If you are a new parent, you are probably wondering what are some things you can do to capture every moment with your baby.
Indeed, between the ages of infancy to two years old is when your baby will change the most mentally and physically. As a parent, you will want to capture these precious moments before they are gone forever. You should also be prepared to take on this enormous task of raising a child.
How to Celebrate Your Newborn’s Arrival: 5 Simple Ideas
Arrange a Photoshoot
What could be a better way than to capture your baby through photography. You can hire a professional photographer if you want professional-looking photos. But for everyday memories, a smartphone camera will work just fine.
Have a Baby Shower or Baby Party
This is a great way to announce to the world your baby’s arrival. It is also one last chance for new parents to catch up and see family and friends before your life gets taken over by the baby’s needs.
Record a Footprint or Handprint, or Both!
This is a great memento for you and your child to keep for the rest of their lives. This can be done in plaster, clay or ink, and will hold a sacred place on the walls of your house.
Start a Keepsakes Box
You can purchase a series of mini boxes to keep your baby’s keepsakes such as hospital bracelets and a lock of hair.
This is great for sentimental parents who want something to remember their children by when they move out of the house.
Start a Diary
For those writers out there, you can write a journal dedicated to stories from your baby’s first years of life. This also makes for a great memento for your child to remember you by.
Whether you announce the arrival of your baby to the world or keep it close to your heart, there’s no doubt you’ll want to capture as many baby memories as you can. Your little one is only little for so long; that’s why it’s important you have a number of keepsakes to help you hold onto those precious moments.
