My New Toy

Does this mean my crafting might suffer? Maybe.  But I think it's more like - another creative outlet can only help.  Isn't that how it works?? ;)

Going Manual

The book is called Say No to Auto! and you can buy your own copy here

I have been a bit terrified of switching to the manual mode on my camera because I don't know what I am doing. I do know that I just have the "kit" lens, and I still have a lot to learn, but today was my first day. I said No to auto.  I just did what Kristen suggests. I took a couple of pictures and didn't worry what they looked like, but rather just played with my settings.  Here are some of the pictures.  We had a bit of a rough potty training day, so we stayed indoors near the window instead of finding open shade outside.

These are two straight out of camera from AUTO:

And here are two straight out of camera on MANUAL:

These reflect more of a true coloring of what she was looking like.  I still have lots to learn, but it was fun experimenting today.

Do you own a Nuby Breast Pump?

Okay, so I recently purchased a Nuby Natural Touch Rhythm Breast Pump.  Wouldn't it be my luck that during the last couple of weeks of pregnancy baby brain, I lost the instructions manual?

If anyone has this breast pump, can I please get a copy of the instructions manual?

Thanks friends!
