Who could resist this new linky by Shell at Things I Can’t Say?

Rockin’ the Baby follows the hugely successful Rockin’ The Bump with over 200 Mamas showing off their baby bumps! And all you have to do is link up a favorite baby picture.

I have so many pictures of my Monkey to choose from, so I’ll spare you and share with you my absolute favorites from the early days.

Chubby-cheeked goodness, 4 days old, January 1, 2010

 

“Eye” see you, 5 days old, January 2, 2010

 

The first photo of us that I love, 5 days old, January 2, 2010

 

Showing a healthy attitude, 1 week old, January 5, 2010

(I posted this before way back in April, but it’s too good not to share again!)

Do you have a favorite baby picture you want to show off? Link up now! Link is open til July 18.

    Yummy, yummy baby. Love those shots!

    • July 12, 2011 Alison

      Thanks Ali! He is nom worthy indeed.

  • July 12, 2011 jackie

    Aw, so adorable!

      Thank you Jackie!

    Love that last one. My daughter really liked showing off her middle finger as a baby, too. It was hilarious. I miss that.

      It is pretty funny. Now that she’s older, I guess it would be inappropriate to ask her to show the finger again while you take a picture. A pity, it would have been funny πŸ™‚

    So sweet and fuzzy! And you rock that short hair, mama!

      Thank you! I do miss the short hair, but I don’t have time to maintain it now!

  • July 12, 2011 Ado

    Oh my God how adorable !!!! I love all of these photos but my favorite is “The Eye.” What an incredible, incredible shot. Great photography (but what a cute subject you had to work w.) Love the shirt too – I’m New Here. So cute!

    • July 12, 2011 Alison

      Thank you Ado! The ‘Eye’ is one of my absolute favorites of him. I wish I could take credit for the photography but I can’t. My brother-in-law snapped all these (except for the one with me in it) with his fancy-schmancy SLR camera.

      I have kept that onesie πŸ™‚

  • July 12, 2011 Leighann

  • July 12, 2011 Mel

    So adorable. I LOVE the middle finger shot. I bet he meant it too πŸ™‚ and that shot of the 2 of you is fantastic. It’s hard to get a good mom and newborn shot because it is hard to feel pretty after giving birth, but you look gorgeous. Anyway, awesome pictures!

    • July 12, 2011 Alison

      Thank you!! I was run ragged by day 5 but cleaned up when we were getting discharged from the hospital – which is why I consented to pictures πŸ™‚

      I believe he meant the finger shot too – we were trying to get a picture fit for his passport, can you believe it. I think he got pissed off with us lol

  • July 13, 2011 Stasha

    Monkey is so cute. He still has the same lovely eyes. Incredible how easy it is to see the resemblance with early baby photos,even when they look completely different in years time.
    Stasha recently wrote…Monday ListiclesMy Profile

    • July 13, 2011 Alison

      Thank you Stasha – Monkey sends his love and sloppy kisses. Yes, I can sometimes still see the baby in him, especially when he’s sleeping. With his bum in the air.

  • July 13, 2011 Alexandra

    He is adorable but I canNOT believe he is giving the photographer the finger!!!

    Okay, CUTE! Love it and I adore the one where he is flipping the camera off! We have one sort of similar of Max and it makes me laugh every time I see it!
