Sorry I haven't posted in so darned long, but I've had some serious issues to deal with regarding my website hoster. For those of you who know a bit more about this kind of stuff, my DNS server wasn't pointing to the correct spot (why the site displayed at all is beyond me). So anyway, I'm up and running and have some stuff to show you now.

But what stuff do I have to show? Well, crappy photos, unfortunately. It seems that my camcorder charger has vanished into thin air, as has my digital camera charger. This is ironically funny, really, because I've always kept each of them in their own same spot so I would always remember where they were. So much for that theory. So I've got no camcorder and no camera - what could I possibly use, you ask?

Well, it turns out my cell phone (Palm Treo 700p) has both built into it, but - you guessed it - that's been broken for a while now, too. I purchased it off of eBay second hand for half-price, so of course I got a warranty for it. I sent it back, expecting the fix-it guys to basically reset the phone software and send it back, claiming it's fixed. Of course, that's what happened, but when I reloaded all of my data onto it again, sure enough it started going haywire. So instead of sending it back again, I'm going to try to fix it myself. So much for the warranty. (Actually, in their defense, they did offer to escalate the problem to one of their service techs and even gave me the number to call him - I just haven't gotten around to it, and now I'm so frustrated that fixing it myself is the only way I'll be able to live with myself.)

Luckily, I'm able to used the crippled version of the phone I have now, so I do have some photos to share with you all. Heck, I think I'll even be able to post some videos in the near future.

Did you know that Aiden turned six months today? It's very strange, considering I came home from work today to watch him take his first crawl. What was the draw for him? We set him on one end of the sheet and put Alexis with a glass of water at the other (oh yeah, did I mention he's been drinking water out of a cup and eating watered-down rice cereal for about a month now?), and sure enough the old carrot-on-a-string trick worked. Here's a photo of him going to town, along with some other ones I've had kicking around for a while.

Enjoy!

Well, I hope this kept you guys interested for now. I'll be sure to post some video soon, because I'm sure you'll be thrilled to have proof that I'm not just Photoshopping his pictures everywhere. Believe it or not, a baby can be this cute.
