I peaked around at some of the other playgroups to see what they've done and came up with some of my own as well. Here are some ideas:

Baby Wearing
Out and About
All Dressed Up
Bath Time Fun
Furry Friends (real or stuffed)
Mommy and Me/Daddy and Me
Sweetest Smile
Enchanting Eyes
Sleeping Beauties
Funny Faces
Sweet Sadness (for those pictures of them crying/upset that look so cute)
Hungry Hungry Hippo (feeding pics)
Tummy Time/Play Time Fun

Here are some more ideas:
Wearing a hat
Crazy Hair
Baldies
Thumb/finger or binky sucking
Halloween
Winter holiday
Car seat
Blanket
with favorite toy
sitting
standing (obviously for much later)
Pictures that just have a particular color in them or on LO (ie: red, blue, pink, green, etc)
Stroller
Fall leaves
Snow/winter
diaper butts
crawling
tummy time

hmn....I think having it weekly might be a little too much...how about monthly? Then perhaps more peopled would have time to apply....

I have to agree that weekly sounds like it will be difficult to keep up with - at least for now while everyone is still so busy with small babies.

Maybe we could do 3-4 categories a month. :)

You don't have to enter every week. Sometimes you'll find that you don't have anything to go with a particular theme and that's ok.

The other play group that I belong to did it, and you just entered when you could. I found that it actually helped me to remember to get out the camera and take pictures of the various milestones. And you may find that sometimes you already have a picture for the chosen theme for the week - we'd probably start with some of those themes to begin with.

Mine are too!! You may be able to either crop or resize the pictures in whatever picture editing program came with your computer. Its usually under an 'edits' tab. Took me a bit to figure it out too, especially since we just switched to a macbook.

I like the idea. I feel like if it were only monthly I'd be less likely to remember to post. I think 2-3 times a month sounds like it would work!
