Do you have special keepsakes for your children?

What do you save and how do you store it?

Most of my oldest childs things are at his dads house. Not sure if he even has any of them anymore. I had the outfit he came home in, first shoes, and other little things in a small box.

DD has a small photo box with special things from her first year. Bracelet her grandma made her and she wore as a newborn, coming home outfit, first Christmas dress, the first section of the newspaper from the day she was born, a rattle that was her favorite toy for most of the first year, and the shirt she wore at her first birthday party.

Haven't done anything for the baby so far. I'm not even sure where her hospital bracelets are lol. She doesn't have a baby book either but the first two do.

 My oldest dd has a stuffed bunny that my mil got her when she was 2 and a baby blanket my late grandmother made her. They are still on her bed and she is 9. My youngest dd has a teddy bear that my late grandparents gave her for her first Christmas and the baby blanket that the same late grandmother made her. They are still on her bed and she is 8

That is a good idea! I really need to invest in one. Then back up my photos onto my external hard drive and store it in there.

Aww! Glad to know I'm not totally nuts for keeping a few outfits. I'm a sucker for baby clothes.
