I’m not very good at keeping a journal, so I needed a way to keep track of all the milestones and fun events in Gray’s life. After seeing this project on Pinterest, I just modified it a little and made it work for our budget…cheap! I purchased a piece of bead board from Lowe’s for under $10 and painted the back of it with some chalkboard paint I had at home.
You can tell by the pictures that we have played around with the best time of day to get the best light for these pics. I’ve found that the mornings work best for not creating shadows. We lay the chalkboard on the ground and change the words and date. Then, we lay Gray on the board while one of us gets on a stool at the bottom of the board.
He is getting used to looking at the camera by now! It will be interesting to see how the pictures change once he learns how to roll over and crawl.
