Do you take the time to take video?

by Lara I'm not great at remembering to take video of the kids, heck, some months I'm not good at remembering to take photos of the kids.  But every once in awhile, as I look back through the videos we HAVE taken I realize just what a wonder the videos are.

Memories

Videos are a great way to remember more than just what your kids looked like at that time in their lives.  The way they sounded, just how much they could talk or not talk, the excitement of learning to walk, etc.

It's so lovely to just look back at those times and remember

For Christmas Kiernan got a very funny/gross gift. I recorded us trying it out :)

Entertainment

As much as I love the videos for the value of wonderful memories I sometimes wonder if the bigger memories isn't the HOURS of entertainment we can have watching the videos again! The kids ADORE watching videos of themselves when they were younger!

Kiernan was an early talker - here he is at 13 months. I think he sounds clearer here than one of my 2.5 year olds ;)

How

A lot of smart phones can take videos - does yours? I have a flip camera which makes it very easy to take a short video and upload it without needing to download anything off cassette. Whatever way you use, just remember to capture the little moments. And share them - we'd love to see some of yours!
