Our Chatterbox

Although no “real” words yet, Wesley is certainly trying to tell us something. We have a little video of one of his ramblings here. Just so you know, the camera is behind the couch because if Wesley sees it, he gets distracted and stops talking. So, we have to hide it.

Solid Foods, Here We Come

This morning was an epic event in the Clausen household: Wesley ate solid foods for the first time! Well, I should say, he intentionally ate solid foods for the first time. We have decided to start with avocado. He made some priceless faces.

As you may expect, we captured those priceless faces on video. You can watch them here.

Swimming Montage

This video represents two big things for the Clausen family. First is capturing Wesley at his second ever swim lesson. But the second, more exciting component is my first (and not last) foray into editing. Yes, I have been adding little titles here and there to the vids, but this is more than that. There’s fading in and out, there’s panning across pictures, there’s even a song to better set the mood. I hope you enjoy this montage of Wesley swimming with Josh this morning. Because, I hate to tell you, there will be more in the future.

You do have a choice. If you want the quick and dirty version (fast to download, small and pixilated to watch), click HERE.

If, however, you want a slightly better quality option that takes a little longer, click HERE (P.S. this is still pixilated, just not as much. Don’t expect HD, okay?)

For the grandparents

This video may not be interesting to anybody at all, but I have to keep up with the demand from the grandparents. So, here’s something from the wedding on July 18th. By the way, Josh made me do it.

First dance

Belly Laughs

Today Wesley was on a laughing spree, and we caught some of it on tape. He loves when Josh tickles him, but it has to be with sound effects. Yes, this is another laughing video, but much bigger laughs than the previous one. If you’re a grandparent, be prepared to watch this one numerous times.

I should do stand up

Let me tell you, nothing makes you feel quite as good as making a baby laugh.  I’m pretty sure I’m the funniest person around. Josh experienced it on camera with the hand punching (so hilarious!), and now it was my turn. Of course, I make Wesley laugh constantly, it just seems that when the camera comes out, he is so entranced with it that smiles and laughter melt away.  Oh, and this was also his first game of peekaboo.

The Real Rollover

Yes, I know I claimed a couple of months ago that my prodigy was rolling over already, and I even had a video to prove it. Of course, as you may have seen, it was a “cheap” roll over. He had to have his arm under him already and had to get momentum from us rolling him from back to front. Well, now we have the real thing. Today was his first real roll over from tummy to back. We placed him face down with his arms splayed out and he got himself over onto his back.  He was able to do it four times in a row, so we know it wasn’t a fluke. And, yes, I did get a video of time number three.  What else would you expect from me?
