I've been taking photos of him every week since he was born, and the other day, I finally started sorting and compiling and editing. I was overwhelmed by the change over the last (almost) year. It made me sad — where'd my wittle baby go?!? And it made me happy — he's so fun, and I love watching him learn and grow! I try to stay in the moment, enjoying today without wishing for the past or yearning for the future too much. But, because he's such a cute, sweet baby, I thought I'd share my weekly photos with you. ;-)
Here's the first month, starting with the day we came home from the hospital:
Week 0 — First day home from hospital
It took me awhile to find to find my groove with how to set up the shoots. I had seen a Pin of monthly photos in a laundry basket, so that's where I got that idea. (Unfortunately, it's a direct upload, so I can't tell what the original source is, but here's my pin.) At first I thought I'd be all cute and have signs stating the week, etc. But that pretty quickly went out the window. I started out putting him in the basket in whatever he was wearing, but once we started with cloth diapers, I knew they would be perfect. And easy! I just put him the basket after I changed his diaper, usually first thing in the morning. I you'll see that start in the next post.
Anyway, there's Peanut's first month!
