Now she’s an old pro – working that pin and Eames rocker. Reply Audrie September 29, 2009 at 2:29 pm Can’t believe she’s already 5 mths! Beautiful little girl :) Reply T. September 29, 2009 at 3:03 pm she’s so big! :o Reply Jenny V. September 29, 2009 at 3:16 pm What a sweetheart!! Reply Eugénie September 29, 2009 at 3:56 pm Already five months ! She looks adorable. Reply Jazmin Espinal September 29, 2009 at 4:06 pm Oh my how she’s grown. Nicole, you have a lovely daughter and I love the Eames rocker series. Personally, I’d love to see her a photo of Eleanor in the Eames rocker each year until she’s an adult. Wouldn’t it be lovely to see her at 15 sitting on the same chair? I think it’s a spectacular way to chronicle her youth. – Jazmin Reply puck September 29, 2009 at 4:15 pm She is adorable as always. I wish I had done this with my boys. My youngest is nearly 2 1/2 and I’d have to cobble it together. This is the best idea ever. I KNOW I said I wouldn’t try again for a girl, but…. Reply Kasey at Thrifty Little Blog September 29, 2009 at 4:21 pm Wow, where did the month go?! She’s getting so big! Reply Katie M September 29, 2009 at 4:34 pm Gosh she is cute cute cute! Love those chubby legs! :) Reply Melanye K September 29, 2009 at 4:42 pm what a super cutie!! i love her little chubby legs :D Reply Olivia M. September 29, 2009 at 4:45 pm What a beautiful little girl!!! and that room is lovely too. Reply girlysmack September 29, 2009 at 5:23 pm She looks more like you now! Reply Making it Lovely September 30, 2009 at 1:07 pm I think so too! Reply Viv September 29, 2009 at 5:57 pm Look at that smile! This is such a great idea. Reply Jessica September 29, 2009 at 6:43 pm So stinkin cute! And we got a smile in this one :-) Reply Rija September 29, 2009 at 7:02 pm Cuter by the minute!! Reply Kerry September 29, 2009 at 7:50 pm I found your blog when you were pregnant, and your daughter was born just a month before mine. And she’s gorgeous, cuter by the month. I love her little smile there. And I’m wondering if she still sleeps through the night? My daughter’s great sleeping habits spontaneously combusted at about 3 months, and it’s been a rough ride since. I’m not worrying too much about it, however, because any new “habits” I teach, she’ll only grow out of anyway. But is there anything new you’re doing now that she’s older? Reply Marissa September 29, 2009 at 8:25 pm WHAT A SQUISH MUFFIN! Reply Amber M September 29, 2009 at 9:12 pm She is BEAUTIFUL! I hope if I have a girl she is as sweet and adorable as she is! Reply Paula September 29, 2009 at 9:17 pm this is simply delightful! Reply Allison September 29, 2009 at 10:40 pm i love these posts. i look forward to them every month. it is such a cool idea to take a picture of eleanor in the same place each time. Reply Megan September 29, 2009 at 11:11 pm Oh my goodness! What a cute chunka-lunka of love! Reply Fiona September 30, 2009 at 1:25 am It is definitely remarkable seeing how the little one is growing up day by day, month by month. She is totally cute! I love the smile on her fifth month! Reply Cherish September 30, 2009 at 1:55 am Cuter and cuter by the second. That’s a great idea!!! I love it. Not enough parents take pictures of their kids, And to have a blog of them, they’re part of you forever. Reply Leanne September 30, 2009 at 3:39 am Wow, how she has grown. Such a cutie! What a cute little grin. Reply Tee September 30, 2009 at 7:38 am Adorable! They grow too quickly. Reply Melissa September 30, 2009 at 8:04 am Wow she is getting so big – such a cutie! Reply Corie September 30, 2009 at 9:25 am Nicole, I can’t believe Eleanor’s already 5 months old! Time goes by TOO fast. She looks beautiful, and it’s clear that motherhood comes just as naturally to you as decorating! Reply Justina September 30, 2009 at 10:17 am Ohhh, they grow so fast don’t they! Anyway, its a fantastic idea you have there, photographing her in the same chair every month. :) Happy 5 month birthday, Eleanor! Reply becky September 30, 2009 at 10:35 am Oh. My. Gosh.!!! It figures you would have a baby who matches your lovely living room :) She’s