You know why we are always excited about baby videos? Because it is always a thrill to see what these tiny humans have in store for us! You can never predict what they will do, and that is so exciting! Like this video at the top of the page, for example.

The first few milestones in a baby’s life are huge for the parents and of course, they want to capture it all on camera, for posterity. It seems like in the “old days", when there were tapes and people had to plan carefully what they were going to record to keep or not, there were far bigger chance that you will actually capture the good stuff right on time.

Today, in the digital world, we can capture and record stuff to our heart’s content, but to little avail. Good thing we don’t have to keep those videos permanently, so we delete the stuff we do not like and try, try again.

Do you want to know what follows next for a baby like this and her peers?

A renowned pediatrician says that children begin to stand up by themselves without any support at 9-12 months. There are even fully healthy babies that begin to stand up later than their peers if they are calm by nature or still have an excess of the baby fat.

Even if the child learns how to get up, sitting back safely is not still in the digest repertoire. This is why babies use the opportunity to, when they finally managed to get up, to stay up as long as possible and then falls down bottom first on the floor tired and cranky. If you leave the child without any support at this phase, they will soon forget about their fatigue and repeat the process again and again.

After a while, the child soon learns to drop down gently from a standing position. Very soon the little one will see that he or she can make steps just for the sake of support. Gradually, the baby will let go of one hand and use the other only for support. This is how the baby learns to walk and graduates from a baby into a toddler.

When Sean McGrath's dad Colum asked him to go to the airport, the 12-year-old thought that he will just be sending his grandparents away for vacation in Spain. They've gathered in the parking lot in front of the airport and were about to grab the bags from the back of the car, when his Gran asked him to check their boarding passes from her mobile phone.

Dad Colum started recording, but the young man didn't suspect anything was wrong with that. He opens Gran's phone, looks for the airport app and opens it. “look into boarding passes” says Gran and he does. As he swipes to check, he finds his grandpa's pass, then his grandmas. It suddenly dawned on him, as he found a third pass on the app with his name on it – he will be joining his grandma and grandpa on a spring vacation in Spain!

Needless to say, there were tears of joy involved. That is right – Sean will be leaving cloudy County Limerick from Shannon Airport for a couple of weeks of frolicking in the Spanish sun!

The boy can't believe his eyes! His luggage has been packed, dad has got his passport, all he has to do now and hug everyone tightly and go off and have a great time!
