I’ve been working for a while now on a series of posts related to my little guy’s first birthday, and I’m excited to start sharing them with you!
To start off, here’s the outcome of Baby C’s monthly photos: I took the photos each month on the date he was born. He sat in the glider in his nursery next to a well-loved stuffed bear that’s special to both of us—my mom gave it to me when I was little and now I’ve given it to him.
Taking the photos each month was pretty easy at first, until about halfway through the year when he caught on to the stickers (if you’re looking for some and like them, these are the ones I used). Then it became a game of distraction to keep him from peeling the sticker off his onesie and crinkling it all up, which happened a few times!
It was also a challenge the first few months to keep him upright before he could sit up on his own and another challenge the last few months to keep him from trying to get down. But it’s doable and definitely worth it for the adorable month-by-month comparison you’ll end up with! It’s amazing to see how much he’s grown and changed in just one year through the series of photographs.
I’m happy with how my monthly photo collage turned out, and I can’t wait to add the finished product to his nursery decor. Up next I’ll share some tips on making your own monthly photo collage of baby’s first year. After a year of taking monthly photos, I’ve definitely learned a thing or two about what I could’ve and should’ve done to make these even better. Stay tuned!
