No, Fletcher has not learned to do somersaults. The title refers to our new little gadget. We are not a gadget family, necessarily, but my sister recently got a flip video recorder and has been carrying it around and actually using it (vs. just storing it under three inches of dust in the cabinet, which is what I do with my current camcorder), so naturally I had to get one myself (by the way, after I bought ours online I spotted the minoHD with tripod on sale at Costco). It is not that our "old" camcorder is a relic or anything (got it when Fletcher was just moving from isolette to crib in the NICU, so it is barely over two years old). In fact, it is a hard-drive recorder, so I don't even have to mess with tapes. Problem is, we can't find the editing software, and the Flip just makes it SOO easy!
I just unwrapped it mere minutes ago, found Fletcher playing in his playroom and pushed a button. Then I plugged it into the computer and pushed a couple more buttons and here it is. Not the most exciting footage (although personally I am impressed at how well Fletcher is starting to follow directions when I ask him to bring his hands up) but I thought I would share our "first flip." Enjoy!
