Videos of Mom

Lyndee's pediatrician suggested
at her
check up last week
that I make a video of myself
for her to watch
while we are in Alaska for 10 days this Summer.
Without her
(Boo Hoo!).

I know, some of you are wondering
"What is this lady's problem?
Get a life outside of your children."

Believe me, I have a life
outside of my children.

I have hobbies.
Several of them, in fact
(uh-oh. where'd they go?).

I have friends
(They keep track of themselves, thank goodness).

It's just that
Who doesn't want to nibble these cheeks
for lunch?

or kiss that forehead at the end of the day?

So, the video:

1. Can I stand to watch myself long enough to edit a decent video?

2. What are some songs or finger plays I can do?

I thought of
Tooth Bugs (I do not want to clean my teeth...)
Here's a Ball for Baby (so big and soft and round...)
10 Little Fingers (...and they all belong to me...)
My Hands (... upon my head I'll place...)

3. What else can I do? Why is this so hard?

Lyndee's on my Team!

This is my first experiment with putting video
(woo hoo! high tech!)
on my blog.

aren't these two too cute?
and Landon?
(turn up the volume)

"Go Lyndee!"
This is the first race she won...
She'll be 1 year old next week.
Dexter is 7 months old.
This was the 4th or 5th race.
He was getting tired.

She's just getting the hang of it.
