I never realized when my son was born that taking and sending pictures would be such a big deal. The first year, we had professional photos taken every 3 months. Since then, we've had professional photos taken every year around his birthday. He also has school pictures taken twice a year. Gulp! That's a lot of pictures!
I dutifully send them to friends and family - what they do with them I never know. In hindsight, I would've given close friends and family a frame with BB's first picture and then just sent the same size photo from then on so they could update the frame. Parent fail.
In hindsight hindsight, I specifically would've bought them this great, two-sided frame from IKEA. One side is BB's current photo, the other a "self-portrait". He drew himself as a bug in this particular version. In another, he drew himself as an egg. What can I say? He's 4.
only downside is that it fits 4x6 photos and professional photos don't
come in that side. That's where the white matte came in!
We've made 2 so far as gifts (better late than never for good ideas) and I totally want one for myself. It'll be fun to see his "self-portraits" evolve and change depending on his mood and age.
