Welcome, Jacob's Birth Month // His First Year in Pictures

I’ve been working this last year to get some of our history on the blog, and since I didn’t blog when Jacob was a baby, I knew that I wanted to share some photos of his first year of life.  Many of you have been following along with me for this last year since I started blogging, and you’ve probably never even seen his squishy newborn cuteness!

In honor of his birthday month, I present to you, Jacob’s first year of life in pictures.  Warning – picture overload!  Although, aren’t all of my posts picture overloads?  #Oops

This first set was taken in the hospital when he was just a couple of days old.  His lips were frozen in a permanent duck face for the entire first week of his life.  Lol.

We then had some newborn pictures captured when he was a month and a half old by the same photographer who did our wedding.

Just after his five months birthday, our photographer captured his “heads up” session.  That last one of him is probably my very favorite picture of him of all time.  He looks like he could be in a magazine.  Look at those blue eyes, that perfect button nose, and those big juicy lips!

One day shy of his eight month birthday, our photographer did his “sit up” shoot and these pictures still crack me up to this day.  Why she had him in pot, I will never know, but I laugh every single time I see them.

We had to wait until he was over thirteen months old to do his “stand up” session because he took his sweet time learning to stand up.  Hehe.

We chose our favorite photo from each shoot and had a panel made to hang in our formal dining room.  That way we can remember all of the stages of our sweet baby’s first year!

In addition to the oodles of professional photos we had made, I also documented his monthly growth by snapping a few pics on the 23rd of each month.

And finally, some of my favorite shots… the ones that we snapped during his first weeks at home.  Just look at that sweet face!

Thanks for indulging me today as I mentally prepare to have a five year old in the house later this week.  Sigh.
