KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Capturing some of life's most precious moments is about to get easier. A local start-up has come up with a way to make sure you don't forget the adorable things your little ones say.
Not only will the Little Hoots app allow you to capture the cute and clever things from out of the mouth of babes, but it also allows you to turn those phrases into precious keepsakes.
"Whenever you can create any kind of keepsake or memory that allows you to reminisce and go back, I think it reminds us of all the blessings in our lives and it helps us reconnect in a new way with our loved ones,” Lacey Ellis, founder and CEO of Little Hoots, said.
Ellis came up with the idea after brainstorming ways to remember the adorable things her young son would say.
"As soon as he'd say them, we're on the road or something, and he'd say it and I'd think I'm going to forget that," Ellis said.
What mother would ever want to forget her kid saying something like, "Mommy, look! The moon is on."? Director of Project Management Stephanie Lashley said the app has voice recognition and will be simple to use.
"It will be easy to just hit a button and capture that funny quote right on the go and then archive it into a memory tile and turn it into something beautiful," Lashley said.
The app will be offered for free but it takes money to build. This project is only partially funded, which is why Little Hoots launched an online fundraising campaign. There are perks for every contribution. The community has responded with more than $2,000 in contributions so far. You can learn more about it by clicking on this link.
