Well this past weekend Brent, Jackson and I went to get pictures taken at Olan Mills. Jackson hadn't eaten in 3 hours so I thought it would be way rough. (It was either feed him and have spit ups throughout the session or not feed him and face a grumpy baby.) Well he was great. He smiled for every picture until the very end when they sat him down by himself. Even those were good just not giggly. Those pictures will have to come later but when we got home Brent was inspired. After burping him, he stuck the burp cloth in the back of his outfit and started flying him around like super baby. (For those of you who know Brent that is nothing out of the ordinary.) Then he got the great idea to make a cool picture of super baby. He rummaged through the house for all the fans he could find, the lightest burp cloth to blow through the wind, a backdrop and fixed the lighting for the shot. My poor baby was placed in front of these three fans blowing full blast to try to get the effect of the cape blowing in the wind. None of the pictures turned out as Brent would have liked but after all that effort I had to post at least one of the attempt.
For those of you who may not know, Jackson does not like to be on his tummy. I try so hard to give him tummy time but I can only listen to the cries for so long. If any one has any more advice for that I'd love to hear. Today, however, after reviewing jackson's cousin jacob's blog, i decided to put him on the boppy to test it out. It worked so nice.

But of course nothing last forever.

Now I've received the comment about putting video on the blog. I'd love to do this but this is another case where I need help. We have a video camera that records on mini-dvds and a regular camera. Unless I don't get it it ( which is entirely possible) I can't put any dvds on the blog until I fill up the dvd. Is that true? How do y'all do it?

I don't think that is true. I use the software from the camera and edit out the segment I want and save it to the computer. This is usually a .mpg and that should work on the blog. This is not your tech mama.

Hmm... don't know how to get video from mini dvds. We take video on our digital camera and import it like pictures, then upload them to Google Video. And about tummy time, Austin hated it too! I'm glad he's not the only one. He liked tummy time better outside, because he liked everything better outside. But it wasn't really till he learned how to roll that he finally got to liking it.

Neither one of my kids liked tummy time very much. I used the boppy a lot. Just do it a few minutes a day and he will get used to it.
Can't wait to see the pictures!

I had visions of Jacob being an adult man and unable to hold his head up. However, soon enough it all worked and he was a proficient at all of his "tummy time" skills. Good luck!

he doesn't like tummy time cause he has nothing to look at but the floor...I think you'd start crying to if you only had the floor to stare at
