A few weeks ago Amy found an old recorder for Sam to play with. He immediately took to blowing through it, and in this video plays along with mom’s French horn. When he first began to get sounds out of it, he’d crack up every time he heard a noise come out. He’s a natural, I tell ya!
About a month ago, Sam began to show us the hand motions to the itsy-bitsy spider song. Here, he’s accompanied by our resident musician. Click on ‘play’ triangle to start video on the page.
I’ve spent some time this weekend working on digitizing and editing videos we’ve taken of Sam over the last six months. The big result of that project was a DVD with all the clips, but I’m slowly working on short outtakes for the blog. I’m using YouTube.com, one of many Web 2.0 sites allowing user-generated content like this to have a (free!) home on the web. This should make it easier for everyone to see these clips. Up first – Sam’s very first visit to the beach when we were in Sarasota in March, visiting Amy’s mom and dad. Click on the ‘play’ triangle in the image above to start video playback in this window – total run time is 2:47.
Okay all you geeks out there – now for something really useful coming out of the Web 2.0 biddness – a fresh-for-2006 site to let you research, catalog and of course – TAG – your wine drinking – WineLog.net. The site includes a nice bit of integration with mobile, allowing a user to send wine details to a portable device. Along with trying to remember to send moblog photos of any wines we drink to the Flickr Wine Memory Jogger group. It’s free to register on WineLog, so give it a try – I know I will.
