Hi, friends! My tiny schmooopips, Fay, turns one today so I figured it was high time I come out of this postpartum hiatus from writing to honor this girl’s birthday…
Among a multitude of other feelings I’m tackling at the thought of my little baby growing up, I am sitting here pretty darn proud of myself that I actually managed to take a weekly picture of her every week: on Tuesday, without fail, never missed a week. Truly incredible; I’m honestly gobsmacked.
I remember scrambling on Week 1 to figure out what I was going to do as a picture set-up, one I could actually replicate with ease every week. I wound up using the quilt my mom made for Fay as the background and a Jellycat bunny stuffie (his name is “Woody”) for size comparison.
I posted everything weekly on Instagram under the hashtag #FayWeekByWeek — but you can view all 52 of them here, in order…
Ha, can you tell when we moved out of our dark apartment and into a house with better light? (Psst… it was Week 19.)
I’ve toyed with the idea of continuing this on a monthly basis (#FayMonthByMonth??), but I am fairly confident I won’t be able to maintain it. Better that I ride the wave of accomplishment with these 52 weeks and quit while I’m ahead. ;)
Happy Birthday, Faybits! We love you more than anything in the world and cannot wait for many more birthdays!! <3
