At long last I have managed to transfer all our old VHS videos onto DVD. Worried that all those precious memories of our boy would be lost if I didn’t get my act together, I found a local company who did it all for me. Now Dougie and I are going all soft looking at our wee lad and embarrassing him at every opportunity.
At present I haven’t got the software (or intelligence, for that matter) to transfer some of the DVDs to the computer so I can download extracts. Tips please would be welcome. In the meantime, I have recorded a snippet from the DVD by holding my camera in front of the laptop!!
The resulting video below shows Rory aged 2 (a couple of months off 3 years of age), completing a jigsaw. Rory used to baffle us with his ability to do puzzles: his spatial awareness seemed extraordinary but then we had no other children to compare him to. The puzzle in the video was a 100-piece Map of the World jigsaw and he completed it unaided, despite having a very runny nose and a troublesome sock.
Have a look and let me know what you think. Is this unusual?
