    Love these pictures. Do you, or will you be, selling those pins in your store? I think they would make such a great baby gift.

    Adorable. I think it is going to get harder to keep her still for a photograph as she gets older.

    She’s too cute. I love how she’s playing with the tree and isn’t focusing on the camera. Oh distractions.

    What do you plan on doing with these photos at the 2 year mark? I think it would be adorable to make a book out of them!

    I love how the progression of photos really illustrates her developmental milestones – at 4 months, she’s putting everything in her mouth (teething), at 6 months she is sitting up by herself and at 8 months she starting to get mobile and is grabbing for everything in sight. I also have an 8 month old daughter and she is into everything.

    I love your blog and voted for you in the Homies today. Good luck!

    hello! Your daughter is absolutely adorable! I was just wondering about the gold leaves on the end table in the background. Is that a tree? Individual branches? Not tree-y at all? I’m asking because my grandparents had a gold metal tree with lots of little gold leaves like that, that I’m trying and trying to find but no one has a clue what I’m talking about. It was circa late 60s early 70s. And the gold leaves in this picture, whatever they’re attached to, look like the same gold leaves from this tree I’m so earnestly searching for. So…just wondering where you got it! Thanks!

    aaaw Eleanor look better each month, or is it just me?

    Great idea, I love photographing my baby each month too, but never thought of using the same props, the same lighting, and the same dress every month. LOVE IT!
