    Very cute, Thee.

    If it looks like she's changing everyday, it's only because SHE IS!

    When my daughter was that age, it cost about .45 in film and developing every time I snapped the shutter. Now with digital, it's nearly free, so take lots and lots of pictures. Then share them here with us!

    As for film, I've heard that it keeps best before exposure but after that it should be kept in a cool dark place with moderate humidity. I've found a roll or two of that antique stuff in a box that was stored in a closet. Had it developed and found I had taken it 6-8 years earlier. The prints weren't the best, but not because of the film. I didn't know about composition and stuff back then.

    As I see it you need to do three things.

    One, take tons of digital pictures of her as she grows up of her doing everything. Even things as mundane as taking on the phone or engaged in a TV show. Every now and then I take a little time to look at photos I've taken years ago. I know, it's something women do but I enjoy it.

    Two, be sure to back them up on a regular basis. You don't want a massive collection of your best shots being wiped out on a bad drive.

    Three, share them with us!

    Some women saw their dads very infrequently growing up but cherished every moment with them. Their dads didn't dump tons of money on them trying to out do their moms. They just spent quality time together. As Willow gets older, even getting to help you wash dinner dishes can be a very fond memory for her.

    I'm not sure what your situation is, but here's hoping you get more Willow time. Maybe you can score more time by offering her mom CDs with all the photos you take when Willow's with you? She's a real cutie. :)

    What thoughtful advice! I am in full agreement about how wonderful digital cameras are: you can guiltlessly take hundreds and hundred of photos, even of the most mundane things. :)

    Having any luck through the courts? It's expensive and can be pretty draining, but they keep the kids best interests in mind and those are seeing BOTH parents as often as possible.

    Not to hi-jack or anything, but I just recently went through a custody battle thing in court with the ex and actually beat her! Finally! She's going to have to abide by the court order starting on the first of July! Can't have it her way anymore and yep, she's pretty dang ticked off, but there's really nothing she can do about it. :)

    I gotta admit that at one point, things got so frustrating that I was that close to giving up legal custody of him over to her. Glad I had the patience to fight all the way through this. Draining indeed but well worth it!

    Don't you go letting her control custody/visitations, Mat. That's your child just as much as it is hers!!

    Good to hear, Jason. Congratulations on all that hard work paying off.

    >That's your child just as much as it is hers!!

    They don't seem to be able to grasp that concept though, do they?

    Sad, but it's true.

    That's why I give my dad so much credit. he fought the system here in Texas back in 1981 to get custody of me and my brother. The hoops he had to jump through were huge, but he managed it. Often times the moms are in the wrong and the courts just don't see it.

    Congrats on the custody, Jason. I've been the kid on the other end, so just be careful not to let it trickle back to your son. it's always best to take the high road and let him figure out his mother for himself. He will eventually without you having to say a word. (Worked for my dad!)

    He already did. I put him through tutoring to help improve his grades and counsellings for his attitude and self esteem. He needed to learn that he has a voice, and the right to say certain things to his mum, especially when it comes to issues between households. He understand better now that he has right to say things like "I'm not going to tell dad anything, please tell him yourself".

    I hated having her put him in the middle of our fights. But enough about that, this is Matts thread.

    Sorry Mat, didn't mean to hi-jack and drivel off into something about my family. Just wanted you to know that there's hope.

    >Often times the moms are in the wrong and the courts just don't see it.

    And that is why before I went through all of this, I had an attitude like "Why bother? The ***** is going to win and get her way anyhow. The courts always favor the mom" and all that. That's not good, bro.

    that could be hell but that's a very wonderful thing you did! you should be proud!
