Big day for us all here at the Hanselman House. My nephew Spox’s 6th birthday was today, so Mo’s sister Nqobile and her husband threw a party.
It's also Z's 11 month birthday if you can believe that, Dear Reader. Here's a video of Z at about one hour old for comparison. ;)
Z has been "cruising" for the last month or so, holding on to the couch and the like. He's taken a few steps here and there, in desperate leaps from parent to parent, but we haven't really felt that was the "official he's walking" event.
This evening I was screwing around with this little cheap Canon Mini DV ZR700 that I won. It's kind of a cheesy camera...I prefer the heft and video quality of my Sony Digital 8mm, but this little Canon has a neat anamorphic 480p-style 16x9 widescreen video that makes family DVDs look more professional and certainly nicer on an HD TV, even though it's not an HD video camera. We'll be taking it to Tanzania where we'll be spending the whole of December.
But, I digress! It was with this little camera that we taped Z walking down our hallway this evening, and with Vista RC2's "Windows Movie Maker" that I squish that video and present it to you here!
