What Baby Things Did You Save? — 12 Comments

  1. I have all the bracelets from the hospital & the little cards that were taped to the basinet,..I saved them in a special little album along with pics taken in the hospital,…Also I have my youngest girl’s first hard shoes & her first sleeper suit in a wee box wrapped in tissue 🙂 I’m pregnant with #4 now, my first son & I am SO excited! He’s due in 69 days, this post made me smile,..thank you!

  2. The album of the hospital bracelets. ID cards. and pics is wonderful.

    I’m so glad to hear that you have momentos from ALL your children. I’ll be the first one to admit that we have way more baby photos of #1 than we do of #2!

    Congrats on your fourth! Glad I could make you smile … you’re welcome.

  3. Thanks for letting me know, Lucky Hawk. It looks OK on my monitor, but I changed the column proportions a little bit. Hope that fixed it.

    Glad you liked our blog 😉

  4. Thanks for stopping by here, Jeff. It’s quite enough for me to put together a couple of blogs that I’m not too embarrassed to share, let alone self publish a book! Good luck in your publishing efforts and to all those writers you are blogging about.

  5. We have four adult children and six grandchildren. I did what you all did with babyclothes, “baby books,” and other mementos. I have since distributed them as Christmas gifts to the Originators-my kids-in several forms: individual scrapbooks (their spouses love these), and objects (such as toys-which their kids loved). But the biggest hits were the baby-size teddy bears which I dressed in full sets of their own baby clothes. You should have seen my big ole hulking grown-up boys faces soften as they hugged their little bears. So think beyond the mementos as they are to what they can be in years to come. And I treasure my cleaner closets!

  6. Oh, Carol Gee, thank you so much for taking the time to share your suggestions, particularly the teddy bear one!

    I’m already thinking about how to use some of these precious things for Christmas! Notice I said SOME. They can’t have them all! I want’em!!

  7. As a Pastor I know that it was always easier if someone had to go to a nursing home if they could take a few of those memory objects with them. When I would visit I would ask about them and they had a great time telling the stories and sharing the memories each item gave. I have my little box ready.

  8. I didn’t get the pleasure of sharing such memories with some of my elderly family members, as they had Alzheimer’s Disease.

    But I do agree, Dr. John, that having personal items around a loved one is important, even when they don’t know who they are any more.

  9. All my stuff is at home (ie. at my parents place). Most things I had when I was a kid have since been my brother’s, then my sister’s.

    I don’t have too many memories of my own yet – guess they’ll come as I grow older. I just always make sure to burn all my pictures on two separate cds and keep one at home and one here. That’s gotta be a lot easier than big photo albums – I take a lot of photos…

  10. You are very wise to keep your backup CD’s in separate homes, apples. Just be sure you used high quality CD’s and recopy from time to time. There’s been a lot of information around about CD “viruses”, where the information is corrupted in a very short period of time, not by a computer bug, but by inherent problems with CD’s.
