My family is still fairly young; that's what happens when you're on the front end of the birth order instead of the back. We only have one baby in our family--and she turned three last week. For her birthday last year, I wrote one of my more introspective pieces about change and time and life stages--all of which has proven to be true in the following year!

But this isn't a somber, "let's analyze life, love, and the pursuit of happiness" post. Nope, not at all. This post is actually a video post. I know, I know. I try not to post videos, but this one is only 17 seconds long. Taken a few days after Adrie was born; I promise, no babies were harmed in the filming of this video:

Okay, but here's the funny part. For the last three years, I've been getting comments about this video submitted by the oh so intelligent and well-written users of YouTube. Viewed 13,540+ times, people have got something to say about my shocking the baby that way. Don't I know babies can die from doing that?

So. I shall hereby publicly apologize to my niece Adrienne. I'm sorry if I almost gave you shaken baby syndrome. And thanks Alaina, for not kicking a hole in my *** because I'm your **** sister who ****** to your baby.

Happy birthday baby girl.

Hahahaha. Who are these idiots that think you were hurting the baby?? Stupid youtubers can't take a joke.

Jody said...

Hahaha, I love it! Everyone has something to say... Did you ever reply to any of the comments?

Nat Attack said...

Ha! Sadly Jody, no comments back. Sometimes if you get involved and respond, they come back with tripled ferocity. I guess I'd rather let sleeping dogs lie.

Someone must spend a LOT of time watching youtubes...(actually I watched it twice!)

Carly said...

That's funny. People are crazy, but you are not one of them. There is no way that could have hurt the baby!

Mallory Jan said...

BAHAHAHAHAHA! wow. thank you so much. ditto to everything Kendall says. I just don't understand why that would make someone so upset?!

Alaina said...

Oh please, we were just trying to keep her awake in the daytime so she'd sleep at night. Sheesh.

And I'm sure she'll forgive you. IN fact, when she wakes up from her nap right now, I'll show her this video and tell you her reaction. Guarantee she'll find it hilarious.

Definitely, maybe, probaby related posts:
