This is a video I edited togther when Mazzy was around six months old. I had been shooting video of her on my Flip since the day she was born— hours upon hours of her doing absolutely nothing. When you can't sit through home videos of your own baby, then you know you've got a problem. I needed to edit all the footage down to one cohesive video for both the sake of my laptop hard drive and in fairness to friends and relatives who probably don't want to be subjected to a full thirty minutes of a blinking baby lying on a blanket.

When Mazzy turned over from her back to her stomach after attempting for months, I knew I finally had my story. And the best part is it's less than two minutes long.
