Day One Montage

Day 1 Composite
As the Smudge photos begin slow down somewhat, I found time to put together this montage or composite of Smudge's first day. It's the way that I have done our photo albums for the past few years, but I am extremely behind right now — about a year as a matter of fact. That scares me a lot because we'll be going away for three weeks in June, so there will probably be another few thousand to process. Sigh.

In case you were wondering, today was not a good day for the little Smudge. Her tummy was upset. It's hard to understand how that happens on straight body milk, but it surely does. It's tough both on the little one and on Mom. However, these days shall pass and fade a little: just not entirely. Impossible.

She's so beautiful. Hope her little tummy is feeling better.

Thanks for your kind words today. The love and support help so much.

Wow, excellent collection, perfectly put together. You all look so happy and competely captured by your little Smudge. I just love all these first pictures, they bring back memories.

You have a beautiful montage of early photos. This way of presenting them looks very effective.

What a lovely montage, and the star is just beautiful. On day one, her face is so pretty.
Sorry about the upset tummy, but even on mother's milk little ones can swallow too much air, or just have a cranky tummy.
You so bring back memories of my 2nd child--my daughter--who just had to fuss around 5 p.m. every day, no matter what. FUSS, fuss, cranky cranky cry cry! She is now 25 & the sweetest daughter imaginable!

What a great collage! It touches so many touching aspects.

Make it poster size and archive for her wedding day. Not to get too far ahead of the game. Just saying.

This is just wonderful. Lucky, lucky, little Smudge :0) I like Pam's idea.

Love the collage. What a beautiful keepsake.

My second child had bad colic and had many "upset tummy" days. All I can say is "this too will pass". And they do .. and it does. But even after all of these years... I remember how tough it sometimes was.

I love watching what you do with the photos!

Rock on, Anvil!
