One Second Every Day

Finn at 11 Months


Like any mom, I take way too many photos of my kid! I started a Dropbox folder for Finn right around the time he turned six months old and my phone wouldn’t take any more pictures. I even save the bad photos, and every one from the series of 14 it took to get the best picture. I can’t erase them!

Right around the time Finn was born I discovered the app called “1 Second Every Day”. The premise was simple – capture one second of your life every day for a year. I downloaded it and quickly started adding photos and videos. Like any project that lasts an entire year, my focus turned elsewhere and my “1 Second Every Day” became a few seconds a week. After a while, I forgot about it completely.

However, the best part of the app is that you can go back and fill in the gaps when you have them! I decided better late than never and spent the last few days doing just that. The final video isn’t a complete year, but it’s pretty close. And I couldn’t have started it at a better time. Finn grew so much in his first year and to be transported back to when he was a few months old and watch our journey over the first year is so fun! Maybe I’ll do it for his second year as well – and at this rate I’ll post it on the blog right around his fourth birthday. HA!
