A year in pictures.

I need your help. When Carter was born, a friend bought us a beautiful Pottery Barn 12 month frame to put up in his room. Me, being the horrible mom that I am, hasn't put it up yet. I could use the excuse that I was waiting for 12 months worth of pictures, but I'd be lying. I was just being lazy.

So.... I want to get this project done so that I am able to display the frame/pictures at Carter's birthday party. {Yay for motivation and a deadline!} I'll start by showing you the beautiful frame:
For the big picture {the 5x7} as of now, I have his newborn hospital picture, but I think I might change it to one of his 10 month pro pictures {Part I & Part II}that Erin took for us. I just LOVE them.

Now I need to figure out what pictures to put in each "month" of the frame. I've narrowed it down pretty far {I'm so proud of myself... it took me soooo long to do it!} but I need your help to pick the pictures! Here we go...

Month 1:
Picture 1- I love this pic, but since the frame takes vertical wallet-size pictures, his face gets cut off a bit.

Picture 2- from OBX last year =)
Month 2:
Picture 1-
Picture 2- which is one of my favorites... Month 3:
This one was easy... I'm definitely using this pic!Month 4:
Easy as well... I love my little monkey.Month 5:
Picture 1- My little turkey on Thanksgiving...Picture 2- First time in his big boy high chair...Month 6:
Picture 1- My favorite mug shot...Picture 2- In his new hat...Month 7:
Picture 1- fun with daddy...Picture 2- My little leprechaun... (I think I'm leaning towards this one)Month 8:
Easy peasy... love this one.Month 9:
I love this pic, but my only concern with it is that he is wearing the same shirt as his 10 month pro pictures. Do you think I should use it anyway? They're small wallet-sized pics so I doubt anyone will notice {except me every time I look at it!}
Month 10:
One of my favorite pics.... ever! I love it in B&W, but I'm using it in color so that it will match the rest of the frame...Month 11:
Picture 1- I really can't decide between these 3 pictures!!!Picture 2-Picture 3-Month 12:
I'm going to put a picture from Carter's birthday party in this slot, but for now... Phillies!
The polls are on the side of the blog. Feel free to leave a comment as well!! Thanks so much for your help with this =) I have to order all the pictures by this Friday at the latest!!! I can't believe his birthday & party are a week from Saturday. OMG...

So cute! I like the idea of using pictures from the months that he also celebrated his 1st holidays. Like Halloween, Thanksgiving and St. Patty's. That frame is such a nice way to display his 1st year :)
