Tummy Time, Snuffles, Ah-Ah And Gwen

Monday, November 30th, 2009

This short video was shot on the 6th of March, with Anna having some tummy time on the floor. The snuffling was just how her little nose sounded when she was very little, most of the time she now sounds absolutely fine :)
The ah-ah you can hear being handed out is to Gwen, who was still very interested to discover what the newest addition to the house smelt like, and whilst she doesn’t have a bad bone in her body, we were obviously very cautious with Anna around Gwen at the beginning.

Big Cot, Little Baby

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

March the 5th saw Anna asleep downstairs in her cot. The noises you hear were her little blocked up nose. Saline drops did the trick, but she didn’t really seem to enjoy them. Anyway, as she grew bigger and her nasal tubs expanded, that phase was certainly grown out of. For a little while, it was actually disconcerting to listen to her sleep in a dark room – without the snoring, how could you tell she was breathing? I’ll just turn the light on a minute. Yes, she is fine…. Five minutes later, hmmm, no noises for a while, I hope she is OK, I’ll just check she is OK. Dawn arrives. Parents eventually become a little less neurotic :)

A Snort But No Farts

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

Shot on March the 1st 2009, Anna is now eight days old. She is sat on the sofa with Aunty Chris holding her, and you’ll see Irina, John (Aunty Chris’ John, that is) and Mum towards the end of the clip.

I should point out the raspberry sound is me attempting to get Anna’s attention, not anything she produced personally :)

Anna Video Catch Up Begins

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

As I have mentioned a couple of times previously, the videos of Anna on this site have all been taken from Ira’s photo camera. Although we had a camcorder in Britain and here in Kazakhstan, we didn’t often get it out to tape Anna. Not sure why, but there you go. Anyway, I’ve finally dug out the firewire lead and hooked up the camcorder to this PC to transfer the few clips across.

This first one was shot on the 28th February 2009, when Anna was just one week old! I know the clip isn’t very long, but this was the first time we used the camcorder to record how Anna looked.
