Your baby's first year: Photo shoots, smash cakes, more

+-

In the blink of an eye, your baby's first year will come and go.

But we know you're documenting every moment -- from their first smile or giggle to their funny facial expressions the first time they try solid foods, when they learn how to crawl and more.

Whether it's your gender reveal photos, your baby's birth announcement or your child's first birthday smash cake photo shoot, we want to see all of your baby's first-year photos.

You can submit them here. (Captions are submitted by readers who share their photos.)
