Through the weeks.

A number of you have asked whether or not I've continued to take a weekly photo of Caroline.

Okay, I'll admit it. By "a number of you" I mean to say my mom, my grandma, and my husband. So about 30% of my overall readership.

But the answer is yes.

Mostly yes. I'm not super strict, but we're still at it. And no, I still don't know what we'll do with all of these pictures once the year is up. Baby book, yes. But hopefully something beyond that, too! I'm cooking up some ideas.

Caroline through the weeks through 7-1

From day to day and week to week, I don't see changes in her. Like, at all. As in, I feel like I could fool all of you by just posting pictures from the same day.

But I'm thankful I have this little project to look back on. I mean, from week 3 to week 8? TOTALLY DIFFERENT. From week 12 to week 18? CHANGES. I also like to capture little details that are a part of our life at certain times. Around week 19 she liked her Bumbo seat. That was a short-lived phase. By 24 weeks she was juuuust starting to sit up on her own. For seconds at a time. A love affair with Sophie the Giraffe came around week 27, and by week 32 she was trying her darnest to move forward to grab toys.

She's still not super successful at it, by the way.

So through this we've got a little chronicle of our growing girl... it is a joy and an honor to behold.

Seriously, how long did it take you to put the pics together like that?! Amazing.

So sweet. You inspired me to do something similar with Nathaniel. I took pictures of Adeline in the same outfit every week for several months. It was fun to watch her go from swimming in it to it being too small, but it was a pain to put her in it every week. I've taken a picture of Nathaniel every week, but I don't try to do it at the same spot or in the same outfit. I've enjoyed seeing his various expressions and showcasing some of the new things he's doing (ie Bumbo).

I think it is so cool you do that, I wish I had done something like that because they change so quickly that you hardly notice it. Now you have a great way to chronicle it.
