Monthly baby photos

Before Scarlett was born, I knew I would want to take a monthly picture of her to document her growth. There are so many cute ideas out there! It was easy to find so many adorable ideas since Nicole at Chic & Cheap Nursery compiled a list of her favorites, as well as some great ideas at Babble.

The felt letters really intrigued me because it seemed really easy, which is very important for me, and not many items would be needed. The only drawback was that I would need to sew. Yes, I know that is the easiest sewing project ever and I would have been able to do it, but I just didn't want to. Instead I just stopped after making and cutting out one layer of the felt letters. They are not professionally cut since I don't have a die cutter or a cricket or any letters to trace. I just had to free hand it and you can see in the imperfections, but I kind of like it like that. Now if only I could take the pictures during the day instead of at night...


  1. i really like the simple letters. and it makes it your own. not just like the other one. so cute. i love them all!

  2. ps thanks for holding down the fort. it's nice to see some posts on here. i have some things i want to post but can't find the time lately.

  3. These are all great ideas but you are right...the handmade letters beat all! I actually can't believe they turned out so good. Who is that darling baby at the end? She should be a model...or at least come see her Gma in Oregon :)
    Love, Debi
