Just got a webcam and signed up for Skype and Justin.TV accounts. Here is a test video that I did, and this is a test blog entry:

Liam will never forgive me when he's older. yields the following:

As soon as he's big enough, he will beat me up. If my calculations are correct, that will be in about 2 weeks.


  • Birth: 6 pounds 4 ounces, 19.5 inches, 10th percentile

  • 2 weeks: 7 pounds 6 ounces, 21 inches, 25th percentile

  • 10 weeks: 13 pounds 10 ounces, 24 inches, 90th percentile

Yes, Liam is the Michelin Man.

Gu: The Home Video, Part 2

One more:

Gu: The Home Video

Liam and I were talking today. He was lamenting the fact that the U.S. is no longer a hegemon--a fact that we have both realized for a few years (though the general populace has disputed). The discussion started out stimulating enough, but things fell apart when we disagreed on exactly when America had surpassed its zenith: my argument is that it began when the high-minded and entitled "manifest destinati" sought empire--and attained it! Ever since then, our nation has grown toward fat and lazy. It took a couple of centuries to get from there to where we are, but the catalyst of our woes germinated way back then, when we thought we were entitled to everything. That attitude has become a part of our sickeningly selfish individualism, and our greed and pride is now beginning to overcome us, after rotting the soul of America for aaaaall these years.

Liam takes the easy way out, and blames everything on W. Then again, I guess I've read more books than he has.

So, by the time our conversation disintegrated, his vocabulary had been reduced to babbling--he knew I was right. It took Chelsie a while to get the camera out, so we didn't get the best part of the debate (the part where I made him cry). Man, we even had podiums set up and everything!

Anyhow, not the most stimulating of conversations with the boy, but nevertheless, you can hear him speaking now. We hope you enjoy!

Liam smiles a lot, but he usually clams up when I get the camera cocked and ready. Well, I got it this time! He sometimes even smiles so much that he can't contain it and lets out a little giggle! We love this boy!

Deceived! told me that there was no need for me to download and save the images for the skin I chose from their site. Wrong! If you notice how bland our blog looks with noting more than style tags and no images, I think it's fair enough to brand personnel as deceivers. Woops, you guys, you messed up.
