OK, one last post about Lyla turning one...I promise.
Before I had Lyla I always saw people posting pics of their babies every month, and I liked the idea of having those pictures of L to see how she grew from month to month. But then she started changing so quickly right away, I thought I'd do weekly pics just for the first month. And then it turned into weekly pics for the whole year.
It started out pretty fun, but week by week she got more and more active, my sign got more and more destroyed, and the pics got more and more blurry. Towards the end I swore I would never do this again for any other child, and the end of the weekly pics actually helped me look forward to the first year coming to an end.
We showed a slide show of all the pictures at her birthday party in Denver, and while I was preparing that I was amazed and so glad I had all those pics. It's so fun to see the slight changes of each week, and huge changes from beginning to end. Watching that slideshow for the first time I decided I had to do the same thing for each of my children.
Sometimes I can be such a glutton for punishment.
Here's some of the pics, but I'll spare you from the entire 52 week collection. ;)
