Gotcha Day!

Today, was our "Gotcha Day."

Not to steal thunder away from all of those adoptive families.

I mean,

My 'baby' is not human.

And, in fact, is not alive.

But OH stinkin BOY, am I excited, because this baby:

Is mine!

Or, you know, "ours," with us being married and all.

But who I am I trying to fool?

It's mine.

I called dibbs.

And Ian doesn't really care, haha!

Lots of reading and fiddling, practicing and researching!

Speaking of research, I agonized over the Canon T1i and the Canon xsi, with the xsi being a step below the t1i but also being less expensive.

In the end, we chose the T1i so that it could take me further (since we'll be moving overseas,) and because of the live video option.

Now for research on a camera bag!
