12 month video!

With Drew's birthday quickly approaching, I've been working on his 12 month video and actually finished it early! I've been slacking off on these videos the past couple months, so it's about time I came up with some more exciting clips. I'm planning to keep this birthday low key even as I struggle a little with the too-close-to-Christmas overcompensation tendencies. But, honestly, does Drew care? I think not. I'll start saving up my energy for the years when he does.

It's about six minutes long and pretty big (21.7MB) and Keith keeps begging me to re-process it into a shadow of it's former self for people with slow connections. But after all that work, I hate reducing the quality more than I must. Please ignore all the dirt and clutter. I did.

What I want to know is why does Drew's head seem to gravitate towards the upper left corner of the video?

Gimli! Come on, is that all you can say after watching such a moving clip?

Haha, Such a gimli-ish comment. I love the way Ethan is reminded of lollipops after seeing the ball in Drew's mouth. What a super vid

Love the waving...:)

Stanne watched with me and was so entranced, he bit the screen.

What a labor of love! Every second was fabulous. I liked his side-arm wave too.

Thanks everyone!

Nate, what can I say? Maybe Drew will develop a left-hand dominance or lean to the left politically?! I know not.

PS - Where was the dirt and clutter that we were supposed to ignore?

Claire said...

Yes- Where IS the dirt n cluttah? From your warning, I expected to see mounds of topsoil in your living room or something...

Ha,ha...I guess I managed to edit most of it but I kept cringing while filming as I spied the messes around me...thanks for not noticing.
