My dad is our family’s great memory keeper. Growing up we had tons of albums that were bursting with pics, ticket stubs,maps, and other memorabilia from all the things we did together. Whenever we had pictures developed we would always buy those Kodak brown albums (remember those?!) We had so many that when my mom lined them up in our bookshelves they looked like encyclopedias. His love of recording everything and anything has gloriously spilled on to his grandkids and since we still live with our parents, Noah and David are the main stars of his hobby (well one of his hobbies). My dad is a techie. Growing up he had always been interested in gadgets and technology, I guess I could peg him as an early adopter hehe. Right now he’s our great torrent downloader. I ask TV shows from him and he leaves his laptop on the entire day so that him and my mom could watch their shows at night. He also has an Instagram, a Vine, a Facebook, and a Youtube account.
When David was born, he recorded a lot of videos, which I still go back to every now and then.
I wanted to do just one post about TechieLolo but I found that I couldn’t. Those Kodak albums have now turned into hours of videos and pics in all his social media accounts (baka pwede na syang maging SoLolo? haha) So I’m breaking it into two parts and I’m starting off with his youtube account.
Here’s his first video of David at 18 days old. Dad is talking at the background and lovingly playing with his apo:
Of course Noah has his own videos too. Here’s the first video recording my dad made of Noah. Oh my heart. He’s so tiny but oh so spunky! Look at those legs kicking! Noah was always in odd positions in his isolette at the NICU because he was always moving!
My dad hasn’t updated his Youtube account in a while because he now prefers IG video or sometimes he would just upload his recordings directly onto Facebook. His entire account is here.
Part 2 would be haaaaard. I will attempt to post a couple of my all time favorite pics of his apos from his IG account. He recently just made his account public and he follows just one person – my mom. Ang taray haha 😀 But if you look at his feed, majority of the pics are of David and Noah 🙂 I hashtagged some of the pics with #techielolo, so you can look for the hashtag in IG and find his account haha.
For now I leave you with this vid of my dad, Noah and David 🙂 TechieLolo and his boys 🙂
I love you #TechieLolo!!
