A New Toy

Josh and I decided it was time for our family to get a video camera!  With Grayson due in 5 days, yes 5 days- I can barely believe it's time, we wanted to be able to capture our newest family member in pictures AND video.  I've never had a desire for a video camera before, ever, until now.  We got one of those small, handheld, the size-of-your-cell-phone ones.  We were trying to decide between the Flip and the Kodak Playsport.  I read a bunch of reviews online and watched YouTube videos comparing the two different ones and finally decided the Kodak was the one for us!  I really liked that this camera had image stabilization (to help make the videos less shaky) and another fun thing is that it is waterproof up to 10 ft.  How cool is that?  You can take it with you underwater and take pictures and video!

Isn't it pretty?! Here are the 2 views of it.  I wanted the purple one, but Josh didn't like that idea.  So we got blue instead, which is still good.

I just tried to upload a little video I took testing it out, but it didn't work. :(

Now (I think) we are ALL READY for little Gray to come!  And believe me, I AM ready!  Restless sleep and back pain if I sit down for more than 10 minutes are the funnest parts right now.  :/  Sitting through church is hard!  And I don't even think about going to a movie theater anymore- no way.  Laying down and standing up are good though.  It makes anything to do with the computer hard.  My back is hurting as I type, but I can't lay down and type.  Enough complaining!  I'm feeling good for the most part.  My mom flys into town today and I'm excited to have her here.  I'm 39 weeks now, but haven't taken a picture yet.  Here is my 38 weeks picture-

Hopefully soon we will have super exciting news to post about!!!

Lol actually the BEST part about your new awesome camera being water proof- is that Grayson can slobber and chew on it!!! Not that you'll want him to, but its likely that you wont be able to prevent it! Lol I always have to worry with my iPhone :(. Anyways, that's an awesome camera! I dint know they existed!! Way cool! Sorry your in pain :/ its necessary though, to make you so so miserable that you actually want onto through child birth!! Good luck! Love you! You look great!
