There is a growth chart in our boys’ playroom. Lines and stickers and scribbles mark their progress at birthdays and other random times throughout the year.
It’s fun to have them measure up against how they are now versus how they were then. Still, I wish I had done one of the clever photo memes that you see all over the web. I do have thousands of pictures of my kids scattered across Flickr, Instagram, 3 iPhones, and 2 computers but none of them were organized with an end project in mind.
Other parents, however, have planned ahead. Doing time-lapse of your kids as they grow really is now a thing. And while it’s a ‘thing’ for 2012, the parents who are going viral for doing it have been working at it for decades.
After the jump, I’ll run through some of the best of the meme and show you some apps that you can use to get started on time lapsing your kids.

21 Years Every Day 3 of 8We take a lot of pictures of our kids. We all do. Ian Mcleod took one every day of his son Cory and then put them together in a 6 minute time lapse. More than 7 000 images make up the 6 minute YouTube clip that show him growing from infant to man. Just as how we experience life, the infant moments start out slowly before the teen years start racing by. Parenthood really is over before we know.
