These are all from Caroline’s sweet little mouth.

Me: Tell me about your life these days.
Her: Well. I don’t actually HAVE ONE since Emily always says ‘GET A LIFE CAROLINE’.

While in Target shopping for a dress for the Daddy Daughter Dance:
Hey. I really need a necklace or a bracelet or maybe I can just have a bra or something?

While climbing across the counter in the laundry room:
This is bascially a shortcut to the hospital.

In the car after picking up Chick-fil-A yesterday (February 2nd):

Talking about her overbite and upcoming orthodontic treatment:
These teeth are jacked up. I can’t even chew my food good because my teeth stick out so much. My face won’t be the same and I will be different.

(Geesh. That last one broke my heart. Why am I so sentimental about TEETH?!?)

I’m sure you’ve probably seen this going around. Where you commit to videoing 1 second of your day each day. Then, putting those clips together to make one big video. Well, guess who hopped aboard that train?

*toot toot*!

Except, I simply couldn’t limit myself to one teeny tiny little second each day.


Well, it’s short.

So, I ended up with *almost* a second and a half per clip.

PLUS, I shot more than one video a day.

I know. I know.

Before I knew it I was having a blast with this project AND BREAKING ALL THE RULES at the same time!

Such a rebel.

But will I regret recording more than one second and totally not committing to the Just One Second project like everyone else?

Um. lemme think.


I mean, who doesn’t want MORE videos? Nobody has ever said, “okay, you know what? That’s entirely too much baby giggling. Trim it down sister”.

Below you’ll find my rebellious not-just-one-second video for January.

But first, I shot these with a Nikon d810 + 35mm. The aperture was between 1.4 and 2.2 and I used auto white balance. I put the video together in iMovie and did not edit the clips at all aside from trimming down and removing sound. Also, the music was free from Bensound.

  • Jackie - I mean, c’mon. I don’t even have the words to express how beautiful this is Melissa. Such beautiful glimpses of real life. You’re family is precious and I just love that you all will have these wonderful treasures of video to look back on as your girls get older. What a priceless gift. And your talent…don’t even get me started. I feel like I could say this about everything you do, but it’s so true! God has gifted you with such a beautiful gift, for sure! 🙌❤🙌ReplyCancel
