New moms have some creative methods to record the monthly growth of their babies these days. My niece Paige has been taking monthly photos of her daughter Neelly with a stuffed monkey. Either the monkey is shrinking or Neelly is growing. Paige got the monthly sign kit as a baby shower gift.

The signs were a lot more rudimentary, but Moms back in the "olden days" also recorded the passage of time for their babies.

My Mom took this photo of me at 3 months.

September 1957

I continued the tradition with my kids (True confessions: I wasn't as consistent as I should have been. And I definitely should have put the photos in an album as I went so I wouldn't spend my "golden years" searching through plastic tubs for hidden treasure. Where, oh where, was digital photography when I needed it!?)

How's this for a random mile marker for Brent? I guess "7 Wks" is better than nothing. It appears that Jill also had to have her photo taken that day. We couldn't have Brent being the star of the show without a little equal billing, so she got a 2 3/4 yrs. sign.

I haven't been particularly consistent with photographing our "baby" Millie either. But she seems to be filling the backyard tub a little more these days, and she's losing her baby face.

Let's just say Millie will probably take a back seat in the picture department when a certain little Ladd arrives in January.
