A Year in the Life of Spud

15 seconds of video per day times 365 days equals 1 hour of tape.

I can't believe it but we actually pulled it off. We video'd spud everyday of his first year and then I spent about a year's worth of spare time editing it together. Okay, some days had better footage than others and so some days got 30 secs and some none.

In the end, we have 60 minutes of the little guy gradually growing, seconds at a time. The first time he rolled over. His first solid food. You know the drill. I'm not going to lie to you, it's not super riveting for the average person. It's really a video only a parent could love and it wouldn't be fair to show it to anyone other than perhaps highly doting grandparents. But I enjoy it a lot. It's fun to relive those days. I miss them. I hope spud will enjoy it one day too.
