I try to take a lot of videos of the girls, with the iPhone it’s so easy to get the camera rolling its a shame not to. I defiantly did not take enough videos the first few months. Between the diaper changes, hour long feedings every three hours and trying to take care of my self there wasn’t much time or energy left for sitting down and filming, sleeping, crying or staring into nothing babies. If you are a new mom or expecting to be in the future make sure you enlist someone to film you doing the things you do a million times with your baby, playing on the floor, snuggling on the couch, changing a diaper, even breastfeeding. There is a way to film this while keeping the film G rated, for example from across the room or from behind you so you can only see you kissing babies head. I wish I had more video of me taking care of the girls in those first few weeks but there are years of movies to be made. I don’t always post the videos on the blog but lately I have been adding them to you tube. Here are some of my favorites from my youtube selection, but if you click on my YouTube user name you can see all my videos of the girls.
This is Talia practicing running, laying down.

When the girls bump or scratch each other I don’t get too crazy about it, but when it come to eyes, there is no messing around.
There are a few more over on you tube, which one is your favorite?
I read somewhere that it’s good to say the date while filming a home movie because years from now those watching may not know where and when the Video was shot. I try to do this, but I hate the way I sound on camera, any one have any tips on how to like my recorded voice better?
