My first try at embedded video clips.
Hello blogland!

Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine wasn't as fun as I had hoped, due to Snuggle Bug being sick. He started running a fever last Friday evening and continued on through the night. I slept in his room part of the evening because I was so worried about him.

He woke up at 4 o'clock Saturday morning crying. I picked him up out of his crib to comfort him and to give him more Children's Tylenol and he proceeded to vomit chunks all over himself and me. After cleaning us both up, I gave him the Tylenol and put him into our bed with us. He continued running a temperature, up to 102 degrees F most of Saturday. His fever finally broke Saturday evening and he slept through the night. Yesterday was better, but we still stayed close to home and took it easy.

I want to try to attach some video clips to this post. This is my first attempt and I'm not sure if I'll get it right, but I'm going to try! These were taken during a day at our favorite park last Thursday. We often go to feed the ducks.

Do me a favor, leave me a comment and let me know whether or not you were able to access these 2 videos. Thanks! Enjoy!

OW, I have tried and tried. I don't know if it is your end or mine. I have been having some minor problems with my computer of late. I so much wanted to see your videos. I'm going to try again one more time before I go watch t.v. with my Dad. It is our gilmore girl time. ha.

But I wanted to let you know what was happening on my end. The first time I tried my computer crashed, but i had a lot of stuff open at the time... The second time I got the dreaded Not responding message and internet explorer crashed so one more time. This time I'll start with the second clip. If it doesn't work I'll let you know later.

Oh, I wish your videos would load - they look like they'd be cute. I'm sorry your weekend wasn't as much fun as you'd hoped - mine ended with me finding a tick on my leg! I think it was that sort of weekend.

At 3:43 PM, Blogger Michelle said...

Not working for me either - bummer! It's giving me the same problem as catch ... I click on the arrow and it says loading and then stays there! I hope you can figure it out so we can see that little Snuggle Bug of yours!

Sorry to hear he was so sick over the weekend :( Hope he's feeling a lot better today!

At 3:45 PM, Blogger Michelle said...

I just clicked on the video again (after it says loading) and then it takes me to the youtube website and says "This video is private. Please make sure you accept the sender's friend request."

Same lack of video on my end....sorry to hear about your sick little guy. Fever and vomiting together, yuk, nobody's favorite:-( Hope he's feeling better!

At 5:00 PM, Blogger PEA said...

It's doing the same for me...says loading but doesn't go any further. Hope you can figure it out so that we can watch them...he looks so cute:-) So sorry to hear that he was so ill over the weekend...always heartbreaking to see a child not feeling well. Hopefully he'll be 100% in no time!

At 5:32 PM, Blogger pithydithy said...

Me too. :-(

At 5:59 PM, Blogger MugwumpMom said... got stuck on loading. I know it's gotta bug to hear that for the 11th time!

At 6:39 PM, Blogger Overwhelmed! said...

Okay, I finally got it to work for me. I had to change the videos from private to public (I wasn't aware of this setting until I searched for it) and I also had to install a newer version of some MacroMedia Flash (Adobe's version, I think) on my computer for it to work.

Try it again ladies. Hopefully it'll work for you know.

I did notice that the resolution on this is not so hot. It's much better before I uploaded it!

Sorry, I too have tried to watch it. I even opened another window to do stuff while I waited. Came back about 10 minutes later and it is still downloading. Hmm...I tried to download a video for my blog, and mytube won't work for me, so you got farther than I did!

At 7:05 PM, Blogger Sue said...

I think it's still stuck on loading.
That's the only message I get.
So sorry your sweet one was ill ...

At 7:45 PM, Blogger Midlife Moments said...

I saw them! The end of the first one cracked me up! "Forget the ducks, Im eatin the bread man!" and the second one was adorable..

I am sorry your little one was sick :( Prayers are sent up for him :)

At 8:32 PM, Blogger Overwhelmed! said...

Thank goodness they worked for someone! :)

Sorry to everyone else that it's not working for. I don't know what else to modify.

It's still working for me now.

At 9:12 PM, Blogger Michelle said...
