Month-By-Month Baby Pictures {Craft/Project}

by Amy on 4 February 2015

Month-By-Month Baby Pictures | www.FearlessHomemaker.comToday, I’m taking a quick break from recipe-posting to share a fun little project that I did with Fearless Baby over her first 18 months: Month-by-month pictures! This was super easy, relatively quick, free, and helped me capture memories from those early months that I will treasure forever. I’m not sure where I first saw the idea a few years ago (maybe on Facebook or Pinterest?), but I remember making a mental note that I SO wanted to do that when I had a child. And I did! =)

The premise is simple: I photographed Baby in the same chair, with the same stuffed bunny, every month from 1-18. I didn’t buy any special outfits for the photos – I just chose something that I had loved seeing her wear in that given month (and in the last two pictures, she helped me select her outfit, which was fun). And I wasn’t super fussy about the actual date of the picture – some months, I took it a bit early. Some months, a bit late. Whatever worked with our schedule/mood that month.

I initially thought I’d stop with the pictures after 12 months, but I was enjoying taking them so much (+ Baby truly *loves* having her picture taken), so I decided to keep it up for a few months longer, until we reached 18 months, which felt like a good stopping point. I am hoping to still take a yearly birthday picture in that same chair each June – we’ll see if we’re able to complete that goal!

I love this idea – Im sharing it with my sis – her little one is four months now. Better late than never. And how stinkin’ cute is your little girl?!

Share away! And no, it’s certainly not too late. =) I bet she has a great newborn photo in a certain spot – maybe she could recreate that spot for a 4 month, 8 month, + 12 month picture, too! =)

So adorable! I love that she helped choose her own clothes in the last two photos. This is such a great idea to track the passage of time.

What a lovely post to share!

Fearless Baby is just beautiful. It is so nice to see all of the photos together, to really see how she has grown and changed. Well done Fearless Mama on getting these wonderful memories recorded…you will treasure them in the years to come :)

Carla + everyone else – thank you so much for your sweet words! I’m going to share them with Baby once she’s awake from her nap + they will totally make her day. :)

I’ve seen this before and think it’s such a wonderful idea! I’ve never been organized enough to make it happen, but it sure is amazing to see how much they change in such a short time!
