If a photograph says a thousand words, what does a video say?
I’ve been looking through some old photos and videos and thought it would be fun to show two videos from exactly one year a part. Its turned out to be a fun little project with some pretty significant developmental skills being displayed. What you’ll see is that a lot can change in a year, especially that first year.
So here it is… the first video was shot on November 18th, 2011 and it captures the developing skill of tummy time and as you’ll see it is somewhat successful and then Mason slowly falls to the left. Even though he has changed so much, I remember taking this one like it was only yesterday.

Our latest video was filmed on November 18th, 2012 and features Mason’s love of food, his immediate frustration of not getting the carrot on his fork, and the pure joy of eating (almost) without assistance. As all successes should be marked, this video ends with a couple of high fives and smiles.

My favorite moments in that video are at 17 seconds and 30 Mason is a very expressive kid (see above video at 17, 30, and 53 seconds) and this next one shows more of those qualities. You’ll see that he’s recently figured out how to manipulate his eyebrows to give them most dramatic expressions. It starts out with his “Oooooo” face from our choo-choo train conversation and then he decides to try to climb into his little chair without help. He figures it out and you’ll get to see his excitement of being a ‘rockin baby’. He’s a cool kid.
