(I’ll be taking a photo of Eleanor sitting in the Eames rocker and wearing her pin each month until she’s two years old.)

She knows how to rock in that chair now! I took a million shots of her smiling and rocking, but they were blurry. I must learn how to take better action photos.

    So cute! Has she started to stand up on her own (while gripping to the furniture)? Time is flying by so quickly with kiddos!

    Did you use the ‘running person’ setting (if you’ve got one)? Or else set it to shutter priority and use the fastest shutter speed you can? (Though neither is particularly easy indoors). I rarely use any other setting with my daughter. (And they get blurrier as they get older…)

      I tried a few with the running person, but those weren’t focused well. I know in theory what I need to do (faster shutter speed, higher ISO), but I’m not good at figuring out how to put that into practice.

    She looks like such a big girl now, with her own mannerisms and personality. I can’t believe your little girl (and mine) will be one year old soon!

    These photos are beautiful! Do you always take a million and choose the one you like the best?

    Did you say what you will do with all the photos after the 2 years have passed? Display them somewhere?

      Yes, I always take at least 50 shots! I’m going to make a book out of the photos. (Not for sale I mean, just a personal book.)

    I think this is one of my favorites! I love how she looks like she’s grabbing her little rolls of adorableness on her legs and looks so curious! It’s amazing to see how much she’s grown and changed in this much time – she’s still so beautiful though!

    So cute! I just love those little legs jutting forward. How about posting a tiny video of her rocking in smiling, since it is tough to capture it in still form?

    My baby is now 5! I miss those days of baby giggles, naps on my shoulder & bouncing on my knee! It’s great how you are documenting Eleanor’s little baby life. As everyone says, the days may be long but the years go by fast!

    can you pretty pretty please do a collage with the photos and crop them so it seems like the chair continues into the next picture so it looks like a series of white waves? I love these photos and wished I had done them with my first baby (and I didn’t do them with my second because then it wouldn’t have been fair- stupid thoughts, I would have loved it!)
