Capturing Children’s Growth

Posted By Jessica G On April 11, 2012 @ 5:06 pm In Family | 3 Comments

There is something truly magical about watching your children grow and reaching each new milestone that marks their progression from infant to toddler to pre-schooler, on up. These moments need to be captured though, because they go by oh-so-fast!

In the past, it was common to make pencil marks on the wall to record kids’ physical growth. Of course wanting to paint the room, or worse, moving, created a real problem. Luckily personalized growth charts [1] from Petite Lemon offer a fun, colorful alternative. Not only do personalized growth charts coordinate well with a variety of nursery décor or playroom themes, they can be saved as mementos.

Digital cameras, along with some pretty good camera phones, have made it so easy to record each “first” – smiles, teeth, steps, etc – in a child’s life, along with every adorable moment in between. A wonderful way to save all of those great snapshots for posterity is to create a photo book [2]chronicling each year of their life. What a treat it will be to look through each year’s book, seeing all of the changes and reliving each moment.

We also love this idea we’ve seen floating around Pinterest recently — take your child’s first day of school photo, print it out and have them pose with it for their last day of school. What a great way to see how much they’ve grown throughout the year.

Another spin is to document your child’s first day of school and the last day of school in the same outfit.
