A Woman in her Thirties is a Year... in Bunnies

My Spunkin turns one year old this week. Let the tear-filled posts lamenting the passage of time commence... now.

At my baby shower, K suggested that take a picture every month of Anna's life for the first year next to a stuffed animal to track her growth. Believe me when I say that it is crazy-- Ubeki-beki-beki-stan crazy-- that I actually did it. The animal I chose was the pink bunny from PB that L picked out for AB the day we found out it was a girl. Please forgive the shoddy photography-- a woman in her thirties is working on her camera skills.

Months 1-2
A woman in her thirties doesn't make excuses, but let me just say that breastfeeding was all-encompassing for me for a very long time. Sorry about that. So the first pic doesn't include the bunny, but it does include a Santa hat, which is equally cute if I do say so myself.

Month 12 (Shirt from T- in my next life, I'm going to be super thoughtful like my friends)
I'll add another one from today, since it's so darn cute:

So there you have it: A year in bunnies. You can stop growing now, Anna B. Thanks.


  1. I'm dying. I love so much that you did this!! What an amazing little girl you're raising. Happy birthday, AB, We love you!!

  2. Absolutely brilliant!!! What a treasure to have done this. I say keep it up for the rest of her life... even if just on a yearly basis. Have a wonderful birthday, Anna, and don't mind your Mommy if she cries a bit at this milestone. It's hard on us women in our thirties to see our babies growing up so fast!

  3. I love this post!!! Happy Birthday, Anna Banana!!

  4. Oh, I am sooo happy you did that! Look at all the smiles in months 4 and 5! And holy heck, did she grow in month 6 because she looks huge in month 7.

    Happy Birthday Anna!!!

    Love, All of Us

  5. She is soooo cute! They grow up so fast.
