    Congratulations! Of course.

    And make an effort to keep taking photos. You might think it's easy, and that you'll never stop, but soon you'll think well, not much has changed has it? we already have twelfty-dozen photos of new 'un in that outfit grinning on the floor, one more won't make a difference. YOU WILL BE WRONG. They change constantly and incessantly and you just don't notice until friends bring round a new newborn and you realise how much you've failed to record for posterity.

    This may or may not have happened to me with my 6 month old recently.

    Totally agree with sonofsanta. I have a 3 month old boy who I thought hadn't changed much, was incredible looking back to when he was born!

    If I had my time again I would take a picture everyday of my kids. It may seem a stupid thing to do but having seen youtube clips of the photos others have taken of their kids I wish I had.

    Each of our children has an album with pictures of them taken at regular intervals from scan to the present time. We bought the kind of album that could be expanded by adding extra pages from WHSmith. This was started in pre-digital camera days, but we try to keep it up to date though there are fewer pictures taken these days let alone printed.

    It's amazing to see them grow up... and, of course, it remains as an ever present threat that it can be shown to friends/partners should they set a foot out of line!

    Your one of those lovely mothers that threatens that, quite why mine hasn't broken out my sisters given she has a BF and has done for a few years now is a strange wonder to me as she most sure deserves it (big bullying older brother here but dare not risk it now given she has a Law Degree EEK!)

    To be honest @john, I'd probably never do it (but don't tell them that )

    After only a few months of dating, Mr gee40's Mum pulled out the albums of childhood pictures. My toes still curl now thinking about it!

    I used to have a set of pictures on the landing wall so as you came up the stairs you were faced with a row of pictures of my children at 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 18 months and 2 years - aligned so that you could compare them at the various ages to see when they looked alike (I'm always fascinated to see how they slip in and out of sibling resemblance as they grow up).
    They HATED it
    Now I just have the three at 3 months up. I always intended to put a set of three at first school, middle school, year 9 and sixth form but a couple have gone missing...

    Mr gee40's parents were only allowed photos of our wedding on condition the massive graduation photo got taken down from pride of place in the living room

    The wedding photographer couldn't print pictures that size * looks innocent *

    1) Photograph the baby.
    2) Use age progression software on the photo.
    3) Put the [age progressed] photo up in the house.
    4) ???
    5) Convice your child they're a time-traveller.
