Tuesday photos…

When Mr L was born, all those years ago, on a cold Wednesday in May, we started the tradition of “Wednesday Photos”. Every Wednesday, for the first year, I took a photo of him. I tried to get a picture of him doing something that was new for the week, or capture him in a situation typical of that stage in his development.

So, when Mr A arrived, I began the “Tuesday Photos”. It’s incredible to look back on the past 21 weeks to see how much he’s changed. Here’s his first 20 weeks…


A couple of rules I have – must be in colour (even if the whole thing clashes), must be square, and must be mainly a head shot. I use Picassa to organise my photos, so I add in a caption when I upload the photo just to make a note of what he’s been up to. Then every few weeks I whip out Photoshop, drop the photo into a template I’ve made, change the date, the caption and save. Here’s Week 20’s…

    This is a really neat idea.. I’m going to have to copy. My sister is going to have a baby next Tuesday and this would be nice to do.

    Cool idea – wish I had done that wiht my little one – 2 naps a day at 2 hours! I’m so jealous – LOL – I was lucky to get 30 minutes in 6 hours when she was newborn – forget about naps – LOL. He’s lovely – changed a lot.
