A Woman in her Thirties is Slightly Excessive

I take lots of pictures.  LOTS.  Let's put it this way:  for a couple of years, I was trying to keep it so I had no more than 1000 photos on my iPhone.  I gave up on that after Aaron was born.  I'm sure I'm not the only woman in her thirties who is a bit cray-cray when it comes to picture-taking, so don't even pretend that you don't know what I'm talking about.

What can I say?  My kids are cute.  And don't even get me started on the amazingness that is Instagram.  

Last night, after the going-to-bed craziness was complete, I took some time while watching X-Factor (seriously-- how lame is that show now?!  Britney-- I expected more from you!) to go through my pictures.  I realized, while flipping through my photos over the last couple of weeks, that the picture taking has gotten out of hand.  

How do I know this?  Here is a complete collection of pictures from Anna's haircut a couple weeks ago.  I'm thinking about making it into a flip-book, that's how many pictures there are.  

 Clearly pleased.

 Thank goodness for the suckers...

The finished product.

Keep in mind this was not Anna's first haircut.  It wasn't even her SECOND haircut.  A woman in her thirties is all about documenting life, but I think I might be going a bit overboard here.  I found this particular collection so excessive that I almost deleted all 1068 pictures currently on my phone.  


Because then I watched this video again and I thought, sigh.  Excessive picture-taking is worth it.  Sometimes a woman in her thirties captures pure awesomeness:


  1. You can NEVER take enough pictures. EVER. NEVER. EVER.

  2. What Mrs. Kirbyface said. That's how you get the ten good taking 10,000 outtakes. You should see my hard drive...

    That alphabet video makes me smile every single time!

  3. I think there is some sort of 7 step program out there for people like you? Insta-anons... or something along those line (wink).

    It *is* pretty hard to just take a few shots when they are so adorable!

  4. Why wouldn't you go picture crazy with those little faces?!?! And you really can't have too many.

  5. Cracking UP at all those haircut pictures. I am so OCD I delete the imperfect ones almost immediately. That video is too much, though. She is a genius!
