Contest Entry: JVC HD Camcorder Giveaway

Bertrand wants a camcorder so he can be a star!

Kirstin at An Ordinary Life Blog posted a JVC HD Camcorder Review and Giveaway! The JVC Everio GZ-HD320 120GB High-Def Camcorder is a pretty sweet camcorder. We have been desperately wanting a camcorder to record chunks of Bertrand's life and baby bucket list, so hopefully we can win one!

First of all, (as anyone who reads this blog knows) why we think we should win: Even though he just turned 15 months old, Bertrand's metabolic disorder makes it so he'll probably only live to age 3. We want to capture the few remaining, precious moments we can.

Next, I am supposed to share parts of B's story. After an uneventful pregnancy, Bertrand spent the first few days of his life in the NICU. Since then he has experienced frustration and global developmental delays. The recent discovery of oligosaccharide bands in his urine has indicated one of two possibilities: a lysosomal storage disease or a mitochodrial mutation. Both are fatal.

I guess this isn't the cutest baby story, but he IS the cutest baby! ;) Wish us luck with the contest and with the visit to Dr. Longo's office later today!
