Baby Goat's Birthday Game

There is a sense of shock and awe over here in the Goat household today.  Today Baby Goat is 1!!!!  It is hard for me to get my head around really.  How can he have been here a whole year?  Despite that it doesn't make sense in my mind there is visual proof of a full year so I'll just have to accept it.

I'm sure I'll have much more to say about it and the coming celebrations in the days to come but for your Friday fun baby goat has a little game for you.  Below are 13 pictures of baby goat, monthly from the day he was born to today.  Can you put them in order by month? (aka birth, 1 month, 2 month, etc).

Can you get them in the right order?  I was going to do a giveaway for baby goat's birthday but the more I think of it I want to have a bigger impact on this special day.  So for every person who comments and plays the game I will donate 25 cents to the Samaritan's Purse to buy a share of (what else) a goat.  A goat (or other dairy animal) will be given to a poor family in an underdeveloped nation - like Haiti, to provide, milk, cheese, and income to another family.  Will you play baby goat's birthday game and help another family somewhere around the world today?   (Comments will be open until Friday, March 5) (EDITED TO ADD:  If you don't want to/can't play you may still comment and I will count your comment towards the donation!)

Happy Birthday Baby Goat!  You make me want to be a better mom, a better wife, and a better person.  This year has been a joy and a blessing.  I love you!

You are so clever! I like the game and the goat donation. I want to print them all out so I can see them all at once to arrange them correctly. Is that taking it too far? LOL

Happy Birthday, Baby Goat!

I will have to return to play the game... Will need some time. But I WILL play, because I love the goat fundraiser.

This was hard, and I would not let myself look back at old posts with milestones or events to help. Here is my wild, wild guess:

That's my guess. Tough to do, though, even if I took some of those! ;)

Sara Joy said...

I will not embarrass myself with a guess. I am a terrible guesser.
However, I looooove this game. Great idea and Happy Birthday!

Everytime I come here to play the game, I get too overwhelmed and run out of time. Sorry Liz! He's just so cute every month! :) Happy birthday baby Goat!
