276-278/366: Fun With Editing

Last in a series of themed collections of pictures. These ones are showcasing my rudimentary GIMP skills, pasting together multiple pictures into composites.

276/366: Sky-Bison for Scale

One of the earliest happenings in the three-week period I'm dumping photos from was SteelyKid getting strep throat again. She spent a Friday at home, and I took the opportunity to introduce her to Avatar: The Last Airbender on DVD. They're now a few episodes into the third season, so that was a big hit.

This reignited an interest in our stuffed Appa toy, which I used to use for scale in baby-blogging photos, which in turn led to taking some new Appa-for-scale pictures:

Some Appa-for-scale comparisons. Some Appa-for-scale comparisons.

They've grown just a little...

This also led to The Pip demanding a stuffed Appa of his very own, which turns out to be slightly smaller. That made a great excuse for a physics blogging post at Forbes, though...

277/366: Scootering Pip

As mentioned in previous photo dump posts, I took the kids down to my parents' for Memorial Day weekend, where there was a lot of scooter-riding. For some reason, this involved stringing Bodie's leash across the gap between the kitchen table and the stove, but that couldn't stop The Pip.

278/366: Taekwondo Faces

SteelyKid thinking and waiting. SteelyKid thinking and waiting.

I couldn't decide which of these photos of SteelyKid waiting with her team at the taekwondo tournament I liked best, so I just stuck them all together. You can see that she noticed me with the camera between the second and third...

And that, I believe, catches us up to today.

I've been really bad about documenting The Pip's growth here. The annoying thing is, I've actually taken pictures of him over the last couple of weeks, but I've been too busy to edit and post them. If there's one thing transcontinental flights are good for, though, it's providing you with time to…
The Pip turned one month old yesterday, so to celebrate, here's a picture of the whole family: OK, it's not a photograph, but look! SteelyKid drew that all by herself! (The labels on the drawing were done by one of her preschool teachers; the printed text was added by me when I obscured the given…
Winter is coming, and SteelyKid is getting ready. Here, we see her modeling the latest in baby headgear (handed down from a friend): It's very stylish. I'm not convinced that hugging Appa will take the place of a coat, though... A slightly better Appa-for-scale picture is below the fold: This…
SteelyKid was in an exceptionally happy mood the other night, and so I not only got the silly face shot from the previous post, but also this more traditional Toddler Blogging picture, with Appa, no less: All together now: Awwwwwww.... Appa, you may or may not recall, has served as our standard…

Loved the Appa photos when they were little. These are fantastic! What do the kids think of the comparison pics?

Both kids were duly impressed to see how small they used to be. SteelyKid got a big kick out of the doctored photos with different-sized Appas, but The Pip didn't really understand the point.
