The baby walks

I'm interrupting my normal stream of backlogged posts to provide an update that is less than a week old: Jacob is walking. April 30 was the magical day that he went from taking one or two tentative and wobbly steps propelled primarily by momentum to taking about 10 steps. Every day since then, he has added steps and lost some wobble. I've tried a kabillion times to get video, but I always hit record either too late or too early and since I don't know how to edit video (and really don't feel like learning at this juncture in my life when I already have enough to obsess over), I end up scrapping the ones where I start too early. I did get a short clip on day three of walking that misses the first few steps but is better than nothing. You can watch it here if you are so inclined. Fair warning: like all my videos, it's really the kind of video that only grandparents and aunties would be even remotely interested in.

Speaking of boring videos, I have been uploading quite a few of them to my channel lately. A couple months ago, we were watching all the baby Hannah videos and realizing that there was a big gap in videos and that Jacob's baby years were all but lost, so I started to ramp up my game a bit. My only lament is that cell phone video cameras take horizontal video. Vertical video really sucks.
