Notorious B.I.G. and the baby

Well, we just hit 1,000,000 views on Youtube!

My wife and I thought some of you might be interested in some things that have been going on:

We've been in touch with the parents of the videos Charlie Bit My Finger, Talking Twins, and Baby Laughing at Ripping Paper.  They've been really helpful in giving us viral video advice.  For example, getting another email account.  I've received over 1,000 emails due to Youtube comments!

Most comments have been kind, and sweet.  We've enjoyed reading the stories of how others have calmed down their children, or how they were calmed down when they were babies.

There have been some cruel and racist comments.  We don't respond to them, but these comments are so rare compared to the positive ones.

Rachel, my daughter in the video, thinks the video is of Jason, her younger brother.  And we're fine with that!

We've been in touch with Jimmy Kimmel, Good Morning America, and other news organizations as well.  LeBron James and Alyssa Milano have "tweeted" the video and possibly others.  I tried signing up for Twitter and "tweeting" but realized quickly I have no idea what I'm doing!

My wife and family have been saintly.  One of the best things about this was the fact that I've touched base with family that I typically wouldn't see unless there was a wedding or a funeral.  It has been great catching up with them.

My wife and I are glad you've enjoyed the video! 

Take care,
