A 365 Photo Project for Baby's First Year

I will look back and wonder why he was so grouchy on day 11!

If I was an organized mommy, I would have started this project on day one.  Instead I am starting it on day 26 – that’s not too late, right?  I may not be organized but I am most definitely camera-happy, so as luck would have it I have a photo of my son from each of his first 26 days (more like 2,000 photos, but who’s counting?).

I thought it would be fun to take on a 365 Project – that’s choosing one photo for every day of Cullen’s first year.  I don’t think it will be hard to keep up with since it’s just one photo, and cell phone pictures most definitely count.

I’m posting the pictures on a private blog just for friends and family, and at the end of the project I plan to turn all the photos into a photo book.  I think it will make a great keepsake for us, as well as a great gift for doting grandparents!

We’re only 26 days in and already I’m having a hard time choosing my favorite photos.  Click below to see a few highlights from our first few weeks!
