While not exactly what you're looking for, 

	o select date view
	o filter on name-of-kid

should give you pictures of our kid(s) grouped
by month.

Only problem (IMHO) is that 'empty' folders
listed too.  This makes date view quite
painful for rare tags.

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
