Before Edie was born I really wanted to do something like this, a photo every day to watch development in extra slow progress, in a way, savouring every moment when they go much too fast in the first year.
I haven't managed to get a photo every single day, but looking at the dates on my camera I've been able to work out how old Edie would've been when a picture was taken. And late is never too late so here's how she's growing so far...
Day 1 and just minutes old, she looks so alert and wise and not at all troubled by the birth!
Day 2, looking more like a sleepy newborn. Here she is in her moses basket in the days before she took over our bed
Day 3 and on our bed
Day 5, waiting for the midwife to come and do the evil heel prick test
Day 7, looking like she has a giant leg under her pyjamas!
Day 10, back in the moses basket but only whilst changing the milky big bed!
Day 11, out of the bath and on to the boob
Day 13, eyes begin to open lots more
Day 17, still smaller than Kiki cat
Day 43, not looking impressed at the gap between pictures!
Day 44 with cousin Violet (5 months)
Day 49, stayin' up late
Day 50, early night
Day 51, crashed out with daddy
Day 52, why so serious?
Day 60 - today, 2 minutes ago
I do intend to keep this up, I really really do!!
