Have you ever looked at your child and wondered how they managed to get so big so fast? Those first few years really do fly by – and one dad’s taken a photo every day for four years to prove it.

YouTube user Dumo posted a time-lapse video to the site recently, showing more than 1400 photos of his son, Ray, on consecutive days since birth.

“This is my Picture Every Day Project for my son Ray,” he writes in the video description. “He’s the sweetest kid, love him so much. He still thinks it’s completely normal that I take his picture every day, doesn’t even question it. There will possibly be a day when he figures out that doing this isn’t the law of every household.”

Check out the video below and let us know what you think. How do you record your child’s growth and early years?
