52 Weeks of Jackson

I found the idea to do this weekly photo project over here at I thought it would be so fun to try, and I guess it was for the most part. I'm glad I did it, but I'm glad its over as well. LOL. It was not an easy project to keep up with, I will tell you that. For the first couple weeks I had to try hard to keep him happy and not crying for his weekly picture. Then once we finally got in the groove of it, he started rolling over, :-( Once he learned to roll over, that made this weekly photo session far more of a challenge and with every new skill (crawling, walking) it got harder and harder. Keeping him still long enough for me to get a picture was next to impossible. Thank goodness for my new dslr. It takes much faster photos than my old point and shoot. ☺

I plan on adding these photos into a scrapbook or photo album of some sort and my sister is in the process of making him a quilt using the fabric from each week. ☺ I can't wait til its done. I also plan on scaling back now and just taking a monthly picture from now on. I'm not sure if I'll use fabric or just sit him in the same chair each week, but I'll keep posting his stats monthly with a few pictures for you to see how he's growing.

So without further adieu... here are weeks 1 and 52 side by side for comparison, and all of the rest of the weeks in between!!
