Baby's First Haircut and Other Mementos

Baby's First Haircut and Other Mementos

Sep 30, 2009

Our baby got his first haircut yesterday and I instinctively kept a lock of hair as a keepsake. It's definitely something we want to keep but what do we with it?

We recalled our post about displaying baby's first clothes and got going on a display project. We took a few photos of baby and his new do and the plan is to frame one of the photos along with the lock of hair mounted and the date. We also like this idea (found on Maya Made) of storing the precious memento in a cute box.

In addition to baby clothes and locks of hair, what other baby mementos and keepsakes do you have and what ideas do you have for keeping or displaying them? Our list includes (or will include):

  • shoes
  • hand and footprints
  • baby teeth
  • hospital bracelets
