When Alice was born, I worried she would think she was a robot because she had so few baby pictures (compared with Elliot, at least). Well, Lucy may fare even worse — given how hectic our home life has become.
But I did make a video of Lucy's homecoming, so she'll always know how thrilled we were to meet her the first time.
My advice to new parents: Take video of your kids! You don't have to edit the footage, and you certainly don't have to post it online. But record these moments. (I encounter a surprising number of parents who take lots of pictures but no video.)
I can't even remember what Elliot or Alice were like two weeks ago, let alone two years. It's nice to be able to take a trip back in time whenever I want to.
