40 Weeks

Baby Evan was born on Sunday, April 5th and every Sunday since I’ve taken a picture to mark one more week of growth. Since it took 40 weeks (and 5 days) to grow the baby, I thought 40 weeks was a good point to put together a slide show of his life so far.

(Confession: I’m also getting really bad about taking a photo on the right day and figure I’d better do this before I totally forget a week and he notices some day. Like, “Hey Mom, why are weeks 46 and 51 missing from my baby book?” “Well Son, that’s because Mommy didn’t love you as much once she had to live with you for that long.” KIDDING.)

(Warning: I got all fancy with my slideshow so there’s music in the background. Make sure you mute your speakers if you’re someplace where watching baby photo slideshows isn’t part of your job description. Or if country music makes your ears bleed.)

(Also, apparently I’m too stupid to figure out how to embed a slideshow in my site so you’ll have to click through to view it. I’ve spent every nap time for the past TWO DAYS trying to figure this out and it’s time to just call it good enough despite my overwhelming desire to redo the whole thing with a FOURTH program. I also don’t want my kid’s first words to be “work dammit!” So you’ll just have to click.)

    I think the weekly photo slideshow is a really cool idea. Random thought for if you try to do one again, but this is probably only if you have a mac as I don’t know what the video program is on PCs: you could use iMovie or an equivalent to make it as a video and use youtube to have it embed. I think that’s how girlgonechild does her videos/slideshows.

    I loved this!!! We did the same with Reid (weekly pictures that is) although it reads more as a slideshow of me figuring out how to use the new camera :)

    Hey! We totally have the same car seat! I didn’t even know you guys had that one!!! Did you also get it so that you would have 10 cup holders in your back seat????
