When Brooklyn was born, my mother-in-law gave us a bag of Scot's baby things that she had carefully saved in their attic over the years. It meant so much to me (and Scot), so I decided to make a baby keepsake bag for each one of my kids too.
It's nothing fancy, but here's what Connor's looks like. Just a big ol' Ziploc bag.
I labeled each one.
Things I include are: baby's first pair of shoes, personalized blankets, sleep sack, swaddling blankets, going-home outfit, favorite clothes, hats, bibs. I even include baby's first brush or comb and any other momentos they might have.
The going-home outfit is a must, in my opinion.
Here's Connor's hospital outfit, hat and receiving blanket that he wore when he had surgery at 9 weeks.
I always include my favorites too.
The best part? The bags zip right up and they don't ever collect dust. And it's something special to pass down to generations to come.
I hope my kids appreciate these keepsakes one day when they have little ones of their own.
