In my family it is tradition to do Babies first Christmas ornaments for the tree. With mine and my sisters we got a little precious moments angel. But with my brother he got the baby in the crib snuggling a stuff animal. All of them have the year on them. But my husbands family has never done that. And he was confused when we got like five babies first Christmas ornaments.

    I've always gotten babies their first ornament. My kids had them and now I got one for my grandbaby to hang on my tree and one for my daughter to hang on her tree.

    I think they should get a special ornament. Even if its just something the represents them and isnt the specific "babys first" ornament. Something they will treasure and have forever.

    i buy new ornaments for my children every year and then they have to wait until the next christmas to see them. then we make a big deal of each of us putting on our ornaments. my son always asks why sissy has more. and i always tell him cause you werent born yet(they are 2.5 yrs apart).

    I buy my son an ornament each year. However, I do not let anyone else buy him ornaments since I look for one that specifically represents him and is personalized with his name and date.

    Both my kids have at least 2, I think my dd actually has like 2 or 4. Plus every year we My mom or/and I get the kids an ornament representing that they were into that year. Last year I got my dd the Island Princess Barbie Ornament because that is what she really liked that year. This year my mom got dd the Christmas edition Barbie, and ds got a baby monkey taking a bath, because we call him our little monkey, and he loves taking baths. I have various ones my mom gave me through the years as well signafying my intersts or milestones. Its a cool tradition. And we love Christmas.
