Instagram has given me a place to see all of the cute, new baby things and I wish I were having another baby all over again. (PS. Only in fleeting, dream-like thoughts, not in reality.) One trend I love is milestone blankets. Capturing this monthly photo takes very little effort to set up.
Step 1: Lay out the milestone blanket. Step 2: Place baby on top of the milestone blanket. Step 3: Indicate what month your baby is in with some kind of hoop or arrow. Unless this is not your first child, in which you would then use the tools on your phone to circle said month at a later time because you either can’t remember or older children have turned the hoop into a toy. Your baby can be 6ish months, too. No one’s grading you on precision.
Even if your baby is halfway on, halfway off their milestone blanket because they’ve learned how to crawl, you get a wonderful reminder of how much they grow in that first year.
