson is adorable. Today is my youngest grandson is three!

  5. One can never have too many grandbaby pic's! We look forward to seeing his 'birthday #3' pic's soon. I think Ryder would get along just fine with your grandson.

  6. Your grandson is adorable. Makes me want one. I need to stay away from posts like this. hehe.

    I am sending you a picture of David in his new shirt...

    xo Terri

  7. He is ever so adorable! What a proud grandmother you must be. I fear that my photography will one day overtaken my computer as I take pictures of everything my puppy does, God help us when we have children. I too am a professinal photographer who catologs by date. It is just so much easier to find what you are looking for.

  8. I am so pleased to visit you! Your place is truly a haven and a comforting place to "settle in" and enjoy! I'll be back and so glad to have met you on my blog space as well! Blessings to you!

  9. I'd be taking a ton of pics with that cutie pie. My goodness, he is so adorable. I love when you post pics of him. He is getting so big,,,sigh..they grow up so fast...

  10. Your grandson is just adorable! You have been tagged. Come see.

  11. Precious! Isn't it amazing how quickly they grow :). Thanks for the organizing tips, mine are such a mess, perhaps one day....perhaps :)

    A wonderful evening to you Vee :)

    Don't give up on your poinsettia!

  12. From one with some really serious computer woes... GET THOSE PHOTOS ON DISKS NOW if you don't have them backed up somewhere else. Those are precious pictures with precious memories attached I am sure. Oh such a cutie!


  13. He's adorable Vee! I wish I lived nearer to my grandson as I know I'd have a lot more photos of him in my files right now. For some reason his parents think things like sleep and food and showers, etc, take more precedence than taking constant photos of every baby movement and

    Hugs, Pat

  14. This little guy is such a cutie. You must be having so much fun creating these.
