Because Grandma Asked For It

Firstly, I want you all to know that I already know I am a complete idiot. I certainly wouldn't want any of you to feel you had to break your current record for "most posts read without leaving a comment" to point out to me the zen-like totality of my idiocy. I am aware. I am at peace.

Secondly, although I am willing to stipulate that the mistake was entirely mine, and that a smarter person would have automatically intuited that a humble digital camera, in its handy-dandy movie mode, will not record from anything other than a horizontal angle, I would like to point out--in my defense--that the view on the preview screen did change. She was upright and vertical when I was watching her on the camera. But I'm an idiot, see, and it is beyond my puny intellect to understand why the camera would record something entirely different from what I was seeing on the preview screen. This is the way, apparently, of techonolgy and the world of dunces in which I roam free.

Thirdly, it's Norwegian. Deal with it.

What a sweet child!!! Jamie, Amanda looks just like Emma, and they BOTH look just like Torbjörn. I am SOOO jealous of her Norwegian pronunciation...
Have a great Easter!

I'm just so relieved that I wasn't actually supposed to understand any of that, what with me not spraking the norsk and all.

Regardless: adorable!

Ohhhhh.....sweet Amanda Grandma Gae! And really, Jamie, it's not that difficult to pick up the computer screen and turn it 90 degrees. I've done it 7 times now.

The new room looks great! Do they love having so much space? You're turning into quite a decorator -- I'm impressed!

Again, thanks for the song. See what you can do about getting the other two to perform. I'm still asking for it.

Buying the a computer and getting it to work properly is no more complicated than building a nuclear reactor from wristwatch parts in a darkened room using only your teeth. I think you are doing great. Love the motion picture.
