I adore my kids. I think I could literally sit and cuddle with them all day...and at this age, they just might let me! Which is why I'm obsessed with soaking up every moment of these childhood years and always look for creative ways to preserve these special memories. I've blogged about other memory preservation ideas before. This one was inspired by a dear friend who took a picture of her daughter every month during her first year with the same stuffed animal sitting beside her as a comparison of how much she'd grown. I gulped up this idea and determined to do it with my little ones, too!
We put our own little twist on the progression pictures...Kyler got an adorable mini-office chair from his Granma (yes, no "d", she insists!), so we used it as the main feature to compare his growth.
I love to see the growth! I will say, if I could do it over though, I would have made sure to get the entire chair in the picture and taken it from the same angle every time so that the comparisons were more accurate. You can also see that as he grew more mobile, it became harder and harder to get him to sit still for a posed shot! Still, it's a pretty good sampling of the first year.
