William: Ten Months

Another big day today: William is ten months old! He's made a lot of advancements this month, making a swift transition out of the baby stage.

William is ten months old!

William is still a smiley baby, and just as unsmiley when he gets tired about an hour before bedtime. He's been saying a lot more ma-ma-ma and da-da-da (with additional prompting by his big sister), and his newest thing is waving bye bye.

He's also more active than ever. He's been crawling steadily, and has gone from standing up against almost anything to scooting along the crib, couch, and even pushing around the toy piano. At this rate, we are wondering if he'll be walking by his first birthday.

Last but not least, he's reached an impressive 22 pounds; A solid baby!

Watch for his eleven month post in February, and that all important milestone, one year in March!

Career Update: Jan 2011

I don't often talk about work here, but periodically things change and like all other major life events, I want to note it here.

Last Friday, I was let go from my job. Over the space of a few years, the amount of work for my project was declining, and after attempting to work other positions, it was simply time to move me on to my next adventure. We parted on good terms, and I am very pleased about the accomplishments I had during my four years there.

However, it's time to embark on the next phase of my career, and all I need to do is figure out what that is. I'm taking a couple of days to rest, consider my options, and take care of a few things that I haven't been able to get to.

Most likely, I'll be looking at many options. Getting a new job in an interesting position is always a possibility, and I also want to pursue some new iPhone development projects, as well as other contract and freelance jobs.

Thank you all for your support over the last number of years and in the future. We are all doing well, and look forward to whatever lies ahead for us.

The Tale of Mr. Brown

A promotional video was just released for a product I have been working on for almost four years. It's the latest in a series of product videos with a common theme, and while I am slightly biased, I think it's the best thus far. Our creative guys are amazing and I am totally impressed by their ability to combine artistic talent, writing, humour, and product information.


Update, August 15, 2011: Video has been removed from YouTube. Not sure why, as the other ones still remain. Sorry, and thanks to those who have viewed it in the past. If it ever comes back online, I'll re-add it.
