VIDEO: Tai Shan's First Birthday

Picture originally uploaded by somesai.

And what a party!

Great coverage from the Washington Post, as always.  The video is in the middle of the page, along with a gallery of photos.

Here's a link to the ongoing Special Report they continuously add to- video, slideshows, articles- tons of gold there!

Lastly, check out the video and slideshows from nbc4 in Washington, DC- they're in the middle right-side of the page.

And no, we won't talk about his second birthday for a long while- that will be difficult to write about.

More pictures of Tai's party from somesai, of course.  And more about somesai in a moment!

"The panda cub turned 8 months old Thursday [March 9th]. He looked like a handful for his mom Friday, following her around and badgering her until she relented and gave him a big hug."

Where is Drudge with that fucking siren!?! Okay, everyone: Deep breath. The panda cam (at Animal Planet, where they don't LIMIT YOU to 15 minutes like some Zoos I know) is down. What is Butterstick doing? We don't know! Is he tumbling down his rock pile? Contemplating his paws? Humping the cage bars? Possibly pushing cute beyond previously known boundaries?
