Creating a memory jar is another brilliant way to document your baby's first year. Every time you notice your baby doing something new, jot it down on a piece of paper and put it in jar that you label as a memory jar. You can open the jar in the years to come and read through all the notes reliving the moment when they were written. Creating a memory jar is a unique sentimental idea that you can use not only for your baby's first year but even long after.

3. Create A Memory Box

If a memory jar isn't enough, you could try creating a memory box. Instead of just notes, you can add actual items of memorabilia to the box, like strands of hair, photos, hospital mementos, clothing, and anything that you will like to remember.

When your baby grows up, you and her/him can open the box, and you can tell your child all about each item in the memory box, making a beautiful keepsake and beautiful memories in the process.

4. Create A 1st Year Poster
