This video, circa 2009, is a stop motion of Eliza dancing. This video is composed of hundreds of individual photographs and is the very first stop motion Jake’s made. Finishing the 2009 December Daily made me realize that we’ve never shared this video, which is crazy, because it’s awesome.

Eliza’s Stop Motion Dance from The Nerd Nest on Vimeo.

The song is “Tree Hugger” by Kimya Dawson and Antsy Pants.

I love that this video really shows E’s personality. We told her to dance, and she did. Even though there was no music. I love that it shows the tiny kitchen in our loft (we live in a house now), the hallway we used to exit to the ally, and the park across the street. But mostly I love the expression on her face when she peaks behind the light pole and her rad dance moves./p>

We need to do another stop motion pronto!

Today is our 8th Anniversary blog party! Keep on checking in for tons of posts throughout the day (and night).
