You all have probably noticed that when Fox grows up, he won’t lack on having childhood pictures of himself. My friends often joke that he is the most photographed child in the world and although I’ve been trying to scale back on photos (it was so much easier when he was little and couldn’t run away…ha), that is probably still true.
While he has tens of thousands of pictures of him, Katie and I are trying to do a better job of taking videos of him. And by videos I mean more than those 10 second clips we capture on our phones.
I remember three years ago, before I got pregnant, I thought it would be so cool to document our IVF process, the pregnancy and of course, Fox as a newborn. But the idea intimidated me, I didn’t feel comfortable in front of a camera, I had no idea how to edit videos and the whole idea was just daunting. So I didn’t. And now I regret it. That’s how it always goes, right?
While I still don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera and have very limited editing skills, I feel like having these videos in the end is worth overcoming these obstacles.
So that’s what I’m going to do. I want to document our family and life in more than just pictures, because when I’m old and grey (more than I am already…ha), I know I will love being able to look back at these and see two year old Fox running around.
And I will probably cry and wish to go back in time and spend one more day with this crazy, sweet and adorable toddler who keeps us on our toes!
I know I have lots to learn, I know we are not perfect, but this is us.
