Here you'll find current musings, as well as the archives from two blogs of yesteryear: YoungMarriedMom and What I Learned While Writing a Novel. Please comment and share. We love well when we are in conversation with one another.
When Jacob was a little boy–okay, when Jacob was a littler boy–John was all about getting a handheld video camera. I was on board, but not as stoked as he was. I know I look back at photos, but I wasn’t sure I’d look back at videos, and I thought we might just eat up a lot of hard drive space.
In time, I’ve come to appreciate having a video camera on hand. We’ve captured giggles, dances, and all kinds of things in between. As Jacob grows and his coos turn into babbles and soon into words, I know I’ll later appreciate these couple of minutes here and there of his babyhood.
Probably thirty to forty percent of the photos I take of Jacob are pictures of him grabbing at the camera. While the regular, still digital camera is a little too fragile for his less-than-gentle touch, the video camera seemed like it would stand up to his constant turning and occasional biting. So I made my little boy’s dream come true. I handed him the camera and pressed “record.” Here’s what he wanted to share with the world.
If you get motion sick, I wouldn’t recommend that you hit play. If not, enjoy!
