An incredible 14 years in the making, this viral video shows Lotte Hofmeester grow from a baby to a beautiful teen in a mere 4 minutes and five seconds.
Lotte’s father, Frans Hofmeester, started taking video of his daughter as soon as she was born on October 28, 1999. “She was changing at such a rapid pace, that I felt the need to document the way she looked, to keep my memories intact,” he writes on his website.
The result of his perseverence is this gorgeous tribute to the first 14 years of his daughter’s life, and a heartbreaking expression of the common experience of all parents who watch their children grow from infants into adults right before their eyes.
