Father records infant son for a second each day

(CBS News) While I don't have the personal frame of reference to back this up, I feel like people can be pretty funny after they have a child. I've seen everything from the bronzing of first shoes, to jars of baby teeth, childhood trophy collections and much more. And while I have mixed feelings about some methods, this particular way of making a time period more permanent is one I can totally get behind. Watch as a baby is recorded for one second each day over a year above.

The endearing project that immortalizes a toddler's very first year of life was posted on Vimeo by Sam Christopher Cornwell who writes about the background:

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.
Just going to throw out now that I'm totally going to rip this off if/when I have a child. (Both fingers crossed that will still happen!) A big triple-rainbow salute of artistic and amazing parenting goes out to Sam and his wife from all of us here at The Feed for this wonderful project!
