    I’ve been following your blog for a while now and rarely (if ever) comment (although I did vote for you daily for the porch prize). I can hardly stand this! It is so precious. I love this idea. Such a great way to show life developing. Congrats on 6 months!

    What a neat idea! I attempted to do something like that with my pregnant belly, but so far, have failed miserably. (I think I’ve done 2, and I’m already ~7 months) Maybe I’ll try it with my baby! :)

    How cute! I made one for my nephew, Moses, but we have yet to take the picture :) I’m putting an “M” on his, instead of a “1”. It’s browns and blue, polka dots and stripes-sooo cute! Thanks for the idea!

    My daughter had those rolls…we used to say she looked like she had snap on appendages…you know what I mean…like you could just “pop” her arm off below the elbow and put another on….rubberband rings…

    sooo cute

    How cute! Love how she’s sitting in that shot. It’s been so lovely following Eleanor’s progress. I remember I had been following your blog for a long time when I first read that you were pregnant and was excited as I was pregnant at that time too. It’s been fun following your journey.

    So adorable!
    I love the simplicity of the white chair and pink onesie, as to not distract from the cuteness.
    I’m guessing you’ve got pink onesies in every size available?

    So cute! The Michelin Man rolls remind me of my 2nd son – he was such a lug to carry around, but I miss that stage now that he’s 20 mo. and too busy to snuggle with me!

    Adorable! Hey, have you seen this?

    I’m sure you have but when I saw it I immediately thought about you and decided to share on the off-chance that you hadn’t seen them. They have other letters/designs too. :)

    SOO Cute! I have a feeling you may have to have someone else in the background of those photos in the near future. I have a nine month old, and starting at about 7 months, I could no longer put him on a piece of furniture and take a picture without him lunging forward to “fly” er..crawl off!
