We celebrate the very first Christmas with our baby. He’s 7 month and it will be a very precious moment for us he won’t remember a thing but we’ll take plenty of pictures so he can see how we celebrated it. We’ve bought a couple of toys for him but we’d like to concentrate on choosing our Christmas tradition. I think it’s pretty important. I read about it on parenting.com:
Do you love how your family always throws a kitschy Christmas sweater party, or how your husband’s spends Christmas Eve playing board games? Now you have your own little family, and you can hand-pick the traditions that you like best to form your own set.
It’s also good time to start our own family tradition, why not? We need to start somewhere:
As much as you’ll be influenced by how you grew up, it’s also fun to come up with something that’s all your own. Make it a ritual to read the same special holiday book each year, watch retro holiday specials like Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, or be inspired by our favorite traditions from readers.
I love Christmas ornaments, they so cute. I usually prefer the unique ones. I have these tiny Christmas ornaments and I really adore them:
Ornaments are all about the memories associated with them, and this first Christmas is a biggie. So commemorate it with a sweet ornament you’ll love pulling out year after year. Create a photo ornament with your fave snapshot of the year, or personalize one with baby’s name.
We take hundreds of photos of our son, we love every moment we can spend with him. He loves it when we take a picture of him. These pictures will be our precious memories:
You may not realize it, but your babe’s at an ideal age to get some great snaps. She can’t run out of the frame, and although it might be hard to get her into it, she can’t pull off that sweet holiday outfit you bought for her. Shoot when you get as much natural light as possible, and use your tree or stocking-filled mantel as a background. Be sure to take a lot of photos to get just the right shot.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, I hope you’ll join me in 2013 too
