A Growth Chart
Start a tradition by marking your child's yearly progress on a wall that won't be painted over through the years, or on a scroll of paper that you can put up each birthday. Or, try something non-traditional. For instance, on each birthday, take a picture of your child holding a favorite stuffed animal or a clock showing the time he was born. As the years go by, it will be fun to see how small that stuffed animal or clock appears in relation to your growing child.
