I remember my mom thinking it was very ambitious of me to take weekly photos of Jacob for his first year, and honestly, I didn’t know if I would keep it up or not…but I am so glad I did.  We are rapidly approaching Jacob’s 1st birthday and before that day comes and we take our last weekly picture with the elephant and giraffe, I figured I should get caught up with posting the past month of photos.

I am so thankful that Jacob loves my camera (or his silly dad behind me making him laugh).  Most of the time when he sees my camera he sits up a little straighter and flashes a smile, even when there is no one else around to grab his attention he is really good at flirting with the camera (probably because I’ve had it in his face since the day he was born!)  We’ve never had a problem getting these weekly pictures, until…his 11 month one…Jacob did NOT want to sit still and kept trying to make a break for it.

49 wks - 5020ed50 weeks

50 wks - 5801edAnd doing his touchdown pose for 51 weeks 51 wks - 5833ed

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!  I have lots more pictures to share from all the holiday fun and soon Jacob’s birthday, so I’ll be back soon.
