Father Captures Baby’s First Year in a Unique and Tear-jerking Way [VIDEO]

My daughter’s first birthday is approaching in less than a month and I am full of mixed emotions. I’m so happy that she is growing and thriving but I’m sad that my baby is growing up. I saw a diaper commercial once that said, “You’ll have a child for forever, but a baby for only a year.” That commercial puts a knot in my stomach because I love having a baby in my life. I remember my mom telling me to stop growing up and I’d innocently answer, “I can’t help it; I have to grow up!” Now, I’m the one telling my baby to stay little.

One father decided to capture his son’s first year in a unique way.

“Meet our son Indigo who was born on the 9th July 2012. From that day my wife and I videoed Indigo at least once a day, every day up to a year old. For his first birthday we’ve spent some time putting together a video of his entire first year. He doesn’t quite appreciate it yet, but we hope that in a few years he will.

MUSIC: Thanks to Mychael Danna and Devotchka for use of “The Winner Is” music from the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack.”

Personally, I love this because it captures all those seemingly mundane moments that you’ll never get back. So much happens in that first year and it’s a beautiful process that these parents can relive over and over again. If you are having a child, consider investing the time to do this too.
