Happy Belated New 2008

Tuesday, January 8th, 2008

I’ve added recent photos from my FlickR account to the RSS feed, so if you read me via email updates or RSS you should now get photos when I update them as well. We spent Christmas in Marrakech, and most of the recent photos were taken there. Unfortunately, Yasmina’s grandmother Ginette – who lives in […]

Nathan’s Sunday Morning Outing

Monday, December 10th, 2007

Here is a set of a few clips I took with my mobile phone yesterday. They were edited together using Avisynth and processed with Virtualdub (both free). Since my mobile phone records in 3gp format, they also needed converting via a piece of free software. Here’s the result. Three related photos are on FlickR.

Playing on the Slide

Tuesday, November 6th, 2007

Nathan loves the park close to home, where he can play on the slide, a rocking horse on a spring, and a sort of spinning top. Even now with the colder weather, it’s great to get out and watch him run around and climb up to the top of the slide. I thought the cold […]

Causing Trouble with a Broom

Monday, June 18th, 2007

Nathan loves brushes and brooms, especially when he gets hold of them and starts walking around. Watch as he walks around and babbles away. He gives himself a bit of a surprise at the end of the video… you can’t be too careful with a long broomstick if you’re not watching what you’re doing. This […]

Market in Marrakech

Monday, June 11th, 2007

We took Nathan to Marrakech at the end of May, to see the new house that Yasmina’s Aunt & Uncle have built there. He’s been to Morocco before but this time was different because he’s 19 months old, so he runs around and is generally harder to keep up with. He’s in his new blue […]

Bringing up Bilingual

Monday, February 12th, 2007

I speak English to Nathan as much as possible, while his Mummy speaks French. Obviously, outside the house he’ll hear mostly French except for visits to anglophone friends. He’s now nearly 16 months old, and babbling away in a language which is comprehsible only to him. The more I think about it, the harder it […]

Happy Birthday Nathan!

Saturday, October 14th, 2006

Nathan is one today! He was spoilt with presents – a musical caterpillar, super clothes, a “little people” bus and Noah’s ark, and lots of kisses :-D. He shares his birthday with his cousin Mina, and he had a party in Paris at his Aunt & Uncles’ place. He didn’t blow out his candle, maybe […]

Nathan Stars on YouTube

Monday, October 2nd, 2006

YouTube is a community based site where anyone can upload video and share them with friends and other members of the site. Since I don’t have a whole lot of bandwidth available for this site, it’s a great way to allow you all to see video of Nathan. October 14th will be his first birthday, […]
