What’s On Daddy’s Phone

Dear Baby W,
Your Daddy’s phone is like a treasure chest of memories.
Because he has had the phone since the beginning of time.
And because he has taken photos of nearly every moment in our lives
for the last few years.
And for the first time ever,
I figured out how to download all 1167 of those photos {for reals, that’s how many pictures he had}.  Here are a few of the memories that made me smile.
The first picture your Dad took on his new phone–I had the flu, and I was very contagious. The doctor made me wear this for a week. This is a year before you were born.

I cam home from work to find your Dad sportin this hair do.
Sometimes he forgets to spike the parts that he can’t see.

Later that week, I came home from work and your sweet Daddy surprised me with a new fun car!  Three weeks later I was pregnant with you, and too sick to drive. Then you were born and I traded in my convertible for an SUV.
First signs of Baby bump.
{now my tummy is 5 times bumpier, and no baby in there–but you were so worth it, my little man}

I painted your nursery and got excited for you to arrive.

And for some reason I envisioned you in sailor outfits everyday–that never happened, your welcome.

When I was 5 months pregnant, I had a scary mole removed from my tummy.
Now mommy has a big ole scar.
And then BAM, I was as big as a house.
You were a mondo baby, for such a shorty Momma.

Our first family picture.

You were the cutest little froggy baby.

You had to lay in the sun for 4 hours a day.

  

You sucked on your Daddy’s finger right after you came out of my tummy.
This picture reminds me of how tiny you were, and how tired I was.

Mommy Baby snuggle time.

We tortured you for your infant photo shoot.

Smoochy lips.

You and your best friend, LJ.

Halloween monkey baby. You hated me for this costume.

Where’s Waldo.

The only time you were ever peaceful in Church.

You never liked a binkie.

I am so grateful your Daddy captured these precious memories.
And I love you to infinity and beyond.
love, Momma

    what a CUTE baby. im almost positive my hubs has over 1,000 photos on his phone as well… i need to sit down and download those too – great idea.

    btw – did you LOVE the bug? we are currently considering cars for my teen {gasp} and I {selfishly} want it to be something that i wouldnt mind driving… since i drive a mac truck {ok not really but some days it feels like it – Tahoe} the bug looks fun 😉

    Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful, funny, and endearing photos! They reminded me of memories of my sweet little guy, too. Time goes by so quickly, looking back…doesn't it? My 5' pregnancy photos may disagree, but it was DEFINITELY worth it! Love the photo of Wesley in the toy box with his stuffed animals. And the picture with the quote on his nursery. I love coming across photos like these, that I hadn't seen in some time. Brings back memories like it was "just yesterday". 🙂

    Baby W still looks exactly the same as when he was still a teeny newborn!

    And can I just say that you were the most adorable preggo? Your belly is comical, because the rest of you is so TINY and your bump was HUGE! You lucky duck, your family is precious.

    Such sweet pictures! I LOVE looking through pictures. I had a scary mole taken off my stomach while pregnant too… mine was done immediately after I had my baby though because I found out about it within weeks of delivery… {as in while on the c-sec operating table.} But now I call him "My little lifesaver" and kiss him a million times a day… which I would do anyway 🙂
    xo,
