Eric and Priscilla welcomed baby Jack on December 6, 2014. Like most new parents, returning to work and leaving a newborn at home — even for just a few hours — was enough to break Priscilla’s heart. When she went back to work on nights and weekends six weeks after giving birth, Eric began staying home with Jack. The doting dad decided to do take an extra step in order to keep Priscilla in the loop and up-to-date with Jack’s daily life.

Eric created daily “dubsmash” videos which features him lip-syncing his way through otherwise ordinary moments spent at home with an infant. From feeding Jack broccoli to snuggling in bed, Eric went above and beyond to creatively capture their growing bond and make Mom smile while she was away.

Below is a compilation from Eric’s clips in 2015, and you’ll hear everything from Justin Timberlake to songs from Disney’s “Aladdin.” Needless to say, Priscilla was absolutely thrilled to receive her adorable video updates.

It’s no wonder Eric’s video is going viral. What a fantastic way to commemorate the first year of fatherhood. “I had a blast, and it’s a great way to bond with him and learn how to be a dad and what to do with a baby when you’re alone with a baby for the day,” he told Today.com.

Enjoy this amazing compilation, and please SHARE it with your friends on Facebook! Great job, Eric!
