Big News!

Many of you probably know from Facebook or Twitter, but last week on Tuesday, my wife gave birth to our first child, Malcolm Nathaniel Smith. For some reason people (read: ladies) are interested in stats like the size and weight of the child. I think videos are much more interesting, so here are a couple for you.

I also highly recommend the camera I used to shoot these videos: Flip Video Camera


This is a standard definition camera that has a usb connection built into it making it compact and very easy to save videos to your computer without messing with firewires or usb cables. It uses flash memory which is nice because you don't have to mess with tapes, but it does limit you to an hour of video that can be stored on the camera at any given time.

If the standard def is a problem, you should know that they have an HD version available now that records at 720p.

Thanks to my good buddy Chris Tonick for lending me the camera to capture the first few shots of Malcolm.

Update: I realized after reading this post to my wife that I gave more stats about a camera than my son! So here you go.
Born: 12-2-2008 11:25 pm
Weight: 6 lbs 12 oz
Length: 19 3/4 inches
I claimed that he was the best looking baby in the hospital, but my wife disagrees. She says he's the best in the world. Either way, he's pretty darn cool.

Perhaps you should change your profile to reflect the fact that you also live with your son! You don't want people thinking your hermit crabs and cat take precedent :)

Thanks for the tip, Caleb. I'll look into it.
