DVD now available

Well the DVD of the first six months is done. I took the video we shot, some pics and special items we have like the UGA certificates and the White House birth notes and pout them all together into a DVD movie.

I found that in the process that we needed to upgrade our camera, which we have now done. Also in building the DVD, I now know I have to do some more practice before I build the next DVD.

If any family or friends would like a DVD, please drop me an email and I will ship one out to you. If you get a DVD, it may or may not act like a normal DVD as that was one of the issues I had in building the menus. Hopefully I will have that worked out by the time I build the next one.

Harlan and Lanier Videos

Here are some links to some baby clips that I have placed on google video.

Harlan - Tickle me Harlan -

Lanier - Flying Lanier -

UGA research study

Well the girls got invited back to do another UGA research study at the Infant Attention Lab. Last time Harlan was the trooper and did well and Lanier was really not into the whole thing. This time Harlan was upset and Lanier did as best she could.

They had to sit in front of a TV and watch some images, they were focusing on eye movements, but after 5 minutes or so, Lanier got bored, while Harlan just got upset. So again we have a reversal of roles.

Ok sorry for the lack of updates

Well its been a wild month, computer crashes, video editing and baby time, plus work, so I haven't made it around to updating this lately. Well he is a recap of the last month.

  • We have started trying to give them rice cereal. It seems that Harlan is taking to it more than Lanier, but then again, the first time we tried it, Lanier really liked it. So not sure what's up with that.
  • Lanier has now switched places with Harlan, Lanier is now the one wanting to be held 24/7, while Harlan is into her routine a little be better.
  • Tomorrow is our 6 month baby checkup. More shots for the babies. Ouch
  • I'm going to look for a place where I can upload baby videos for those that want to watch. I have edited, but will be re-editing after my computer crash the 0-6 month video. Turns out we thought we had a good video camcorders, but once it is uploaded to DVD it did not meet our standards, so we will be starting their 6 month birthday with a new camcorders.
  • Once I have a site for the videos, scaled down from DVD length, I will post a link here.
  • Harlan is a flipping baby, all she wants to do is flip from back to stomach, although she can't go from stomach to back. Lanier on the other hand, has some issues going from back to stomach, but no issues really going the other way.
  • Both babies are very interested in the balls we got for them. They have rattles and ribbon and they really like to try and grab those. Altoough the one with the ribbon we will have to watch to make sure it doesn't come off.

More tomorrow after the babies check up. Also we have some new pics that I need to upload.
