The day will come when you dress up your baby (out of boredom, exhaustion or for big laughs). From bows and beanies to sunglasses and Wu-Tang onesies, accessorize away and break out that camera.

5. #sleepinglikeababy #sleepingbeauty

If only little ones understood the meaning of “sleeping like a baby.” When baby finally dozes off, snap a pic of that sweet, serene, non-howling face. And then sneak away and take your own nap.

6. #firstfood #lookatthatface #ihatecarrots

From baby food to finger food, don’t miss that first face of disgust (or delight). It’s fun to look back and see how kids’ favorite flavors change over time, and a messy face makes an awesome photo.happy baby cc Julie Seguss

Of course, the baby selfie. Your baby will soon take better selfies than you do. So say cheese now! The sillier the better.

You’ve got a walker! The sheer glee on baby’s face will make each photo. And get ready, because that baby just got a whole lot faster and harder to photograph.

11. #firstbirthday #IamOne #smashcake

The cake smash makes for great before and after photos! You’ll want to remember that sweet outfit before it’s covered in icing. Then let your little one year old smash and smear while you keep snapping away.  mombaby cc KJMcWilliams
