When my babies were little I took weekly photos of them posing next to a favorite stuffed animal. I love looking back at those photos and noticing the subtle ways in which they were growing day by day and week by week. As they grew I switched from doing weekly photo sessions to monthly ones until finally the months started to slip by unnoticed.
These days I see how much they’ve grown when the seasons change and clothing no longer fits.
I miss that stark visual that the posed photos offered up.
This week I’ve come across a few adorable ideas for capturing that growth. This one, featured on Real Simple, is by far my favorite. Best part is that it’s a much better way to save those first shoes than leaving them to languish in the back of a closet!
How have you measured your children’s growth?
