My, How You’ve Grown: 12 Months of Baby Photo Shoots

My How You've Grown: 12 Months of Baby Photo ShootsAs my baby has met the one-year mark, I’ve found myself reminiscing with increased frequency, and one of my favorite things to reminisce over has been her monthly photo shoots.

I’ll admit, they were kind of a pain and a lot more work than I had anticipated, but now that I’m able to look back on them as a representation of Fern’s first year as a whole, I have to say that it was definitely worthwhile, and I’m glad I did it.

Here is a month-by-month round up of all of Fern’s photos from this first year of her life…
