You’re probably taking pictures of your baby every day, but a time-lapse style monthly mash-up is a cool keepsake that’ll help you see how fast your baby grows in the first year. We found eight ideas that’ll blow you away. The key is to pick an element and stick to it, like marking the months with a matching number of apples, or using the same suitcase to show how big Baby is getting. It might seem unnecessary and time consuming, but no one regrets the outcome and they’re perfect to put on display at Baby’s first birthday party.

This image is a slam dunk for newborn photo shoots, so keep the momentum going! We'd start with a full size basketball (or your favorite sports ball) for visual oomph, and dress baby in knee high socks and a sweat band (like these on Etsy) for extra cuteness.
