Welcome to Risky Baby Business here at More Cowbell. We talk about moms and babies every Saturday over here, particularly those of the high-risk variety. If you want to catch up on the previous posts in this series, click here.
As parents, one of the things my hubby and I would go back and do differently is record our baby’s daily moments.
Sure, we have snippets here and there, but there are a million things we missed getting on video and the older our daughter gets the more we regret it.
I think the final straw for this was when some friends offered to record her baptism and accidentally overwrote the tape. To this day, it makes me physically ill to think of all the photos and moments from that day that were lost.
I just came across the video below the other day and it’s amazing.
The mother shot video of her daughter, Lotte, every week for the first 12 years of her life and then spliced a few seconds at a time together. The result is this video that runs under three minutes.
Do you videotape the important moments in your life or do you rely on photographs? Are there things you wish you’d done to organize your memories better? Or special ways that you’ve gathered your memories that you’d like to share? Enquiring minds love to know these things here at More Cowbell!
