It’s mid November and I’ve been a father for just over 4 months now and it’s been a pretty interesting few months with my wife and our daughter. It’s really interesting to see her grow and acquire and skills. My wife and I have also noticed that every few weeks her cry changes or she tries something new. This past week or so she learned to roll over from her back to her stomach. Before she was able to do this very infrequently but now she does it whenever she gets upset with something and of she’s on her back. She also does this curious squeak now when she’s happy which is pretty cool. In this age of technology you can bet that there are a a lot of pictures and videos being taken.
I have so many pictures of my daughter and my wife its really starting to fill up the hard drive. I might have to start making some DVD backups of the pictures soon just in case my double backup doesn’t work out. I really need to invest in a NAS so that I can just back up the NAS every once in a while and not my two computers or something. I think it would be neat to get it for Christmas or something but I don’t want to spend the money on it right now.
The great thing about my iPhone 4S is that I can upload my videos to YouTube in HD quality so at least I know those videos will be preserved. I should probably tell my wife to do the same thing so that we don’t lose the videos. I could start putting all of my daughters pictures online at Shutterfly or something. It will take a long time but at least I know they will be safe online somewhere and that I have a possibility of retrieving them if one of my computers decided to crash on me. What I really think would be awesome will be some sort of high capacity solid state drive so I can backup everything without fear of the drive failing since there are no moving parts. This way I can keep all my pictures and videos of my ever changing daughter safely.
I can’t wait to see what month 5 brings. Maybe she will do something interesting
Ike say her first word. Now that would be a cool Christmas gift.
