Monthly Baby Photos

I always knew I wanted to take a series of photos of my children their first year, to document their growth…  babies change so fast, I figured it would be a fun way to remember this stage of their lives.

We got pregnant with Connor, and I started making plans for his monthly photo shoots.  But, those plans were derailed when he decided to arrive a little too early!  Because he would spend the first several months of his life in the NICU, I had to get extra creative – so, the Monkey Series was born!  Using a stuffed monkey that we could take with us to the hospital (which was nearly as big as he was in the beginning), I attempted to capture his rapid growth during his first 12 months:

The Monkey Series

When my sister was pregnant with her youngest, Ally, I thought it would be fun to make her a series of monthly stickers as one of her baby gifts.  These stickers could be affixed right to Ally’s onesie each month, for her monthly photo shoot.  I’ll cut my sister a little slack, since her two girls are only 18 months apart and she often has her hands full, but this is all what she’s captured so far during Ally’s first 10 months:

Ally's First Year

I thought I’d offer these up as another free printable.  These stickers are nothing fancy, but they’re an easy and cute way to “label” each monthly photo… especially if you’re not handy with photo editing software, or you simply want to give them to someone as a gift.  I used full-sheet labels, and each set of stickers will only require 3 sheets.

Super cute idea!!! So much easier to just stick them on. Thanks for sharing! Visiting from the Sugar and Spice Link Party @ 733!

Your baby is so adorable and I love those stickers. My son is 5 months (today!) so I feel a little late using them. But, like you, I did start (late-at 2 months) taking his picture with a stuffed giraffe. The pics are so cute. -found you at My Backyard Eden:)

Kristi @ Creative Kristi said...

Very Cute idea! I might have to fudge the month 1 & 2 in Photoshop since I've been taking my 2nd's picture in a white onesie every month but I'll use the rest of them! I'll probably also make a set for my sister who is due in Sept.! Thanks so much for sharing! I came over from Somewhat Simple's Strut Your Stuff!

Randi said...

I LOVE this idea and wish I still had a tiny baby to do it with. I'm sharing the idea with friends.

Life in Rehab said...

Very cute! I wonder if my oldest would pose for a picture with one that says, "228 Months Old"?

Brandy said...

too cute!
my little guy is turning 2 months tomorrow and I already started doing something ......... but I'm saving this my my sister-in-law!
thanks for sharing!!!

Alison said...

This is such a great idea! I tried to take a picture each month with a teddy bear for my four girls. Now I look at some of them and think, "Was that 3 months or 4 months???" No mistaking this one! I wish I wasn't done having kids now.

KasiaJ said...

Great idea!

Alissa said...

I saw a similar idea, except they just photoshopped the number on.

Em @ Bunch of Scrap said...

What a great idea! Thanks for linking up! I wish I would have seen this 18 months ago! :)

Nesty Girl said...

What a cute idea! I'm visiting from The Saturday Standstill. Have a great week!

Fabie said...

Great Idea :-)

Dee said...

Great idea! We put a stuffed bear in our boys photos! The stickers are an adorable touch.

Daydream Believer said...

The stickers are such a great idea! {visiting from Sumo}

Kristi said...

That really is a great idea. My sis just had a baby so I'll share with her.

I was just thinking the other day that it would be cool to take a photo of your child every month until they leave the nest. Wouldn't it be cool to look back on all of them after 18 years?

powlig said...

This such a neat idea. I love it and wish I did it sooner. I guess now I can take old pictures and put them together now.

Ashlee @ I'm Topsy Turvy said...

Love love LOVE IT! So cute, Too bad it seems I might have to be done, my sister is done, my SIL's are done... That leaves my baby sister... We'll see. I love it, and that you included downloads! I'd love it if you stopped by Topsy Turvy Tuesdays! http://imtopsyturvy.com

Visiting from The Girl Creative. Love this idea. Wish I had this for when my daughter was first born. But I did something similar as you with the monkey, except ours is Benny the Bunny. Kids grow so fast and it's great we can capture their growth. Thanks for sharing the stickers. Now I'm off to print them as gifts

Leslie said...

What a FABULOUS idea! I could have used this desperately with my kiddos! I am so bad about getting their pictures scrapbooked, so this would of helped out! Thanks for linking up to Hoo's got talent!

Katie said...

Great idea! I always used a sign that I made and would set next to the twins. But for months 9-12, they fought over who got to hold and eat the sign!

Jill said...

What a cute idea. Handy for when you look back years from now and don't know when the pictures were taken!

Fun On a Dime Lady said...

I love this idea! So helpful! My friend just had twins and we were talking about monthly photo shoots. This will be great!

Would you mind if I shared this on my blog in a month or so? I'd give you credit, of course! I think others would love this, too

Cath said...

Great idea - thanks for sharing!

Leslie said...

I featured this today on Hoo's got talent! Feel free to grab the button that says I've got talent!

Love this idea - just too bad my baby is turning 1 in a few weeks! Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday:)

Lilac City Momma said...

Such an awesome idea! I love it!!

Gwen @ Gwenny Penny said...

Really cute. I did this with both of my girls. I put them on the exact same sheet every time in a plain white Onesie and printed a giant number for the month to lay down next to them on the sheet. I love having this timeline of pictures to document their first year. They change so much from month to month!

Summer said...

I'll be featuring your idea on my blog tomorrow! Come grab a featured button!

Thanks for linking up to Topsy Turvy Tuesday's! I wish I could get my husband to agree to another baby so I could use this! Just a great idea and SO cute!

Katie's Nesting Spot said...

What a fun idea, I did a weekly picture with my daughter the first year but it would've been nice to highlight the months with these! Fun idea and simple enough so the nonsewers can do it too!

Kat @ Black Kats Design said...

Thank you! I've seen this idea on Etsy for big $$ to have them screen printed. I was trying to think of a cheaper DIY method. I never thought of stickers! You've saved me so much time and money. I can now give them as a gift to my brother and sister-in-law who are expecting in May.
