Bo's Monthly Photos (1 to 3)

Hi All,

Thank you for your sweet comments on my last few baby-sewing posts!  Unfortunately, I haven't yet got a snap of my big and little boys in their matching bow-ties, but I'm working on it.....  ;-)

I'd LOVE to share some photos of Bo with you today, though! 

Inspired by Pinterest (as ever), I decided that I wanted to take a special photo of Bo, every month, to record how he grows and changes.  I saw some examples where people had used chalkboard walls as backdrops, and written about their babies' monthly milestones on them.  I thought that was a brilliant idea!

Simon had been talking about painting a blackboard wall for a while.  He wanted it for writing food-ideas and notes on.  With a bit of nagging from me, he got around to it just in time for Bo's 1-month birthday! 

I tried writing on the wall with chalk.  In 'real life', it looked good and really clear.  But, on the photos, it didn't look so great.  So I cheated and did the writing during the photo-editing stage! 

So, here are Bo's monthly photos numbers 1 to 3:

I know I'm TOTALLY biased.....  But isn't he scrumptious?!? 

Time has just FLOWN by!!!  It seems like no time at all since we were bringing a tiny little newborn home - and yet he'll be 16 WEEKS on Sunday (photo shoot time again)!!!

See you around the blogosphere.....
