What we have as childhood memoirs sure can tell the era we were born.  For instance, I have a baby book with photos (not as many as my sister, because she was the first child).  My daughter has a baby book of photos, but I also had her birth videotaped by a friend, but that was unheard of in the early 90's and some people thought I was nuts.  Then came digital photography and some pictures were printed, most remained on CD's or stored on a computer.  The latest and greatest way to capture those once in a lifetime memories of having a child is with a Video Story.
