Hi there. I’ll bet you wanted to know this week’s Awesomest Mommy Thing, didn’t you? If this video — a gorgeous weekly chronicle of baby Lotte’s evolution from birth to age 12 — doesn’t make you:
1) appreciate your kids even more than you did yesterday,
2) wish you had taken way more baby pictures,
then I don’t know what will. Other responses below.

Lotte, Birth To Age 12 <–this is the video link!
Give it a rest. Flipping every time you see a cute baby on YouTube? Stop it. Right now.

Dear Parents Who Think Ahead,
I hate you. No, wait. I love you. But I hate that you have 4,388 photos of your baby, all neatly catalogued and
stored in fuchsia shoebox storage containers that line the top shelf of your walk-in closet (a closet the size of Rhode Island, I might add, which is reason enough for envy). Plus you can spell fuchsia without Googling it.
lease stop posting awesome videos of your children (videos that you have been planning for TWELVE YEARS, let’s be real here) that make the rest of us look bad. I’ll bet you never dropped your iPhone in the toilet either. And you have a clean house.
The Rest of Us.
Father Frans Hofmeester filmed his daughter Lotte weekly for twelve years, then edited the whole thing. Lotte talks a lot. And her hair changes frequently. I adore the whole thing. You?
