Frans Hofmeester has filmed his son every week of the young boy’s life, from birth until his recent ninth birthday. “Portrait of Vince” is now making the internet rounds, and if you’re looking for a little fluff break from work, it’s pretty great to see a beautiful smiling baby grow into a young boy before your eyes. I love that it’s not just a photo each week - you see the sleepy mornings, the giggle fits, and the toddler tears - as Vince navigates the salty waters of tooth loss and childhood.

(Elsewhere: in the far-off, cobwebby corners of YouTube, a more sinister transformation is taking place.)
