My sweet little boy is now 4 years old. So big, yet still so small.
When T was born, I HAD to have a video camera. Unfortunately, it is a bit complicated, so we have not used it much. Any video we have taken has been waiting patiently on itty bitty video tapes. How difficult can it to transfer this to DVD? Apparently, difficult and time consuming enough to prevent us from doing it.
Finally, we are working on it. Hours of random video that is yawn inducing and repetitive to others is so sweet and special to me. Plus, the kids love to see themselves. I always loved the old reels of family movies on the actual projector when I was little. I think they have recently resurfaced, and I would love to see them again!
Back to the birthday...on his big day, T and I had a nice trip to the Veggie Tales movie and the candy store (gummy sharks). After dinner, he blew out his candles on a cupcake. He received a sing-a-long CD player and a soccer goal from mom, dad and C-bear. The rest of the night, we heard a thousand sing-a-long renditions of "We are the Dinosaurs" by Laurie Berkner. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately...), the microphone was busted by this morning. That didn't stop T from performing another dozen versions of his song for the video camera though!
When he unwrapped the soccer goal, he said in a very serious voice, " Dad, this is not a present. This is a summer toy." Hmmm. Yes, that's the trouble with a winter birthday.
