Here are some of the videos we have taken of Joshua with our digital (MiniDV) video camera. Files are named with the date taken (year, month, day) with a letter at the end to differentiate between videos taken on the same day. There's a short description for each file as well. I included the filesizes so those with a modem or other slower connection will know which videos are feasible to download. As always, I suggest downloading the video to your machine before watching it (right-click, save target as) so you can watch as many times as you want. If the files are too large for you to download, contact me and I can send a CD to you with these videos on it.

Joshua is now walking all over, with very little crawling. We've also started putting him in shoes, and he likes them enough to ask for them even when wearing pajamas. He likes to throw and kick his ball to other people as well as by himself. There is also a hi-res version of this video here.

Here's a video showing Joshua walking. He's been doing it for a while, but we've been bad about getting it on video. Just in the last day, he's started walking a lot more to get between places. Before now, he'll take a few steps, then drop down and crawl because it gets him there faster. There is also a hi-res version of this video here.

Joshua's 1st birthday, with cake and presents. There is also a hi-res version of this video here. If the video doesn't work (i.e., you only get audio), you need to download the xvid codes (located here for Windows). This video will need a decently fast computer, but the video should look much clearer. Let me know any problems you have.

This is a video of Joshua taken about an hour after birth. He's lying on the couch, and you get to see a tiny hand and his dark hair.
