Yes, that's what Livia's first 52 weeks on this planet looked like.
In the months leading up to her birth I saw a bunch of bloggers taking really cute weekly and monthly photos of their babies. As a PhotoShop nerd, I thought "well, I can do that!" So, I picked out my favorite elements, created a template and set about taking one photo of Livia each and every week.
I'll be honest: it wasn't easy. Some weeks every photo we took was blurry, the white balance was off, the lighting terrible or the photo impossible to edit. I kept thinking there had to be an easier way.
Around week 40 I said, "I wish there was an app for this." Then, Rob and I kind of looked at each other and said, "Why don't we make the app for this?!"
I'm a little embarrassed that it took two tech geeks 40 weeks to figure out that we were the solution to our own problem. I blame new parent brain!
That's my way of introducing Grow Baby Grow! our baby photo app that was released in the app store a few days ago. Creating an app has been a really fun experience and I'm hoping it does for new parents what Rob and I wished we had those first 52 weeks: a quick, easy way to take an adorable photo of our little one.
It's definitely version 1.0 and we have a ton of ideas for how to improve and add to it in the coming months, but if you are a parent looking for a clever way to capture your baby each week (or month!) then head on over and download our app -- it's only 99cents!
