Get Out Your Tissues
now that we've all had a good cry, let's talk about how incredible this is. it's brilliant! my iphone and computer are full of pictures and videos of our most memorable "evie" moments, and up until now i've been wondering what to do with them. should i put them on a cd that we'll eventually lose or scratch? or save them to a bulky external hard drive that we'll have to keep safe for years until evie is interested in seeing them? should i print every picture and put them all in a scrapbook? (i've been making some pretty great shutterfly photo books, but that doesn't help my video dilemma.)
i was stumped, but now i'm inspired. through email, jeff and i could send our favorite videos to our kids, plus we could write little stories and notes to them, and perhaps the grandparents could do the same. maybe i'd send this one of evie learning the "magic words":
i've heard you can't actually create an email account for your baby—or anyone under age thirteen—so we'd have to open the account under one of our names and give it to evie as a gift when she's old enough.
what do you think of the idea? how do you preserve your favorite memories and plan to share them with your kids?
