Track Your Baby's Growth With Sequential Monthly Photos

It's certainly not a new idea; in fact, I've seen it dubbed "the 21st Century baby book." But perhaps precisely because it has become so popular to take monthly (or even weekly!) photos of your child, there are lots of inspiring ideas out there. I've rounded up some of my favorites.

1. Continue dressing your child in a single outfit, while it's both too big and way, way too small! (Erica's Bloggity Blog)

2.

3.
Try something really fun and create an entire scene around your baby. This one represents the season during which the photo was taken. (About Him and Her)

4.
The sheepskin doesn't grow, but your baby does! (Honey & Fitz)

5.
Use a special prop that represents the season, like this umbrella for "April showers." (Ice Cream Off Paper Plates)
