A few months before Little Bug was born, a friend of mine had her baby. Each week she sat her little girl by the same stuffed animal and posted them on Facebook. Her album was called, "Watch Maddie Grow". I was determined to do the same with Little Bug when he got here. He was born on a Tuesday, so every Tuesday since then, he has gotten his picture taken with the same stuffed animal... the lamb.
It's been so fun to see the lamb shrink as Little Bug gets bigger!
All you need is a stuffed animal. I chose a blanket so that I would have the same background in all my photos... definitely not necessary.
I think it's a great idea for the first year. If anyone is about to have a baby, I suggest looking for the right stuffed animal now! I wish that I had found a stuffed whale to photograph Little Bug by. Anyway, I don't plan on continuing this past the first year. I think it would start to become a fight when I'm making my 16 year take a picture with his lamb. But... I wouldn't put it past me!
