Vlogging with my toddler – 2 years 7 months update

It is time for another Leo update. I don’t know how these months keep passing by so quickly. Time really needs to slow down a bit otherwise Leo will be off at university and I will be an old lady before I know it!

A few weeks ago I decided to start vlogging and so far I have only published one video. I thought it would make a nice change to do Leo’s monthly update in vlog form, featuring the boy himself and it gives me a good excuse to up my vlogging game,

I love writing my monthly Leo updates as it is a way of recording and remembering everything we have been up to and sharing any milestones he has reached during the month. Although writing everything down is a good way to cherish the memories, words can never truly capture what someone is really like. Video is the perfect way to make sure I never forget the sound of Leo’s cute little voice or his high pitched giggle, his little facial expressions and mannerisms are all there for me to see and look back on. When he is a grumpy teenager I can show him these videos, he will be embarrassed probably but they will show that he was a little cutie (once upon a time!). 

Vlogging with Leo was fun and he really enjoyed showing off for the camera. I wouldn’t recommend it if you want to sit and chat without any distractions though. I found it very hard to concentrate by the end!
So here is Leo’s 2 year and 7 month update and his YouTube debut. I hope you enjoy watching.

Do you like to keep regular updates on your little ones development? How do you think Leo did on his first ever vlog? He got a bit bored by the end but I think he enjoyed being in front of the camera, he has definitely inherited his Daddy’s confidence.

    Thanks. Yea, I think a video will definitely show it better than words, will be better to show how his speech etc has progressed xx

    BB gets quite camera shy so has only been in one of my vlogs so far – Little B on the other hand loves being the centre of attention! #picknmix

    Oh what a cutie he is! I think the vlogging idea of keeping a diary of his childhood idea is brilliant. My two love watching back videos of themselves now and I would love it if there were videos of me as a child so hopefully I can prevent them finding and destroying them in the awkward teenage years and they will appreciate them when they are older! Thanks for linking up! #bigpinklink

    That is such a good idea! I am considering starting vlogging. He seems like such a happy chap. I'm not sure I'd get my baby in the vlog at the moment but it might be something I'd try too! How have you found started vlogging to be? #bigpinklink

    Ohh I will need to check our your YouTube channel. Little B sounds like Leo, he loves being in front of the camera xx

    Aww thank you 🙂 xx

    It's not as scary as you think, I'm not very Co fudent but weirdly I love vlogging. Aww yes monthly updates with a newborn would be so exciting to write xx

  12. March 24, 2016 / 7:54 pm

    Aww thank you, I think Leo makes a much better vlogger than me haha xx

  13. March 24, 2016 / 7:56 pm

    Haha, yeah I'm not sure if Leo will appreciate these video's when he's a teenager! I know, I wish there were videos of me as a toddler that I could watch back now xx

    You should go for it!So far I have only made 2 blogs but I'm loving it. I am doing it for myself as a way of building up my confidence, u don't even look at my YouTube stats or promote my channel. For now I am doing it just for me and have people watch and enjoy it then that's just a lovely added bonus. If you're considering it I would say just go for it, it's fun xx

    Oh how cute is your son!! I also think that having a video of your kids updates is such a lovely way to remember how they were at that time. I have also done updates with Sienna before she turned one and I love watching them back every now and then. It is very hard to film with kids, isn't it? lol Lovely video. Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS, 🙂 xx

    Ahh what a great video Wendy! Leo is so cute! I love that you got him involved in his 2yrs and 7 months update. He's a real natural infront of the camera! #KCACOLS
