What an excellent video for kids to see: one of their own growing from a baby to a 12 year old, above… and to 18 years old below.

This video has gone viral since linked on Reddit. Filmmaker Frans Hofmeester recorded video of Lotte, his daughter, every week from birth until 12 years old. He also recorded his son Vince from birth to 9 years in this fun video with more faces, props and video game style music.
