Bundle Has Arrived!

Just a quick update that our new baby girl Erin arrived on Apr. 11th at a whopping 8 lbs, 14 oz. by c-section. I'm still recovering but taking a much needed break so thought I would quickly update everyone. Erin is healthy and happy and pretty much just sleeps and eats (at least for now!)

Now how in the heck do I post a picture...

Re: Bundle Has Arrived!

congratulations! I remember ours like it just happened 15 months ago!

Open a free account at www.photobucket.com Once you have that, you can upload your photos. Once you upload, you'll see the photos in your 'album'. Below each photo is three things you can cut and paste. Cut and paste the one that starts with "". When someone views the thread, the photo will be displayed from photobucket.

There are other free photo services, but I've only used this one.

Congrats again!!!

Re: Bundle Has Arrived!

Does she even need to go through the trouble of using photobucket?

Can't she just click on "Additional Options" at the bottom of the posting screen and attach a photo?

Congrats on the baby. THAT'S what life is all about. You have become an instant millionaire!

Only if the photo is 64k or less. Most modern digital cams are going to produce photos a LOT larger than that. The process of reducing a photo in size for most people is considerably more complex than uploading it to a postable photo service.

Congrats, and enjoy each day with your Little_Calgary_Girl!

My little girl turned 30 last month--I don't know how those years went by so fast.
