    Simply adorable! It boggles my mind that in her next picture, she’ll be a year old!!

    She’s so adorable!!! Can’t believe she’ll be one in a month! :) Have you got anything planned to celebrate?

  6. Linley March 29, 2010 at 1:52 pm #

    I can’t believe she’s almost one! Then again she’s grown so much! Ah kids are crazy :P

    I love the fresh flowers in the background- the photographs are staged so consistently, but there’s that little hint of Spring that shows time passing.

    You know, these photos are causing the worst baby-fever in the blogosphere!

    I can’t believe it’s almost been a year already! Time flies!

  11. Tatyana March 29, 2010 at 2:47 pm #

    What a cutie! Until now she looked like a baby but in this photo she is looking like a (small) person. Almost a year, wow!

  12. Alma Loveland March 29, 2010 at 2:50 pm #

    I love looking at these! She is 4 months behind my first son, so it’s fun to watch her catching up!

  13. Emily March 29, 2010 at 2:58 pm #

    Love it! My little girl turned 11 months today. I wish I’d discovered your blog sooner so I could have monthly pictures.

  14. Charlotte March 29, 2010 at 3:30 pm #

    My, my how sweet. Actually I think that she’s beginning to look like her Mom.

  15. Kim March 29, 2010 at 4:05 pm #

    It’s so nice to see her grow and change. Adorable! I have an 8-month-old and enjoy seeing Eleanor who is a few months ahead of my Elizabeth. What fun it is!

    And, as an artist, I like seeing the quality of light change in these photos, too. Beautiful work, Nicole. It is clear you enjoy being a mom. (Isn’t it great?)

    So cute! What happened to your nailhead curtains? I see you decided to put up the yellow ones instead. If you don’t have room for them anywhere else–I’d be happy to buy them from you :). I have the perfect spot for them!

  17. Natalie March 29, 2010 at 7:33 pm #

    Wow, she’s really growing up fast ~ what a cutie!

    P.S. I just wanted to thank you for always answering our {my} many, many questions about your fabulous decor. I know you are a busy woman, and it means a lot to have you take the time to find answers for the plethora of questions you receive each day. So thanks! :)

  18. DanielleC March 29, 2010 at 7:47 pm #

    She just gets cuter and cuter each month….love that you share these with us :)

  19. Rafa March 29, 2010 at 8:21 pm #

    She’s so cute in her cool Eames rocking chair! :)
    Congrats for the little princess and the Top 10 California resource !

  20. ajjah March 29, 2010 at 8:48 pm #

    awww she’s growing up so fast..! a great great way to remember her each step of growth.. *melts*

  21. Val Hunter March 30, 2010 at 12:24 am #

    Amazing! She’s almost one!! It’s been lovely to see her grow up!

  22. Rachel March 30, 2010 at 1:06 am #

    That’s the BEST idea. You shouldn’t stop when she’s two though, go on for as long as she’ll let you! ;)

  23. paty fontes March 30, 2010 at 2:26 am #

    always adorable!

  24. Dominic March 30, 2010 at 4:59 am #

    I think it’s a cool idea and you have an adorable little daughter.

    I don’t understand why parents have to put photos online. I mean, of course they’re proud and stuff… I totally get that. But.
    It’s a debatable point but I think children should decide what things about them will be put online when they’re old enough to consider and live with the consequences.

    I mean, I wouldn’t have wanted kids in school to banter me about some (maybe cute but in that situation awkward) photos my mom put online. It’s already enough that she’s telling stories to my g/f and her mom (“oh and when little Nick ate his spinach, the whole kitchen was green afterwards, hehehe”).

    Or I wouldn’t want some weird people to come up to my kid and say “Hi, you’re Susy, right? Your mom Sonja sent me to pick you up, she’s had an accident. I’m a collegue from work at the whatever company, so you can trust me.” (… which he all picked up from her blog, of course).

    Really no offense intended.

