It seems these days that parents are taking fancy picture of their kid every day for the first year, photoshopping in numbers, a different background each time. There are a million variations of it. But when it came down to it for me, I knew that easier meant I was more likely to follow through. And I did, for the most part.
The days weren't exactly one month after the other-- and I didn't beat myself up over it. It is what it is! I do love to see how much she's grown. Her legs went from skinny to chunky to sturdy. Her hair gradually grew throughout the year. At one year, it was starting to fall into her eyes. I'm glad I took the time to do this!
