I know other mamas can relate, I feel like I can never, ever document the girls enough. They change soooo quickly, way too quickly, it’s both amazing & heart-breaking all at the same time. I never want to forget all the little details — the freckles on their faces or the way their little curls, the way they say words and sing songs and the stories they tell — I know one day these memories will be some of the most treasured of my entire life and I want to make sure I have the photos & videos to go along with them.
I obviously take tons of pictures, and document some of their childhood on the blog or through pictures on my Instagram. But that really is only a very small part of it, I am intentional on what I share mainly since it’s not private, which I think about even more as they get older. I recently was introduced to the Lifetales app and am loving the idea of this as an additional way to document the girls and share with family & friends. Through Lifetales, you can easily share stories and experiences with anyone that you choose to, and also can easily download these later to save. Each story starts off private, and then you can choose who you want to send it to! I also love that each story can incorporate photos, video, text & audio. This app is FREE!!!! — and can be accessed here. I am super excited to start using it and challenge you to do the same!
And what would a post about documenting your kids be without documenting your kids?!! A couple from the other night, Waverly recently learned to ride her bike without training wheels and Avalon has figured out the balance bike she got for her birthday — they spend at least an hour a day riding down our new street together and then just love to play on the driveway. One of things I will forever remember from this summer!
Wishing you a very happy weekend full of sweet memories. XO
