Also I included one of the first dummies, first pair of shoes, first haircut and a clay mould that was taken when Hollie was 8 months old of her foot and hand.
As someone who loves cards I have kept some of the congratulations cards when Hollie was born and also some of her first birthday cards too.
The second box contains items that Hollie has made at nursery and school as well as some items that Hollie made at home. I have tried to keep these items to a minimum and things that have a special memory.
I have filled Amelia’s baby box and have started her second box already. It’s great to be able to put things straight in the box that we want to keep and know it’s safe.
Hollie’s boxes are quite full already but Hollie is at the age now where she doesn’t do as much creative projects in school or home any more and so won’t fill the box up with big items but I can always buy another box, it’s not a problem.
I am so pleased that I have implemented these boxes as it’s so easy for the girls to be able to look in the boxes and reminisce.
Is this something that you have or would like to create for your child/children? I would love to know your thoughts in the comments.
