When my first son was born, we took pictures, flash on and off at the hospital with a disposable camera because that's all we could afford at the time. All the pictures unfortunately came back all black. Now, 8 years later pregnant again with a better man(due any day, today's my due date) I have a better camera, digital, batteries works good, I'm packing it in my hospital bag. My point is, I feel I'm not being fair if I have pictures taken with my new son when I have none from my first. With my first we didn't get to take pictures of him til he was a week old at home this time with a polaroid camera. Please no harsh comments, it was the best we could, spend $60 for a polaroid than $200-400 for a digital camera. And no we didn't have a cel phone with a camera. I just feel like I'm leaving out my 8 year old, and I know he's too young to understand or ask now, (he's autistic by the way). I don't know how much a non autistic 8 year old would ask questions as far as 'why aren't there pictures of me in the hospital or on birth announcement cards?'
