I was taking Milo’s 8 month photo’s today and couldn’t resist sharing this with you guys. I thought rather than just post a random picture I’d take the opportunity to shamelessly promote my baby blog/YouTube channel. Most of you are aware I do the beauty and the vlogs etc but I’m always surprised when people ask to see more of Milo.. he has a whole host of videos online.. I obviously just haven’t mentioned them enough. Even as a parent I hate other peoples kids being shoved down my throat (weird visual) so I wanted to keep all that stuff totally separate but it seems I’ve done it so well seems that it’s practically a secret! For those who don’t know I have an almost 7 year old (eek) daughter too but as she’s getting older I’m shielding her more from my internet hobby. I’m sure there are people out there that speculate I am favouring Milo but that’s not the case at all, he’s baby and she’s at the age where she understands everything and the last thing I want is her videoing herself and putting it online. It’s that awkward age between child and teen that’s very difficult to pinpoint as a parent but she’s already growing up so fast, I don’t want to speed it up. Anyway.. I will still film family holiday vlogs etc but I thought I’d give a brief explanation as to why Milo features more heavily.
I blogged all through my struggle to conceive my second baby as well as my pregnancy, his arrival and his month by month updates. I also try to capture little bits of personality here and there to share with you and for use to look back on. I had a video camera when Ella was a baby but I have no way of watching/transferring the discs yet.. as soon as I have I will edit some bits of her too. YouTube is an amazing tool really, I have home movies of me when I was a child but if the tapes are lost they’re gone forever. YouTube enables us to keep memories for generations regardless of where we are in the world.
I found this post in my drafts and most of the links are no longer relevant as I don’t update my Baby Blog or channel anymore as of his 12th month (in fact I may have missed that on his blog – oops) but it seemed so relevant to recent comments regarding Ella not featuring in vlogs as much that I thought I would post it. Also if you’re pregnant, trying for a baby or have a newborn you may find some interesting stuff over there so why not take a peek?
