Baby's First Year

It's only taken me more than 2 years to finish, but now it is done! I have made a picture calendar for both my children to capture and remember their first year of life. Here is a glimpse of the calendar I made for my son.
A great way to document special milestones.

See baby grow!

Capture treasured moments.

Silly faces.

Happy times!

Fresh from the bath and already 7 months old.

Holidays remembered.

My favorite layout.

Thankful I won't forget how little his hands were.

Baby's first Christmas.

Fun in the snow.....maybe not.

Big Birthday Boy.

Both the calendars I made for my children are treasured keepsakes. I rotate them and keep them on display throughout the year. It is fun to reminisce about when they were babies.

Check out more "baby" projects on CTMH Heart 2 Heart challenge page.

TIP OF THE DAY: Use calendars as a way to keep track of special memories, quotes and events. These baby calendars are better than a baby book and are so easy to keep track of baby's growth. Simply jot down a note on the given day and now you have a memory that you will never forget. I use these calendars all the time for journaling on special layouts. My "everyday" calendar has also become a good resource for scrapbook journaling.
