Monthly Baby Onesies

File this one under "I wish I thought to do this before Caroline was born."

I take photos of Caroline each month to document all of her changes. I use a plain white onesie and blocks to spell out her name and how many months old she is. I've seen so many variations on the monthly photos and I can't wait to try out some new ideas when we have a second baby.

A friend of mine is expecting a baby at the end of May. Its their first child, so as an "experienced" mom (I use that term loosely!), I thought it'd be fun to give her special onesies to use for monthly photos.

 The parents-to-be decided not to find out whether they are having a boy or girl, so I stuck with grays and yellow. I'm including some bows in the package just in case they need to girl-ify the photos :)
 I just love how the onesies gradually get larger, although it was a challenge to decide what sizes to buy. I hope they fit every month, although it could provide a few laughs if the baby is a little chunker :)
I'm considering making a few sets of these to sell in my etsy shop. Is this something you would think about purchasing as a special baby gift? They certainly are precious!

Thanks for reading,


  1. Great idea. You should change the file name though. How about " For The Next One" . :)
    Glad you have some time to get back to blogging.

    1. Haha, you're right! I have lots of ideas for when we have baby #2 :)
