I have not published a 1 Photo, 1 Histoire for ages! I decided that 2017 will be the perfect time to have some changes on the blog. I am starting a new series about baby and kids fashion. The first post of the series is still live with a giveaway, so make sure that you check it out! The prize is really nice so don’t miss it out! Also, I will try to post more pictures’ posts with Baba! Maybe I should try Living Arrows? To kick off the year and get prepared for it, today is a special photos post. Grumpy Boyfriend and I have created some personalised calendars to take back to France with us at Christmas. It was the perfect present for my family. I did not use any picture editor online. Those are 12 raw moments from 2016. Yeah! Baba is going to turn 1 year old later this month! I can’t believe it! So here are 12 photos, 12 histoires from the life of Baba in 2016! Hope you enjoy it!
This is one of the first ever photos of Baba. Grumpy Boyfriend took it at the hospital. It was literally taken minutes after his birth. The nurses had just washed him and my mum helped them dressing him up in a pair of blue PJs she brought from France. I was probably still under the shock and recovering from it all! Having said that, I would do it again tomorrow! Sorry if I am a bit sentimental! I can’t believe how small mon bébé looks on this pic…
This picture was taken while some family visited us. I could not resist but add it to our calendar. I just love his smile and his cheeky look! He definitely gets it from his dad! Everywhere I go, people always said that he is the spitting image of his papa. I would like to think that Baba has my mouth! He will have my bad mood for sure. Hurrah! I contributed towards something… J’adore aussi the outfit with stripes. So Frenchie! ?
This shot is just pure happiness! Yet, another Frenchie outfit! One of my favourite ones he used to wear all the times. Baba’s cousins came to the house and they brought this mat as a present. He loved it so much! He used to spend ages on his back kicking his legs to make some music! Now, there is no way he would stay still in this position. He is crawling everywhere, exploring the world, especially dangerous things such as plugs and the kitchen floor! And he is obsessed with standing up at the minute!
My mum and my niece came to London at the end of the month and I met them at Selfridges where we had some brunch. I remember the amazement in my niece’s eyes when she saw le bébé for the first time. Bien sûr, she wanted to hold Baba for a pic. He looks so big in here! I just love his expression! He already knew well the camera!
One Sunday when Grumpy Boyfriend and I took Baba for a walk around a local park. It’s a gorgeous place where you have so many things to see, especially for a baby! Baba looks very serious. Around that time, people were always saying that he looked like Churchill. Probably because he was bold and had a round face!
It’s rare that I like seeing a picture of myself. This one is l’exception parfaite! Just a simple moment captured at home. I have no makeup on, my hair is just done quickly and it’s cuddles’ time! Baba looks like he would not mind getting away! I think he will be very independent like his Papa but sometimes, he loves a cuddle too!
This photo was taken during our holiday in Norfolk. We went for a low-key break this year. I didn’t want to stress out about taking a plane and travelling too far. Mais we had such a great time! Look at him having fun with Papa!
Another day at the park with us. It was taken just days before his heart operation. A very difficult time for us! But hopefully, it is all over now. He was so happy to look at other children playing around. Baba loves going out and discovering the world!
The Frenchie Mummy Blog really went up a gear that month and we published some great reviews. After having recovered from his operation, routines were back in place slowly! We selected this photo because it just shows so well the little person he is! I love the colour of this outfit too!
I caught him after a nap here. He was obviously half asleep! ? I love his face. ‘What on earth are you doing Maman?!’ After his nap, we normally have some food and I was just taking pictures! Another shot from that day was selected to be on the GroBaby Wall of Fame 2016. I could not have been happier!
We became a Nûby Brand Ambassador and it was l’excuse parfaite to get a great memory! We have two monkeys here! Not that Baba minds me saying that really! Weaning was not always easy but we are fine with it now!
I just love this outfit so much! Another time Baba was posing for me as I started a new series ‘Baba Fashionista’ with a giveaway! It was in our bedroom and I was just snapping while he was moving around like a crazy abeille! It is getting more and more difficult to take a photo as he can’t stay still! But it’s so nice to see how he is growing. Baba definitely looks more and more like me! He islike un ange in here! He is not!
Pardon if this post 12 photos, 12 histoires was a bit self-indulgent. I reckon I will love looking back at this post in some years. Just to remember all those amazing moments with Baba. You know, before he turns into a terrible toddler or moody teen! I also wrote a blogging reflection on 2016 and what the Frenchie Mummy Blog brought us but today is just a family post!
Did you write a summary post like that with your little ones? Did you share some important moments from 2016? Or are you planning on publishing more pictures of your child(ren)? I am looking forward to reading it all!
