I saw in some parenting magazine a few years ago a story about a mom who took a picture of her baby girl in her old bathing suit every year on the girl's birthday. At first it was just this bundle of cloth, then a dress as the baby grew into a little girl and then it actually fit her perfectly at age 16 or so. I saw a similar story of a mom who took a picture of her baby each month of its first year. It was really neat to see how a newborn (who, let's admit it, is never really that cute), turns into a baby.
So I've been taking Baby X's picture every Saturday (excluding the Saturday he was born and when he was back in the hospital) with this alligator. Here are his first twelve weeks.
