How is it that you’re 11 months old already? We’re so excited to be celebrating your 1st birthday soon! This year has been a bliss. You continue to grow and make us fall in love with you more and more each day. You’re quite the character!
Just look at the faces you make these days. I want to eat you up! You have a name for everything – Niko is “gakka”, food is “mum-mum”, daddy is “daaa-daaa” and you call me “naa”. You love to tackle Niko. I think it’s your way to show how much you love him. It melts my heart seeing you both happy and in love with each other. And it makes me think back a year – when Niko would talk to you and feel your kicks. What a difference a year makes!I love taking pictures of you and Niko. I want to capture the special moments of you two being little. And than I draw your monthly silhouette. I love seeing how your face has developed. So much character is hidden in there:)
I’ve decided to draw John Andrew’s monthly silhouette until he turns 12 months old. I started this project with Nikolas as a way to document his growth. I take a picture of John Andrew on the same spot on our couch every month and pair it with his monthly silhouette.
