Happy Belated Mother’s Day + Baby Photos by Month

May 13, 2013

Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! 😉

This Mother’s Day wasn’t exactly what I had expected but I won’t complain.

Hubby was gone due to training for work…so no photos of Mabel and me.  And then Mabel has been battling a tummy bug for the past few days.  I’ll spare you the details but it’s safe to say I was wearing some of her troubles…yuck.

Anyway, let me show you what I finally had the time to create from all of her first year monthly photos; my reason for being able to celebrate Mother’s Day:

Mabel through the months - photo idea baby growth

I finally got around the creating her year of photos (you gotta love Pinterest ideas!). 🙂

(You can find the letters I used here.)

She’s mastered the super happy, squinty smile by months 11 and 12.  Gotta love it!  And don’t ask about some of the crazy hair pics, especially month 11.  Hubby thought he was doing a pretty good job at putting her hair in a bun…but to me, it looks like some kind of Sumo wrestler hairstyle.  🙂  I’m just thankful he tried!

This little girl brings a special joy to my life that I didn’t know existed before she joined our family.  So even though my husband wasn’t here to celebrate and Mabel wasn’t feeling her best, it was still an awesome day of one on one time with Miss Mabel

How was your Mother’s Day?  Did you get to do anything special?

    Super cute! Seeing your monthly photos of your little one inspired an idea for how I take my son’s monthly photos. Can’t wait to put mine together.

    Months 7 and 10 are my favorites! Seven most of all, I think! You seriously have one of the cutest little girls I’ve ever seen! I’m 4 weeks along in my first pregnancy and hope I have a little one just like Mabel!
