Valentine's Day Video Present

>> Tuesday, February 14, 2012

I made the following video for my wife for Valentine's Day. I don't expect most of you to watch this, but for those that WANT to, here's nearly 15 minutes of our cute little Henry from birth through his 8 month birthday:

Direct link:


1:00 mark: He spent the better part of 6 weeks - 16 weeks like that. We didn't take many videos of him crying, but he did a LOT of that.
2:24 mark: That was his first real giggles!
5:12 mark: His first attempt at solid food.
7:35 mark: This is one of my favorite videos! He just falls over and then starts talking. So cute!
8:39 mark: Henry has a BIG GAG. He does this every time he eats solid food.
9:40 mark: Henry makes fart noises on my shoulder. Funny guy!
12:00 mark: We play like this a lot! :)
12:27 mark: Baby butt! I repeat: BABY BUTT!!!
13:57 mark: The last 2 "bye-bye" clips were on his 8 month birthday. He just started to wave bye-bye earlier that day! (First to Pharmie's friends, and then to my Dad.)

I think Pharmie's grateful that THIS clip did NOT make it into the last video. It's Henry running his fingers through my chest hair as he often does...

BIG yank at the 6 second mark. :)

Well, after class tonight, I think Pharmie and I are going to have a Valentine's Day drink.

I like mojitos (as noted from our 2009 trip to Cozumel), but don't worry - I won't go overboard. I'll just have one.

p.p.s. Sorry I just said "deets."

I watched the whole video. Got a little teary thinking about how I wish I had taken more video of both of my kids when they were this age. Now my Henry's laughter is so loud and obnoxious that it is hardly what I would call "cute", but baby giggles are too precious. Though I'm sure you hear it all the time, cherish this time as they go so fast.

Love the video of Henry! What a wonderful, compassionate gift for your wife!

The hub did this for me-

and we're hoping next year we'll have a wee one to hang with on Valentine's Day :-)

Best to you and your family!

i cannot wait to watch the video (at work, can't now)

love me some henry. are you against arranged marriages because i have a 3 year old daughter that is fantastic!! ;)

Fun video--the thing I found the most entertaining was listening to you and Pharmie talking. I've been reading your blog for a couple years now, but never really thought about what your voice/mid-west accent sounded like. Brings a whole new light to the reading!

Thanks everyone!

Kim, really!? That's funny!

TriMOEngr, I can't wait until our Henry gets bigger, but I'm sure I'll miss this time!

Wendy, what a gift! :)

Jen, I'm not AGAINST pre-arranged marriages. But could your daughter handle her in-laws? ;)

Tim, I'm really "Dadding it up" in the video... I don't normally sound QUITE as high-pitched and excitable. Although if you're hearing a mid-western accent, that's still there when I talk normally. :)
