Our family is growing in many ways... Growing in numbers, knowledge, parenting skills, growing in love, in our faith, growing our culinary skills (if you can call it that), growing without gluten (some of us), growing green...........

Does anyone know of some great sites where we can upload video clips to share with family? Places where we can limit viewing to people we share the videos/link/etc. I have uploaded some to youtube and can have as private, but this means only 25 people that I invite are allowed to see my videos. Plus, they have to have a youtube acct. That's another annoyance - how about a place where they don't have to have an account? Any tips would be great! We would love to be sharing more videos with some of our friends and family that aren't nearby (more than 25 of them, too)!

Enjoy these videos!! They're all really short, so it isn't as bad as it looks!

Aiden was just about to turn 5 months old in this clip. He's sitting up and finally able to grab the butterflies on his play gym. He thought they might taste yummy. ;) I especially love the sigh at the end. He does that all the time, and it's just as adorable each time.

Here Aiden (5 months) spent more than five minutes spinning this frog over and over. It was too cute. He starts to get mad at it once when it doesn't turn just like he wanted.(I didn't tape five minutes, though.) ;)

This was taken on Aiden's six-month birthday. These are two of his most favorite things - making that "brrrrr" sound and bouncing up and down - which he does just about anytime his feet touch something - including when he's nursing and his feet touch the side of the chair. I won't be taping that, though... ;)

Valentine's 2009, Aiden is just over 6 months old. He falls asleep usually by playing with his feet - sometimes it keeps him up, though! We can't put him to bed with socks on - or they'll be pulled off, chewed on, then strewn about! Once he rolls to the side - that's how you know he's actually falling asleep. It's a matter of seconds until he's out once he does that!

And please let me know of any good websites for videos! Thanks a bunch!

Can't view the vidoes they are 'private' =). I use google to share videos. I havn't done it in a while but I think I can make them private and send links to people.

I found a site though another blog I read called vimeo.com I didn't look into it too much but maybe they can do what you want.
