As it is, I really love to dress up, and when I had a baby, I was honestly wishing for a baby girl in the hopes of dressing her up and wearing twinning clothes with her. When I found out I was having a baby boy, I was still as excited but I knew then, that I will have to be more creative when it comes to dressing up my son.
Monthly baby milestone photos were everywhere on my pinterest feed and boy, was I so excited to start Daniel's monthly pictorial. Of course I wanted to do a professional shoot for my son, but just the hassle of leaving the house every month to do it was just too much for the lazy mom in me back then. Plus its way more expensive!
So I decided to DIY his monthly milestone shoots, and it was still not as easy as I thought it would be! The preparations, the costumes, getting him in a good mood takes so much effort - and we did these every month! But no regrets at all, looking at all his photos is just way too priceless!
Daniel's first ever shoot - the NEWBORN phase was professionally taken, we wanted to go to a studio for his monthly milestone but from here, we realized it would be better for us to do it at home on a DIY mode.

Okay, so I just got teary eyed after seeing all of Daniel's monthly photos and our photos together from last year and this year. Seeing how fast this little man grows up makes me both sad and excited at this time. We can never go back to these stages of him but at least, we have all these photos in such adorable costumes to look back to!
So will I still make him wear costumes every year? or rather, will we both be dressing up as some character's each year? Definitely! Next year, we'll probably be Aladdin and Jasmine! I'll most likely cry when the time comes he'll tell me "Mom I don't wanna wear silly costumes anymore"
For now, this momma will make the most out of my son's "baby stage" and make him wear all the cute costumes I can think of!
