For the first year that Monkey was born I took a weekly photo on a Tuesday as this the day he was born for 6 months. It then swapped to a Friday for the rest of the year as this was my day off from work. I would use the same white chair with various items to keep him entertained as he got older. I religiously kept it up for 52 weeks and had a lovely poster displaying all the photos on his 1st Birthday. It was brilliant looking at how he changed over this time, which as you imagine in the first year is a lot. I will be doing the same with Pip when he arrives.
However it has also got me thinking why did I stop? Committing to one photo a week of Monkey should not be difficult to keep to – I have tried #365 and although my intentions are always good it does tend to slip. So each Friday I am going to post a photo taken at someone during the previous week.
This week I have chosen one taken on New Years Day when we went for a walk to the farm near my in laws house. Everyone needed to blow the cobwebs away from a late night seeing in the New Year. Monkey took his scooter and although at one point he discovered its difficult to stop on a hill unless you do this by means of rolling off onto the grass, in general he did love it.
This was taken under the underpass, all the ones with lovely farm animals or rolling hills in the background are typically blurred. Mind you the weather was also dull and grey! I have also signed up to a new photography course so with any luck my photography skills will also improve over he next 52 weeks!
