I’ve been in the process of gathering up and organizing the first year of Ruari’s life. If you haven’t read it before… I’ll let you know a little something about me: I tend to procrastinate on home projects. So, I really didn’t want R’s first year to turn into one of those projects! At all. I’ve finished her baby book for the first year and now I created a short little video of my favorite video clips, bits, and photos of the first 12 months using Animoto.
This little video is sort of a mama’s day gift for me. <3 I have roughly one million videos from R’s first year that are just sitting there on our mass storage drive. Doing nothing. I attempted to make a video montage on my old PC for her first birthday… it was an absolute frustrating disaster. I spent so much darn time on that thing and didn’t have anything to show for it since I couldn’t figure it all out. I think I’ll need to create a few different Animoto videos of my girl. I think next up is a food themed clip, then a year 2 video. I so wish I knew about this site when Ruari turned one and 2!
So lucky for me this was surprisingly simple and I’ve watched this video I made about 4 times already. Makes me smile/tear up! I can’t believe how small she was….
I really hope you enjoyed. I had fun creating it. I shared it with Ruari… she liked the first minute, then got distracted by something shiny and wandered away…. but, I know she’ll love it in the future. Do you have a ton of videos just sitting there? Doing nothing? Am I the only one? Anything to make my life easier is good in my book.
