Attack of the Blog!

(Alternate title: Moar Babbys)

In keeping with my tradition of offloading tons of pictures and videos very rarely, I present to you: tons of pictures and videos! It's been really awesome watching Amelia develop her own unique personality lately. Her favorite activities are trying to stand, trying to walk and playing with our smartphones. Her absolute least favoritest is when we don't help her do any of those things.

Christmas with Sam's side of the family was great fun, and Amelia loved tearing the bows off of presents. She got lots of little books, lots of cute clothes, and all the attention she could ever want. The next big event is her first birthday party on the 25th of February and a two-week vacation to Florida after that! We'll make sure to take plenty of pictures and videos, of course.

The three words she uses most regularly are "mummm," "DA," and "nonononono;" she babbles almost constantly now. Except when she's around new people or in new places, when she goes back to her older, studious self. She's still friendly, and doesn't hide from strangers; she's just not really excited around them either.

Speaking of babbling, I'm going to stop and just get on with the pictures; new ones start here. And this time I didn't forget the videos: here are all of the new ones:

I Almost Forgot!

There are new videos! Including a chatty baby! How could you not watch them below!? If you don't watch them, pandas will cry :(

A Rare and Elusive Blog Post

Yeah, yeah, we've heard it all before. Well-meaning blogger looses interest and allows his amazing blog to languish in the land of no updates. Well, though the blog may have been stagnant, I can assure you that we've still been taking plenty of pictures and video, and it's high time somebody got their act together and shared them!

Well, that somebody is me, and that time (what do you mean I didn't mention a time?) is now! Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I present to you six- and seven-month-old Amelia! Impossibly, she's actually gotten more cute! Anyway, the pics are at the usual place, with new ones beginning here.

4th of July! But.... No Fireworks Pictures

Yeah, I just took some videos after they started, but they didn't turn out the best, so NO FIREWORKS FOR YOU!

But! I do have a decentish consolation prize (two of them actually):

I'll get the videos uploaded some time... maybe...

Nighttime Chatterin'

Amelia often likes to chatter at us just after we turn the light off to go to sleep. I decided to record some of her wonderfully cute noises. Enjoy!

The Prodigal Blog...


Wow, it's been a while since I made a post. I started going back to work about three weeks ago, and I wasn't really prepared for the sudden increase in... well, Sammy says "shit to do" and that's really the best way to put it. Alls I can say is, "oof."

Sam's parents just flew back to Toledo from their one week visit and we're moving back into the old routine. Of course, Amelia has added a whole 'nother week of development during that time, and all of those changes kind of hit us all at once after we became her primary caregivers again (Debbie had a habit of swooping in on the baby and carrying her off at even the slightest sign of wiggles--like a massive, benevolent, bird of prey, really!)

Anyway, we didn't (completely) cut off the picture stream in the time that I've avoided blog posts, and I've just uploaded a couple of big batches to both the Grandparents and Amelia albums. I include my usual sample below. (And yes, Noelle, I know I snuck some pictures of Tommy into the Grandparents album--whatever!)

New grandparent pictures start here; new baby pictures here.
