One month down and five weeks tomorrow. On Friday, January 23, 2015 or a little baby Mo reached his one-month mark. In this day and age it is quite common for parents, moms especially, to post and share a monthly update of their baby on Instagram.

Some families choose to show their baby with monthly stickers on a onesie or even screenprinted onesies with each month on them. Others choose to show their baby sitting in the same chair on the same blanket or with the same stuffed animal to demonstrate and show the babies growth and development in comparison to the object.

Since I purchased the Kara Burke Frenchie dog pillow a couple weeks back (included in my favorite items for newborn post here) I decided to have that be the prop that I use for these monthly photos with Mo. Blog followers can look forward to these photos and I will include outfit details on each as well. Not that you all care a whole lot about it, but since you opted in and have chosen to read through my rants and raves about motherhood I think it's only appropriate. I am however adding a few more fave photos, in no particular order, from the first month.

In other dog pillow news I am waiting for the right time/ reason to get a dog pillow made of our dog Baron to add to Mo's small but growing animal collection.

On to the outfit details. Mo is wearing striped one piece and booties from Little Hip Squeaks. A gift from our friends in San Francisco. Lucky for us, sad for you it looks like these cute items are sold out!
