Mazen Duke Week One

March 14, 2013

It’s been six months and we had yet to edit any of the video footage from Mazen’s first week. I suppose I was waiting for some chunk of time to make a really nice video. Um, maybe that will happen when Mazen goes to college?! So instead, I sorted through the dozens of videos I have and strung together some clips. No music or pretty sequences – just some real life footage of our first week at home.

Coming up next: The First Three Months video

Ha, I’m in this video! That’s me in the purple shirt walking behind you at the farmer’s market. I remember seeing you there, but didn’t want to interrupt the first family outing. Sorry I got In the shot!

REALLY!? What are the chances!


5 CM March 14, 2013 at 11:03 am

I live around the corner from that market and go every Wednesday when it’s in season, so probably not too slim πŸ™‚ I do remember how happy you three looked though!


6 KERF March 14, 2013 at 12:42 pm

Oh fun! Maybe I’ll see you there this year : )

So sweet and a great reminder to me to get on the video thing! We’ve taken a ton but haven’t done much with them. And my sweet Sammy is almost a year old- where does the time?


8 Sarah March 14, 2013 at 11:45 am

What a great video! Makes me really excited for my little boy to get here in May πŸ™‚


9 Erin March 14, 2013 at 11:59 am

What a cutie! We’re expecting a boy in August and I love the striped onesies! Where are they from? Thanks!


10 KERF March 14, 2013 at 12:42 pm

THey are Carter’s and we loved them!


11 Stephanie March 14, 2013 at 12:17 pm

So cute, thanks for sharing with us. My son is 3 months and I’m already nostalgic about his newborn days too! This brought back some memories! Love the little baby squeaks!


12 Renee King March 14, 2013 at 12:20 pm

aww, Kath that is so sweet. What a great way for you all to look back at how much he has grown. He will treasure it forever and so will you. They grow so fast, and time goes so fast. This is a great thing to do.

P.S. Does the fresh air thing really help him to sleep better?


13 KERF March 14, 2013 at 12:42 pm

Haha – no the fresh air didn’t work : )


14 Laura March 14, 2013 at 12:28 pm

That…that’s so hilarious re: CM’s comment above. What are the odds?

Anyway, this is so cute!! What program do you use to edit your videos?


15 KERF March 14, 2013 at 12:41 pm

Windows Live Movie Maker – it’s free I think with Windows Live stuff


16 Laura March 14, 2013 at 4:01 pm

awesome, I like it very much! thanks:)


17 Renee March 14, 2013 at 12:54 pm

I was hoping it did. I know C’s would have loved to hear it worked. She is not sleeping well but I guess 5 shots and teething will do that to you.


18 Kaila @healthyhelperblog! March 14, 2013 at 1:26 pm

What kind of camera do you use?! It’s so clear and picks up great sound!


19 KERF March 14, 2013 at 2:05 pm

The Canon Mark II. I talk more about cameras in my KERF photography post : )


20 Kristi March 14, 2013 at 1:38 pm

I suddenly got sad this week thinking that we don’t have any videos of our 3.5 month old. Although there wouldn’t be much to see in the first 2 months – he slept like 22hrs a day lol! It is crazy how fast they change and how quickly you forget all the little things they do!


21 CaitlinHTP March 14, 2013 at 3:47 pm

you and your sister sound exactly alike!


22 KERF March 14, 2013 at 4:32 pm



23 Jennifer March 15, 2013 at 8:52 am

Yes, you do. Exactly alike.

That’s a great video! I love all of the baby sounds. Look how much he’s changed in just this short time.


24 Lisa @bitesforbabies March 14, 2013 at 3:56 pm

How precious! πŸ˜‰


25 Tina Morrow March 14, 2013 at 5:21 pm

I adored your video! Mazen is so sweet. Now I’m super excited to hold my daughter, Caroline Niziol’s baby! I wish I had footage of her at that age. Thanks for sharing this πŸ™‚


26 Bruna March 15, 2013 at 7:39 am

Ohhh sooo cute! I sure think this is such a wonderful idea!


27 Leslie March 15, 2013 at 6:52 pm

This is so cute!!! Its making me really excited to meet my little one in 6 weeks!


28 Nicole March 15, 2013 at 7:10 pm

I think it’s so cool at minute 1:13 how he’s demonstrating the crawl and root reflex that all babies have that will help them crawl up the mom’s tummy/chest to fine the breast—it’s SO clear that’s what he’s doing there!


29 Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles March 15, 2013 at 10:32 pm

I just adore this! Doesn’t it seem that it was just last week that you were bringing him home?!
I was telling my husband the other day that we should start planning the first birthday party because the first six months FLEW by!!!!!
