As your baby grows up he/she will show a lot of changes in his/her behaviour, attitude, development and movements. You would probably want to hold on to these milestones forever. Technology has advanced a lot and you have more means of capturing every milestone he/she reaches.
Your cell phone can be the best device to capture those memories. You can take photos and videos on your phone. As babies are always trying to move, you have to capture their photographs keeping still as much as possible. Further, you can always edit those photographs by dropping them into some photo-editing software that are widely available on the internet.
A good camera is also another way to freeze a moment. Here again, a camera with fast shutter speed is advised so that it can capture a precious moment while your baby is moving. These days, a camera often comes with built in Wi-Fi. You can directly back up the photos taken with those cameras without connecting to a computer.
If you want to move another step ahead, capturing videos is also a great idea. Instead of freezing moments with a photograph, you can record your baby’s movements, voices, expressions, gestures. You can record your baby’s conversations with you or any other activities and see them again and again.
If you do not have a video recorder, you can use the audio recorder in your phone to preserve the voice of your baby. With an audio recorder you can also keep track of your baby’s improving language skills and changing voice.
You can write a blog to keep a record of your baby’s developments and milestones. Blogging sites like Blogger, WordPress are quite easy to access. You can always post new updates and edit the earlier posts in these websites. It is a good medium where you can add your ideas and perceptions about your baby’s growth and share these memories and milestones with your family and friends.
You can make digital photo books from various websites online, or you can buy albums separately and put all the memorable photographs of your baby in those albums.
It is important to keep all the digital memories like photos, videos and audios safe. Try to back up regularly all that you record. Using cloud storage for back up is a good idea. You can also store them in DVDs or in portable flash drives so that none of these priceless moments are ever lost.
