You've Got A Friend in Me...

Before Zachary was born, I had seen in several Parents magazines about documenting your child's growth each month by some form or fashion. One idea I saw was where a Mom used Puff Paint and decorated a plain onesie each month with her child's weight, length, and age. I thought that was cute, but too much like work! As Zachary was approaching his 1 month birthday, we still had not decided how we were going to document his growth each week. Well, don't know if I've blogged about this or not, but Zachary's nursey is a Toy Story nursery. Toy Story is his Daddy's most favorite movie of all time, so that's how we got the idea. Anyway, at one of his baby showers he received a Woody doll to put his in nursery on his toy shelves. Daddy thought using Woody would be a great way to show how he has grown each month, and I must say, it turned out to be a great idea. Not only has it shown how he is growing in size, but in ability, too! We actually have taken several pictures each month, but I've just selected one to show. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we have!

I am so glad you did that! I never even thought to do something like that!! I have tons of pictures of Hudson and some on the month mark but nothing special. I wish I would have done something like that. So cute:)

Did you ever see mine??


Thanks for your comment on my blog, by the way! I added your blog to my Google Reader. :)

By the way, you DO know, of course, that Toy Story is set to be re-released in theaters in 3D in October, then TS2 (3D) in January, and then TS3 (3D) comes out next summer. SOOOOOO EXCITED!!
