Big Phish

I interrupt my normal weekend posting for this important announcement: Dax is certifiably a water-baby. We've tried a few things to help him stay afloat, but he took to the arm floaties better than anything. I can now officially throw him in the water and know that he'll be OK. Of course that's not what I do every time, I don't have to, he runs to go down the steps faster than I can get the gate closed behind us. But sometimes he still needs encouragement, as you'll see in the video.

Courtesy Laugh

Nothing really new or exciting going on around here. We were a little bummed that NASA decided to land the space shuttle in CA, because we hear that the two sonic booms it makes as it re-enters the atmosphere sound like shotgun blasts in your living room. Maybe we'll get that pleasant treat next time. This video is of Dax when he figured out how to fake laugh, he only really did it that one day, I haven't seen him do it since, maye he saw this video and realized how ugly he looks when he does it. The picture, where he is again looking very attractive, is climbing a fence at the Epcot Center.

On the way to Disney World

In contrast to last weeks posting, I figured I would show what Dax is like on the way to Disney World. Don't get too excited by the video appearing to be upright, it doesn't last, but don't worry, Jen now knows not to hold the camera that way. And just in case you are curious, the song in the background is: "Brand New Key" by Melanie, great little tune, you can tell that Dax likes it. The picture is of us on the Carousel at the Magic Kingdom.

Take 2

See what I mean, computers are as much of a pain as a help. Obviously I will have to start proof reading my posts. I meant to say "the video is very loud", and apparently this laptop requires a very deliberate push on the space bar to get it to work.

Disney World Aftermath

You know, computers and technology end up takingas much time as they claim to help save. I spent a few hours tryingtofigure out how to rotate an AVI video file. I surfed the web. I downloaded software and followed instructions. Nothing.So, I'm sorry if you get a kink in your neck trying to watch this video, but I hope it is worth it. The video isn't actually all that great, it's pretty load because we are in the car, and kind of boring, but that is the point. Dax is usually all about showing off for the camera, but he justcan't find the energy after a day at Disney World. After viewing the video, take a look at the picture, it was taken about 30 seconds after Jen stopped filming, poor tike.

Sorry it has been so lang since I last posted anything, but this video should make it all worth it. It's Dax jsut rockin' out in his stroller, listening to an MP3 player. This video made us realize that it's even funnier to watch him dance when only he can hear the music. I think he likes it a lot more than having to listen to only one side of the conversation between his Mom and Grandma that always takes place during his walks.
