Don't worry. None of this blood is mine.

Shakes’ Third Year (and a Family Announcement)

This is probably the last of the annual videos for Shakes to look back on one day and hate me for. I’d always planned to do three – not just for him, but for distant friends and family, too – so here’s (probably) the last. I know I wouldn’t want my entire growing-up reduced into bitesize chunks on my dad’s blog (or, in fact, anywhere…) so I don’t want to inflict it on the beloved heir, either.

As with the first and second years, the usual rules apply. Feel free to give it a miss if you have zero interest in the Dembski-Bowden clan. No harm, no foul. You don’t force-feed me videos of your kids, after all. It’s only fair if you ignore mine, too. I still love y’all.

Allies of the family, take note: there’s a big announcement in this one.

  2. Congrats on the success of another round of procreation. May your impending son/daughter be just as much, if not more, of a handful than young Alexander. Just, maybe leave off on dedicating any books until after the little treasure is freed from the flesh-oven and delivered unto the world.

    Hope you guys have a good day.

  4. congrates on the new baby!

    I would have loved if my parents did this once a year! If you don’t share it at least when he is 18 you could put them all together what an awesome thing to have!

  5. Congratulations!!! Your baby is going to crawl less this time around and be prepared for the dreaded Double Tantrum, but something tells me you two are well prepared and are going to love this baby as much as Alex.

  6. Your video is apparently unviewable in Canada due to copyright. Are you licensing Shakes out now? If so… Who’s your agent. My kids need to get cut in on that cheddar.

    • YouTube said so, too. I think it hates Feeder.
