  • Christmas Pictures

    Today I bring you a veritable feast for the eyes that is sure to bring a smile to your face. You know those baby pictures that your parents took of you that they brought out every time you started dating someone seriously? My parents had a picture of me lying on my tummy in my birthday suit on a black couch. For whatever reason they thought it was adorable, sweet, endearing. Okay, I admit it, it kind of was. But, I didn't think so at the time. Just think what could be done with these adorable shots:

  • Choosing a Christmas Stocking for Your Baby

    Christmas stockings form a very important tradition for your family. Your baby's first Christmas should signal the start of a new tradition: get him or her their own Christmas stocking.

    But how do you make sure that you get the perfect Christmas stocking for your baby? It's actually very simple.

    1. Take note of the decoration. It may be his or her first Christmas, but the stocking will be used for many years to come. As such, it will be best to have a design that may still work when he or she is a little bit older. It might be a good idea to have something universal and eternal when it comes to design. Dora the Explorer might be a big hit now, but you'd never know how popular she would be in the next two to three years. Better opt for designs such as Santa Claus or a teddy bear.

    2. Personalize it! Nothing says it best than a personalized stocking. Especially when you have more than one kid, names on the stocking will help you get through the confusion when stuffing time comes. Also, it will make a nice keepsake when it's time to retire an old stocking for a new one. You could include the old stocking in your baby's scrapbook.

    3. Make it or buy it? There are a lot of stores that sell Christmas stockings. You also have the option to make it yourself. But whatever you go with, make sure that the final product is both beautiful and durable.

    4. What to fill it with? Make sure that your stocking fillers are age appropriate. A good idea for stocking stuffers include baby essentials such pacifiers, teething rings. Or you could surprise your baby with a rattle or a stuffed toy.

    Having a new addition to the family is always an exciting thing, but it is more so during Christmas time. It not only allows you to start or continue a family tradition, but it will help build memories for your family.
