12 Yrs in 2.45 Mins: the Miracle of Growing Up

With the day-to-day, day-after-day immersion of being a mom, sometimes it’s hard to see parenting a baby or toddler for what it really is: helping a LO grow up. This video puts it all in perspective. Filmmaker Frans Hoffmeester shot video of his daughter every week from birth and created a time-lapse video that crams 12 years of growing and changing and staying the same into 2.45 minutes, and shows how a crying, spit-up prone infant becomes a talkative young woman in what feels like a flash.
