Adorable photos! My sis did the same thing as her baby grew, but an actual chair that the baby can sit in…great idea! :)

Oh how sweet! I wish I had thought of that when my girl was tiny!


Andrea January 22, 2009 at 8:17 am

Absolutely adorable!!! I love the Paul Frank monkey–so cute! He really has gotten big and it looks like he is now sitting up on his own:)

I did the same thing with my youngest (wished I would’ve done it with my firstborn). Check it out:

Wow!! That really shows how much he’s changed!

Oh wow I like how you did that every month! Wish I would have done that with my little man, oh well though! How much did he weight at birth? He was a big boy wasn’t he, well he sure is a cutey! Great job mom! 😉 God Bless

Too cute that you do this as well. I take a pic of my son every month on same day ( when he turns a month older) with his bear chair, (
to see how he has grown.. i started at 1 week old then 1 month 2 months etc,…. its fun to see. eventually he got off the chair and was crawling on it for pics heheheh and by it. He turns 1 year old next friday! wow time flies and he is stnding at the chiar now walking kinda… its gonna look so neat all these in his scrapbook each month!! I love doing this… you see how time flies… Dont Blink….

This is so cute! I have seen people do this before with a stuffed animal but I love the monkey chair!


Karla January 22, 2009 at 10:54 pm

That is a wonderful idea, and he is very precious. He seems to be such a happy baby!


Leah January 22, 2009 at 10:55 pm

What a cute idea! I love your blog and your little boy is just the sweetest thing!


Esther January 22, 2009 at 10:56 pm

He is really cute! We are doing the same thing for 2 month old son.

in Him,



Kristin January 22, 2009 at 11:26 pm

Holy cow! What a great way to see how your little guy has grown! And he HAS grown! What a big guy now!


Keianna January 22, 2009 at 11:29 pm

This is super sweet. He has really grown.


Katie January 23, 2009 at 12:30 am

I love it!!! I did the same thing with my son in his baseball glove chair. Isn’t it amazing how huge the chair looks in the first picture, and how it now appears to shrink? Once he turned 1 I have cut it down to a yearly picture. Elias gets cuter and cuter.


Melissa January 23, 2009 at 1:12 am

Heehee, just giggling thinking that in a few months when he is crawling/walking, trying to get a pic of him in the chair will be verrrry challenging :0) Cute idea!


Debbie January 23, 2009 at 2:08 am

Gorgious, gorgious pics!


Amie January 23, 2009 at 5:14 am

He’s always so happy! Cutie!

/ppDear Sir,br /Please find enclosed a monk’s habit. The long robe will cover your woedon leg and, with your bald head, you will really look the /Very truly yours,br /Acme Costume Co./ppNow the man is really upset since they have gone from emphasizing his woedon leg to emphasizing his bald head so again he writes the company another nasty letter of complaint. The next day he gets a small parcel and a note, which reads:/ppDear Sir,br /Please find enclosed a bottle of molasses and a bag of crushed nuts.

Rachel January 23, 2009 at 7:33 pm

wow! that’s crazy how much they grow in just one month!!! What a great idea to take photos like that each month to document it. I never would have though of that. Wish I had with my little ones. LOVE your blog.


queenoftheclick January 23, 2009 at 10:42 pm

That’s awesome to have that monkey chair for him to take his pics! He’s soooooooo cute!


Andrea @ Mommy January 24, 2009 at 3:52 am

That is a good idea! I did something similar with our 2nd son and it’s so neat to watch them grow and change while that item stays the same. He’s such a cutie!
