Fourteen Months Old (August’s Monthly Photo)

August turned fourteen months old yesterday, on Easter Sunday. This is the first time I’ve not done a monthly photo on the proper date since I started the project with Eleanor, nearly three years ago. August has been sick since Thursday with a high fever, and that combined with the holiday meant that I completely forgot to pay attention to what the date was. He was pretty miserable yesterday though, so even had I remembered, it probably wouldn’t have been the best day for a photo shoot anyway. He’s much better today, despite the dramatic pose.

I’ll be taking a photo of August sitting in the Eames rocker and wearing his pin each month until he’s two years old. I also took monthly photos of his older sister, Eleanor, until she turned two.

    What a little sweetheart! Looks just like you! I love the idea of a photo a month…my husband and I don’t have any little ones yet but I think I might try to do this for them when we do! Glad he is feeling better :)

    It’s amazing how quickly he’s gone from a baby to a little boy! Wasn’t it just yesterday you were holding the “Boy” arrow pointing to your belly?!

    How do you prevent the baby from falling off/toddler from climbing off the chair?

      He’s old enough now that he knows how to get down safely from the chair, but when he and his sister were younger, I’d either have someone stand just outside of the frame, or I’d use a remote for my camera and stand close by myself. And as far as climbing down from the chair, I’ve been lucky so far that neither of my kids have tried. Eleanor did briefly when she was nearly two, but she climbed back up too. They both know the routine after a while, and it only takes a few minutes of them sitting to get my monthly shot.

    August is adorable.

    I have the biggest crush on this nook of your library. I love everything about it. Where did you get that ampersand?

      It was from Crate & Barrel, sold as a bookend.
