At this stage our kids are so trained, they often hold their breath during big moments as we scramble for our digital cameras and video. We are certain we can’t live without that first ‘roll over’, those first steps, first words, first recital and first day of school, but it is truly the unscripted moments, the ones we catch just because we were paying attention, that will be the ones we treasure most.
