From the first baby development video I ever watched to the first baby "how-to" book I read, it became very clear to me that babies are terrifically resilient little creatures.
Not that parents need manuals in video or boo-form to demonstrate how baby works, but like most 21st century parents, I craved information.
And now that I've been a dad for a couple of years, I feel a sense of pride knowing that I have hands on experience with babies. They're sturdy little beings, and I have witnessed the incredible amount of development that goes on throughout the different stages of a baby's first year. (Trust me. I have the photos, video and extensive journal entries to prove it.)
What separates us, of course, from other creatures -- along with our ability to diarize using different media -- is our big glorious brains.
If you're a baby video junky or if you want to learn more, tune into TVO's presentation of National Geographic's "The Science of Babies. It's an hour-long documentary that airs Saturday, March 15 at 7 PM.
I trust the National Geographic brand, so it promises to be an insightful doc.
