There is something magical about baby's first Christmas. I have had a newborn and a 8-month-old at Christmas time and both times they have been a holiday to remember. With my first, she was so brand new at Christmas time and we had such a struggle with her eating at first that my mind was all consumed with her at Christmas time and I didn't do very much to commemorate her first Christmas. I did have her picture taken with Santa and a few pictures of her in a Santa hat but that was about it.
When my next little one was born in April, by the time Christmas came around we were well established in all of our routines so I started looking for fun an cute ways to remember her first Christmas and a few ways to remember her sister's first Christmas even though it was years later.
baby, you can make this ornament even years later. All you need is a extra large ornament, your baby's hospital hat, a hospital ID bracelet and some other small piece of paraphernalia, in this case a bracelet.
5. Mistletoes. Brush your little one's toes with green paint and then press them onto a small canvas. Finish off the footprints with tiny red bows and the words Mistletoes.
I love all of the little hand print canvases and they take hardly any work. Just remember to occupy your baby or do it while they are sleeping so they aren't so wiggly!
