I am so mad at myself. Today, a co-worker showed up at work with her 1 year old son. So, I took advantage of the occasion to snap some pictures of him as he crawled around the office. What a little tiger, he loved crawling everywhere. Anyhow, I noticed that he liked to grab onto things and then hoist himself up on his feet. He'd stand there, then drop back down to crawl again.

Suddenly, he seemed uninterested in going back down on his hands and knees. That's when his mother said, "Oh my goodness, is he going to walk? He has never even attempted to walk until now!"

Dangit! Here I am, lying on the floor in front of this boy, and he's going to walk, and I cannot figure out how to turn on the video! Sure, it's simple now that I'm out of the heat of the moment, just press that red button. But at the time, and because I never ever use video nor have I cared about it, I couldn't figure it out with any degree of confidence. I kept thinking that maybe I should hit the Live View switch, but then I realized that this wouldn't initiate video, and I was afraid do to anything else for fear that I would render the camera in a state where I couldn't continue to record this big event. So I just kept shooting instead.

Here's little Connor taking his first steps in life:



I didn't have the heart to tell his mother that my camera is capable of recording this major milestone in video. In fact, I'll never tell
