If you are particular about the moments you want to indulge in, you’re probably the parent who tends to plan out everything for your child way beforehand. You most probably love to focus on the tiniest details while preparing your little one’s wardrobe, room, along with their first stages of life. One way to really freeze the moment in time is a video or a photograph.
These days your attention merely revolves around your child – their food, their frequent cries, changing them, caring for them. It’s a lot – we know. The funny thing however is that you realize the worth of those moments just after these days have passed. Currently, with too much happening around you find yourself in a constant hurry and therefore miss out on these core memories. The reason why you should take a moment to capture all that is around you is to cherish them later on. These are the priceless times you share with your child. This will turn into the bond you develop during this journey of parenthood. This is what will help both you and your child grow and learn, and later in life you will be able to look back on these as your fondest memories.
It’s times like these that you hold close to your heart. You watch your loved ones all excited to be part of such a vital occasion in your life. All of them wanting to be associated with the joy and love that your child has brought to your family. Everyone wants to see the child and attribute his/her features to someone in the family, the cousins and aunts ready with their cameras to capture the cutest pictures, and your child slowly learning to recognize the faces of those who he will soon learn to call “family”. It is a wholesome feeling!
It’s the tiniest details that you learn to appreciate, they become a part of the moments you never want to forget. It’s the little fingers moving to hide their face with their little palms, the cute pout while being asleep, the soft eye blinking smile, the morning stretches with their hands up in the air, the messy hair, the late sleepless nights, the loud cries, the smell of baby powder and all the cuddles. You start recognizing and appreciating smallest things. These are the days you’ll never forget.
It is said Forever is composed of NOWS and all parents who want to treasure those believe in living in those moments to the fullest while capturing them to revisit those memories in the future.
It is human nature to reminisce about the past. Pictures from the past would not only be reminiscent for you as a parent but also help refresh your child’s childhood memories. It is a reminder to them of the love you have for them in the moment that you captured the picture. It is a proof of growth, affection and some of your fondest memories.
This practice not only allows the child to know more about themselves but more about their extended family too if this is a passed down tradition in your family. Through this your child can get to know and see their grandparents, and other members of the family and the bond they shared
Today in a digital era everything is so handy, preserving memories are easier than ever. Save it for your child and for their generation.
