We’re all looking for cute, creative ways to document how quickly our little newborns turn into sitters and crawlers and walkers and then toddlers in the short span of a year. We use photo apps, stuffed elephants, or fruit and vegetable comparisons, but never before have I seen someone compare their precious bundle to a delicious sandwich.
Enter new father Brad Williams, who told Philly.com that the tradition began when he snapped a picture of his 2-week-old son, Lucas, next to his cheesesteak because they were about the same size. His family loved the comparison photo, and voila – a new schtick was born.
Williams continued taking the photos throughout the first year of his son’s life, posting on his website and Instagram account so his family and friends could see how Lucas compared to Philly’s famous sandwich. He’s even mused on some similarities between his photography subjects:
“Wrapped up they are warm and cuddly, but once you unwrap them, expect a huge mess. Either way, both are worth it.”
It’s nice to see he’s kept a sense of humor through that first year of parenthood. It’s a doozy.
