Since C was 1 month old, I have been taking his picture every month on the same couch with the same blocks spelling out his age. I have seen people do this many times with a toy or stuffed animal. It's so cute to see how they grow and how small that toy or stuffed animal looks next to them over time. I have also seen people using chalk boards or signs to display the baby's age. I wanted to do this with K and am bummed I didn't fall through. I mean I was only a new mom, with a deployed husband, couldn't I get my act together? ;)
So I made a promise to myself that I would dedicate my time and get it done with C. I am pleased to say that we are 6 months in (almost 7) and I have kept up with it. I LOVE already being able to look back a few months and see how much he has changed! I highly recommend doing this with your little one! You won't regret it!! They grow so quick, take all the pictures you can to preserve those memories!!
*I have to give credit to my BFF April for the idea of taking pictures with the blocks!! Here is my little love!!