      Agreed from a security point of view its better to be safe than sorry. Shame we can’t all show off our kids as much as we’d like, but I guess thats just the way the world is now :( Its a minority we have to worry about obviously – but still the worry is there.

      I’ve worked in child protection and there were huge restrictions about what children we could put photos of online and in our print material.

      Shes so so gorgeous tho – such a cutie. Can’t believe shes going to be one so soon! Not trying to be offensive either.

    • Making it Lovely March 30, 2010 at 10:09 am #

      I don’t think Eleanor will be mocked because of any photos I’ve posted. I’m mindful to not put anything embarrassing online. I’m also mindful of security. We will explain to Eleanor (and her teachers when she starts school) that someone may know her name even though they are a stranger.

  25. Jess March 30, 2010 at 5:29 am #

    Meant to say I don’t agree about the point of kids bantering about old photos of each other. Don’t think you need to worry about anyone saying anything about pics of Eleanor when shes under two!!

  26. Zia Meadows March 30, 2010 at 6:53 am #

    wow what a debate to start! I can see both sides, the security issue is valid, as I sell from home I choose not to blog with pictures of my children as my address has to be more public, but regarding any mocking- just having a baby picture online is hardly embarassing, and children can find anything innocent a source of teasing so you should hardly stop expressing your love for them just because they might get teased for it one day! It does seem like Dominic is perhaps a teen or still thinking like one with as few adults would be so touchy about school teasing or the spinach story, such types of stories are rarely mentioned once the child is old enough to be bothered as few parents really try to embarass their children.
    I think the photo idea is very special, my mother took photos or her 4 children when they were aged 2 and then her 11 grandchildren too, and we now have a special gallery tracing our history of family likenesses, which is very touching to me as a parent.
    sorry to ramble on so!

    • Jess March 30, 2010 at 7:10 am #

      Totally agree.
      No worries on the mocking front – all kids will find something to mock about!

      Agree the photo idea is cute :)

      Just thought no harm thinking about the security issue. I’m sure you’ve thought it through Nicole and figured its ok.

  27. Katrina March 30, 2010 at 7:54 am #

    I can’t believe how quickly she has grown… seems just a week ago I found your blog and saw the first picture! With two little ones of my own, I say keep being a proud mama, and don’t worry about the pics online, she will treasure the fact that you loved her enough to take a TON of pictures {coming from another picture-aholic}

  28. Janice March 30, 2010 at 8:48 am #

    I can’t believe what a smile it brings to my face to see that little doll each month. Touching her little toes – how sweet is that?

  29. Fernanda March 30, 2010 at 9:32 am #

    She looks a lot like your husband!!!

  30. Nuit March 30, 2010 at 11:24 am #

    I cannot believe how quickly she has turned 11!!! seems it was only yesterday that you were painting that rug out on your porch before giving birth… amazing.

    She is so cute…. what are you doing for her birthday???

  31. puck March 30, 2010 at 2:19 pm #

    You will be telling us about her first birthday party, right?

    And you may have missed it, but I sent you a tweet asking what diaper bag you use.

    Thank you!

  32. kristin March 30, 2010 at 6:46 pm #

    i can’t believe how mature her face got this past month! i know that the last one was more of a profile, but dude! that is amazing to see that. still wishing i would have jumped on this wagon earlier. ahhhh well. :)

  33. Dariela March 31, 2010 at 3:01 pm #

    I just wanted to say I am a huge fan of yours and you inspired me to take pictures of my little baby girl every month too. I love yours!

    WHAT?!?!?!?! I visit your site every so often and I love it. I seriously did a double take when I saw that your baby love is 11 months old. I remember your 1st posting about posing her in the chair every month till she is 2. Time is flying. Off to hug my own lil munchie now. Thanks for letting us in to your life ;-)

  36. sunny April 1, 2010 at 6:18 pm #

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while and love your sense of style!
    I’ve been considering getting the eames rocker and wanted to ask if it is comfortable. Is it comfortable for nursing as well?

  37. Desiree Fawn April 4, 2010 at 11:47 pm #

    Oh lordy… how does it go so fast??
