Designer and letterer Bob Ewing created these adorable baby growth charts to track his son's progress. Bob drew a new chart with a quirky title each time his son reached certain ages such nine months or one year.

This creative baby growth tracking project not only highlights meaningful phases in a child's life, but it also displays the talent of Bob Ewing. Each image is paired with a beautifully hand-drawn phrase such as "beef cake aged 3 months" or "stud muffin 6 months." The playful approach to this father and son bonding activity displays a truly creative art form.

The project began when Bob's son Nixon was just 9 months old. The inspiration for these black-lettered charts came from sign-painted menus seen at butcher shops. This also explains some of the quirky titles that are incorporated into the project.
