one second every day

November 27, 2015

When Wren was eight weeks old, I discovered 1 Second Everyday. As the name implies, this app allows you to shoot one second of video every day and then stitches it all up into one continuous film — a compilation of the beautiful, ordinary, funny (August 21st gets me every time), playful and tiny magical moments that make up a life.

So I decided to take a video of Wren every day from then on, to start collecting memories, not only for myself, but for her. Luckily, we had tons of footage leading up to the 8-week mark so we were able to back-track a bit.

These are the little seconds I want to remember about this time with her. If I had to use two words to describe Wren, they would be “strong-willed” and “happy”. I think I’ve managed to capture the latter quite easily over the past five months. I hope this little film makes you happy too.

Happy “birthday” Wren. And happy Friday everyone.
