Baby X is getting bigger

Posted by Picasa

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.

That is awesome to see how much he is grown. What a great idea! He looks huge now (comparatively).

I think I am going to do that, in reverse. I just need to find an old pair of jeans that I may be able to squeeze into at the end of my weight loss. The first picture is going to be great!!
