There are so many special items and memories from a baby’s first year. So many milestones I want to remember. The problem that usually arises is the lack of time and energy a Mom has in baby’s first year. A couple of months after Little Lady was born I pulled out a few pieces I had saved from her first days in the hospital – a t-shirt, hat, wrist band, and information card. I toyed with a couple of ideas and ended up displaying these items, along with her birth announcement, in a baby shadow box. I am so happy I took the time to do this, it’s still in her room and every time I look at it I am reminded just how little she was and how much she has grown.
When Baby Girl was born, I knew right away I wanted to do the same thing with her hospital mementos.
Baby Girl’s shadow box sits in her room on her night stand and I know I will soon be looking at this thinking “how did you get so big?”.
I used the same items, minus the birth announcement. I dressed it up with paper and embellishments that coordinate with her room. The white frame blends nicely with her gallery wall too.
How do you preserve your baby memories? A book, a journal, pictures? I’d love to hear your ideas.
Thanks for visiting!
