I started this monthly project when Philip was just one week new. I made myself a few simple rules. ONE: take a photo every month. TWO: document his weight, height and accomplishments. THREE: he would wear stripes (for no particular reason other than I love stripes). This project is not technically perfect. In fact the light is often terrible, but the memory... now that is perfect. Today Philip turned one year old and when I look back on that one week old photo my heart bursts with happiness. He brought a completeness to our family that I didn't even realize was missing. <3 Congratulations little man on your first trip around the sun. Mommy and Daddy love you so much!
