Megan Eating Corn

I'm working on a video from our Gatlinburg trip. I came across this clip and decided to post it to the blog. We gave Megan her first ear of corn. She really enjoyed it, but hammed it up a bit when she saw that she was getting attention with her fake cough. She actually started doing the fake cough several months ago.

Her fondness of attention and enjoyment of laughter is part of her personlaity that comes through on these videos. Click on the "Windows Media" below. You may be asked to save the file or open it. If you click to open it it should open Windows Media Player whenever the file completes loading. If not, you may need to save the file and open it with whatever software on your computer that plays .WMV (Windows Media) files.

Windows Media

I'll eventually replace the phrase "Windows Media" with something else, but it'll do for now.

Video of Laughing, Clapping, and First Steps

We had a great time in Gatlinburg last week. Barbara had been there with her mother all week. Laura, Megan and I drove up on Wednesday. Matt Joined us on Thursday, and we all drove back to our respective homes on Saturday. While we were in Gatlinburg Megan took her first steps. I didn't catch that on video, but I got her very close to walking.

I think I finally have figured out how to post video to this blog. I haven't gone through all the tests yet, but I think that you can view the video by simply clicking on the URL below:
Try clicking on

Windows Media (7.1 MB)

You might need to have Windows Media Player installed on your computer, but I'm pretty sure that it comes standard with Windows XP and is the default player. If you have my email address, let me know if you are able to view the video and whether you needed to do anything other than simply click the URL to get the player to open and to play the video. If this works well, I'll be posting more video.

Megan also learned to climb stairs and had her first entry into a swimming pool while we were in Gatlinburg.

We are invited to her first birthday party tomorrow, and then off to Myrtle Beach on Saturday for a few days with Matt, Laura, and Megan.