so darling! becky Reply Vanessa September 30, 2009 at 10:41 am Yay, my favorite day of the month! I’m sure you’re already documenting this somewhere else but have you considered highlighting the new developments she makes during the month in these posts? “This past month Eleanor rolled over, held herself up, had her first tooth, said her first word, etc., etc.?” Thought it might be really sweet :) Though I understand these are big events and they might require their own posts altogether! Reply kristin September 30, 2009 at 12:42 pm dude! i just realized she’s wearing the cute onesie in each photo. did you get one for each- 1-3m, 3-6m, and so-forth? it’s like a mystery! Reply Making it Lovely September 30, 2009 at 1:07 pm Ha! Yes, I bought the same onesie (from Old Navy) in various sizes. Then I’ll have E in the same dress from 13-24 months. :) Reply NY, NY September 30, 2009 at 1:02 pm Love the sly little smile in this one, like she knows we’re all going to plotz over her. he he. Reply Kate September 30, 2009 at 2:51 pm These pictures are great! I was wondering if you have any creative plans for them when one year is complete. I’ve been doing this with my son (who’s now almost ten months!) and I would love to send the photos to family and friends in an interesting format, but I have yet to come up with anything good…ideas? Reply Crystal September 30, 2009 at 3:59 pm Adorable!! She’s smiling Reply Robin September 30, 2009 at 5:31 pm oh gosh, I never post, but she is SO BEAUTIFUL, I just had to say so. What a lovely expression and I bet you will continue to see this exact expression often in years to come. There she is! Her personality sparkles in this photo! Reply Kelly September 30, 2009 at 6:08 pm She is absolutely beautiful. Reply Barbara Brazil September 30, 2009 at 8:16 pm She is adorable and starts to looks after her father! Sweet! Reply danyelle September 30, 2009 at 9:15 pm oh, that eleanor. she’s a dolly. Reply Laurie September 30, 2009 at 9:17 pm She is about as cute as it gets and I’m a sucker for those chubby little legs! Reply Amber September 30, 2009 at 9:22 pm Sheesh! Your daughter totally (like! totally!) looks like you. P.S. Your honeycomb printed pillow is cute! Reply Mucha Muchacha September 30, 2009 at 11:22 pm She is so beautiful! Reply Nikki October 1, 2009 at 12:26 am I think she is a spectacular mix of the both of you! She looks simply sprightly. Reply Colette October 1, 2009 at 8:19 am Soooo cute! My son was born a week after her- so her monthly photo has totally inspired me to do the same thing. Now, if only I had a funky rocker instead of a ratty old sofa covered by an old sheet so that spit-up doesn’t ruin it…. Reply Nuit October 1, 2009 at 9:18 am Already!!? wow! time really flies! I remember posting about your porch rug once and how great it was that you were able to get it done while VERY pregnant!!! I just love how Eleanor seems to love her monthly photo shoot, she knows the deal now and seems very confortable having her picture taken, so precious Nicole, congrats! Reply laurennicolelove.com October 1, 2009 at 10:05 am wow I can’t believe I just now found your blog. Absolutely love it. And I wish my mother had done this type of series with me when I was a little girl…will definitely be doing it when I have one. :) :) lovelove. – lauren xoxo laurennicolelove.blogspot.com Reply Averill October 1, 2009 at 10:49 am Can’t believe it’s been 5 months already…. Reply Sara October 1, 2009 at 10:52 am She is getting so big. If I had children, I would want one just like her. Her eyes are so expressive! Reply Sheena Miller October 1, 2009 at 4:47 pm what a beautiful little girl! Reply Eileen October 1, 2009 at 7:36 pm Nicole she looks just like YOU! Too cute!

Reply Down Pillow October 3, 2009 at 11:21 pm I love her mischevious smile in this – sooo adorable :) Reply Gina October 8, 2009 at 1:39 pm Wow, she is such a little doll!! I love your idea of taking her monthly picture in the same Eames chair. You can really see her grow! What do you plan on doing with the photos after she turns two? Are you going to create some sort of photo collage?
