    I feel like you should continue this every month til she graduates from high school…it’s just such a cute idea!

    Happy birthday Eleanor! I have twin boys who are about a month older, but we had the same due date of April 20. I remember when you announced your pregnancy, and it’s been fun going through all the stages with you guys! Somehow I can’t believe Eleanore is already one, it makes this last year seem much shorter than it felt, if you know what I mean. Anyhow, congratulations, and I look forward to experiencing toddlerhood with you!

    What a clever idea! She’ll be so happy to have those photos when she’s older.

    Awww! I know we’ve been seeing her every month, but this is the first time my reaction was “Look how big she’s gotten!” Really, she has. She looks so grown up! Happy Birthday Eleanor!

  17. Punctuation Mark April 30, 2010 at 4:43 pm #

    She definitely is picture perfect and postcard ready… congrats on the gorgeous child!

  18. Katy R April 30, 2010 at 8:51 pm #

    how can she possibly be a year old already?! I have been reading your blog since before she was born, I remember the very first chair picture when it was posted… it can’t possibly have been a year already! time certainly flies!

    happy birthday!!

  19. Viv April 30, 2010 at 11:27 pm #

    Happy birthday gorgeous girl! Look how much she’s grown.

    Wow! I a year has already passed. Happy Birthday Eleanor!

  22. Chava May 2, 2010 at 2:20 pm #

    Happy Birthday beautiful Eleanor!

    Wow, she has changed *a lot* in the last month. She has more… defining(?) features now. Maybe it’s just the expression she’s making. Thanks for sharing this project with us. It’s going to be such a treasure for your family! I can’t wait to see how she develops over the next twelve pics.

  23. Kalee May 4, 2010 at 9:12 am #

    I have absolutely loved these photos since the beginning (I might even call my husband over and make him look every single time)! Hope Eleanor had a phenomenal first birthday!

  24. sarah May 4, 2010 at 8:13 pm #

    Look how much she has grown! Too cute…. I totally plan on stealing this idea when I have kids. Congrats Nicole for your first year as a Mom!!!!

  25. Ang May 5, 2010 at 1:16 pm #

    This is the cutest idea! Thanks for sharing. Completely inspiring… she is adorable! Do you have that pink onsie in every size, or do you make them?

  26. patricia May 6, 2010 at 8:25 am #

    So cute as always! Happy belated birthday to your little one.

  27. Rabia May 6, 2010 at 8:56 am #

    Just started reading your blog about a week ago, and it is wonderful! Definitely making note of things I’d like to do once I (we, rather – avec future hubby) have a place.

    A very happy birthday to little Eleanor – she is totally adorable!

  28. Ashley at Hither and Thither May 6, 2010 at 2:18 pm #

    What a cutie! And what a fantastic idea!

    Happy Birthday to your sweet Eleanor! I love the pictures, they grow so fast. Our little one just turned 4! We have a little photo album that was given to us that holds one picture for each year. The idea is to have the baby wear the same outfit with meaning for each year. We put her in my wedding dress…it will be cool when she is standing there in it. Now she sits on the couch with the dress draping down.

  30. Hopeless Chest May 9, 2010 at 2:01 pm #

    Adorable! So neat how her hair went blond.

  31. Danielle May 18, 2010 at 4:11 pm #

    See what happens when I don’t visit for awhile!!! She’s such a big girl and full of personality. You can tell from the picture. Happy 1st sweetie!!!

  32. Ms Pink July 7, 2010 at 5:54 pm #

    this is the cutest idea i have ever seen <3

    this is amazing… so perfect and ur daughter’s pose at each month actually captures the development growth at that stage. love the one where she is crawling out and leaning forward!

  34. Kat August 31, 2010 at 8:24 pm #

    Would make a brilliant book! You should continue to photograph her in that same chair yearly! till she leaves home! and publish it in a book in the end…could even have her child in the same chair one day!

  35. aubrey September 8, 2010 at 8:09 pm #

    I LOVE this idea! I will have to borrow it when I have a baby!! ^_^

  36. Kelsey Kleiman October 31, 2010 at 7:48 pm #

    This series is wonderful. my husband and I always talk about doing this and never do. We’re thinking of setting up a photo station in our new home (which is why I am perusing your blog).

    Thanks!

    Kelsey
