My little one was crawling at 7 months and when I tried to take his 7 month photo it was impossible. I was completely unsuccessful. So frustrating.

Reply Jessica October 2, 2012 at 11:45 AM | # I’m amazed as well! Alexis must be a very stationary baby. :) Even with my husband to help distract her, our seven month photos have a piece of paper, an old cell phone, and a remote control in the shot- we needed to give her that much “forbidden” stuff to entertain her so she would stop trying to launch herself headfirst off the chair! I realize now I should have started the monthly pictures on the floor. :) Reply Elena @The Art of Making a Baby October 2, 2012 at 12:01 PM | # Yeah she sort of is. She prefers sitting, she doesn’t move around while sleeping too much either. With one exception: if she’s in one of our laps, she won’t stop moving. Otherwise she’ll crawl/sit/crawl/sit. Her “things” are anything that has to do with hands and visual stuff. With those two things it’s non stop stimulation. Which is one of the reason her sleep has been the way it has. Too much too see when she wakes up for even a second. Reply melody October 2, 2012 at 1:44 PM | # She is just soo precious. Great update too! I love readibg about what she is doing each month and all the new things shes learned! Hows cloth diapering going? Are you using them at night or disposables?? Reply Elena @The Art of Making a Baby October 2, 2012 at 4:41 PM | # We switched to full time cloth about a month ago but recently ran into some trouble. So we switched to overnight disposables to see which diapers were causing the issue. So far it’s looking like overnights were too tight in her thighs and rubbing her them raw.

(well, not running, but not too far off!)

I’m curious…..where do you find your templates for the photo displays (or do you make them yourself?) I have a 4 month old and want to make some of these multi-photo displays and print them out. Thanks…love your blog :) Reply Elena @The Art of Making a Baby October 14, 2012 at 7:33 AM | # I make them myself in Lightroom :) Reply Leave a comment Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
