Dad discovers video of his 2-year-old daughter taking her first selfie

YOU didn’t learn how to take a selfie this early in life.

As newborn babies enter a society that is increasingly wired and dependent on digital communication, their exposure to such electronic marvels is happening earlier and earlier.

YouTube user “wosd’s channel” discovered a remarkable example of this technological revolution when he found a video on his phone that showed his 2-year-old daughter Lyla—who likely hasn’t even been potty-trained yet—learning how to take a selfie.

(Sorry, this embed was not found.)

While Lyla’s selfie skills are no doubt commendable, she has a lot to learn about the horror of vertical video.

It’s only a matter of time before we see unborn fetuses perform their own selfies, putting sonogram technicians all over the world out of work.
