The Incredible Shrinking Bear



This week Wednesday's Walk I'm posting the pictures that my mom took of Maddie every month until she was 12 months old. If you want to know how to paricipate in Wendesday's Walk down memory lane click on the button above.
First off, my brother Jason made that bear at Build A Bear that he named "Pinky" for Maddie the day that she was born. My mom took a picture of her next to the bear every month. She missed 9 and 11 months though. She also just finished a scrapbook page and when you put the pictures back to back like they are on the scrapbook page it really does look like the bear is shrinking! My mom had originally bought a big Minnie Mouse to take the pictures with her but she thought the bear would have more of a meaning behind it.
It still seems like yesterday my baby girl was that little red-nosed peanut that I had just brought home from the hospital in her pink gown and bonnet. At birth she was 6.6lbs and 19 1/2inches long. At 12 months she was 21lbs. and 31inches long.

Monica, these pictures of Madison with the bear are so cute.

It is amazing how fast babies grow,...and you can really notice it through looking at these pictures with the baby and the bear!

Cute idea.

So sweet ! I love the idea of having the bear beside her in each pic to show how she grows! So cute...and she is just beautiful. I absolutely love her curls. It was nice to meet you on this Wednesdays Walk!

The incredible shrinking bear! :)
Maddie is adorable. That was a great idea to do that - take pictures every month with the same bear. I wish I would have thought of that.
