I posted about these month by month photos here. I'd seen it done and always wished I'd done it with Genevieve. It's nice to be able to have a re-do in with baby #2!
I created these collages in picmonkey. I did a few different types/layouts...this is the close ups one. I didn't go through 12 tiring and stressful photoshoots to share one tiny picture. uh uh.
I love the full body shots that show just how much she grew over the course of a year...from barely filling a corner of the rocker to taking over the whole darn thing. Another thing I love? That I can look at these and see her various phases. Phase 1- colicky and not so smiley. Phase 2- getting happier! Phase 3- trying to sit up and getting personality. Phase 4- needed props and nearly fell of the chair. Phase 5- big girl, happy, mobile, and such a ham.
And here area few of my faves that didn't make the collage...but show her little personality:
leggy like mama.
that sweet neck. those tired eyes.
You wanna step to this?
this is how she sucks her thumb.
take that mama! (at this point, I ordered extra labels but of course didn't end up needing them. She decided to behave after month 8).
Ok, not the best shot but she was dancing as Genevieve and I sang happy birthday! Too cute!
yep, we're walking.
I miss those gummy grins already.
How did you document the milestones?
