100 Days for My Baby Girl: Day 99

Day 99
I didn't realize how much K2 grew until we took her monthly photos this week. 

Gone was her sleepy-eyed expression. Gone was the fist clenching and toe curling. Gone was our curled up little ball of wrinkles. Here is this wide-eyed, long and lean little girl. She definitely has her mommy's looks and figure, which is a very, very good thing. But selfishly, what I noticed most were the two characteristics she picked up from Daddy: big hands and even bigger feet. 

Now I could worry that she will grow up to be an Amazon woman or a female sasquatch, but that's not very Stunt Dadish. Rather, I'm concerned she's gonna have a big ol' schwanz like her Daddy. All kidding aside, I'm going to do the exact opposite and show off her hand and feet. I'm going to highlight these adorably large features and put them on a pedestal for all to see.
So, this day is going to be all about presentation. And here is what I’m planning to do:

Baby Print Artwork of My Daughter
I love the idea of creatively capturing K2's paw prints. And the most unique way to do that is to make canvas posters of them. While this is similar to the Black and White Canvas Posters I made of her baby photos, there is something extra special about artistically capturing them as well. Whether its the color, the unique shapes, or just the simplicity of it, they will bring a great splash of color and freshness.

And, here's how I'm going to do it: I'm going to grab some paint, grab those feet, dip 'em, and stick 'em onto a piece of white canvas. After the paint dries, I'm going to grab a marker and draw the design of a butterfly body in between each of the footprints. I'm going to do that 3x times on 3 different pieces of canvas, hang them in her bedroom, and call it a day.

What am I forgetting? Have any other ideas or suggestions? Check out the previous weeks below...
