Who’s quiet?

25 09 2006

I talked to my mom today, and one of the comments she made about yesterday’s video is, “Alex is so quiet!” Well, that’s because I muted out the audio for a big chunk of yesterday’s video. Do you want to hear what Alex was up to tonight? Well, you get another video treat… you can listen in on tonight’s Story Time.

So with our new computer, we’ve finally got things set up so we can get video off of our camcorder and onto the computer. So without further ado, please enjoy nearly four minutes of footage of a day in the life of Alex Dewey, containing his developmental highlights from September 2006 (sitting and eating).

First Feeding

19 09 2006

Last week, the hard drive died on one of our computers, and we’d packed up the other computer while we were rearranging furniture in our home office. So that put a kink in our already-slow picture publishing efforts.

But I’m now glad to say that we’ve upgraded our 4 year old desktop with a brand-spanking-new Dell laptop with a gargantuan 17 inch screen. It’s awesome for working with photos — much better than what we had before. We’ve got more resolution, more RAM, more processing power, more everything.

So that’s why you finally get to see pictures from Alex’s first feeding! Yeah, this is a couple of weeks old already, but I still think they are great photos. Molly mashed up some ripe peaches and fed them to Alex. This boy loves to eat! Look at that open mouth:

And Molly doesn’t like this picture, but I think it shows how much fun both Mother and Son had during this feeding. So I’m posting it anyway.
