100 Days for My Baby Girl: Day 95

Day 95
Since K2 is our second child, Wifey and I know recycling all too well. Even though our first child was a boy, we were able to re-use alot of the same clothes, equipment, and necessities that we used with Munch. 
One of the more valuable things I've learned as a parent is thriftiness, which is a nice word for being cheap. Money seems to go quicker than it comes in, so I am always looking to save a buck, re-use things, or generally spend less whenever I can. So, building off that idea, I thought back to Week 2's theme of Connection and am re-using some of the photos from our Professional Photo Shoot. 

So, this day is going to be all about reutilization. And here is what I’m planning to do:

Black and White Canvas Photos of My Daughter
Our 1 hour photoshoot in Week 2 resulted in over 200 photos. About 10 of have been put into frames around our house and/or offices, the rest were posted to Facebook. Other than that, they appear on our Apple TV whenever we listen to music and look at photos (which has happened twice since she was born). Needless to say, we haven't got the mileage out of the cough, $$$$!#?#, cough, that we spent on the photoshoot.That is, until now.

I'm going to select three of those pictures, probably a close-up of her profile (because she had, err has, the cutest little chubby cheeks), a hand (because her fingers are so long and dainty), and a foot (because they were just downright gigantic). Through Canvas Discount, I'm then going to have those pictures printed out in Black and White at 8" x 8" on canvas and stretched & mounted to a wood frame backing. It's simple, it's artistic, and we have a great spot on the stairway wall leading into her bedroom to showcase them.
