[so cheap, so easy]: Growth Charts

Have I ever mentioned how quickly my baby is growing up? I'm sure you have. I only say it every single day. She's growing up TOO quickly, that's for sure. I can't even handle it. Right now, Stella just loves give anyone and everyone who will listen an earful. Tonight, she entertained the missionaries by singing her rendition of FatBoy Slim's "Funk Soul Brother," told them that boys stand up to pee, and that flies like poop. That's right. We covered music, physiology, and zoology all in one dinner conversation. We're sophisticated like that.
There's no way I will be able to remember all of the things she says, but I want to start tracking her growth somewhere besides her baby book. I'm thinking I need to make some version of a growth chart for her room, because a)it's super cute, b)I think it would be a super cool keepsake, and c)she has a wall that would be perfect for it. We also need something we can take with us, since we like to move every other day. I'm thinking I'll take the stripes from the first pic and the numbers from the second. The full tutorial for the striped growth chart can be found at Cozy. Cottage. Cute.

  1. This post is so my life right now. I need a growth chart. I'm sure Morgan and Stella would get along well. As long as Stella likes to hold hands while she's talking.

  2. How do you suppose they did the lines on the other board? (Not the one you did)
