I love the whimsy and femininity of floral numbers. This mom did a different flower motif for every month of her baby girl's first year.
Stickers are a super cute (and simple) way to mark the months flying by. Bonus points for situating your baby on the same chair, blanket, or other stationary object to track the monthly growth.
Every month is an opportunity for a mini party, even if that means just one mylar balloon and a well loved stuffed animal.
Monthly baby photos with a stuffed animal aren't just extra adorable -- they're also a great way to showcase your baby's growth as the months fly by. He or she might be super tiny next to his best bud for the first few months, but what a difference a year makes!
A staged shoot in the theme of a favorite book or movie makes monthly baby photos extra special. I am swooning over this Curious George picture with the bananas spelling out the number! Go, Mama.
What can we say -- donut ever grow up! The best way to do it, though, is with a side of sweet.
List your babe's stats on a felt letter board or chalkboard sign. These are cheap and easy to pick up from Amazon, Walmart, or Target.
These are both bittersweet and absolutely adorable. Whatever theme you pick, wrap up a full year by putting them all in one spot at the end. Bring on the tissues!
