I think the most precious thing I have from my son's infancy would have to be his Wubbanub pacifier. It was a Soothie pacifier attached to a cute little dog so that when he dropped it, it wouldn't roll away. He absolutely loved it, and used it so much that eventually we had to buy a new one since it got so well-worn.

The outfit my daughter came home from hospital in. My mom used the same outfit for my brother and me, so while going through stuff when we moved out, for some reason he got it. :( I want Sweet Pea to always have her outfit. She wore it more than once since she was so tiny and in newborn clothes longer than anticipated. But I have it saved and it means the world.

Wow, I have everything from the hospital tags to their first outfit that they came home in. I've kept clippings from their first haircuts. I have their first teeth (for older ones). I think the most precious memento I have from the children’s infancy is the letters from my husband telling me how proud and happy he was with our girls. He shared his dreams and hopes for each of our girls. He explained how happy he was and the path that we followed. He made me feel loved, cherished and beautiful at the time I needed it most.

My precious memento would have to be my daughters first booties and beanie she wore the day we were able to take her home from the hospital. They were Winnie the Pooh.

Oh, there are so many...there's the hospital bracelet, locks of hair, outfits she wore at various firsts! My daughter is only 18 months and I plan to create a box for each year and hand it over to her on her 18th birthday. It may sound a bit silly, but I treasure the evolution of her diaper sizes. I have one of each diaper sizes she wore. Though she is still a small person, it's fascinating to see how much she has grown in a year and half compared to when she was born.

Precious mementoes from my daughter and son's infancies are their comfort items. I know I will keep them close to me when they grow out of them...although we swear my son will be bringing his to college. They have been a huge part of their childhood growing up WITH them. Both of their stories are here:

I think the most precious thing I have from my daughter's infancy is a dress my mother gave her for her first Christmas. My mom had a grand tradition of giving little girls fancy Christmas dresses. The first one was very, very fancy. My mom died not long after this, so the dress is both a reminder of my daughter's baby days and my mom.

I have a keepsake box for each of my children. Inside are photos, of course, their baby books, the outfits they wore home from the hospital, first pairs of shoes, locks of hair from their first haircuts, school papers and artwork and other various momentos that mean everything to me. When I'm ready, I'll pass along the box to each of them. They have no idea that I have been doing this throughout their childhoods. They are aware of the baby books, but not the extent of the collection and memories that I have saved and cherished from each of my precious kiddos. :)

The most precious memento(s) we have are not 1 but 3 hospital bracelets for our precious little guy. We had a really rough start as he was almost a month early and we wound up back in the hospital THREE times after his birth (all within the first 3 weeks of his life). These bracelets are a tender reminder of how lucky we are that he’s a happy healthy 6 month old now. They also remind me of how much our lives changed in an instant, and how sickly worried you can be about such a tiny, helpless, little baby….and more importantly, how strong he was and how much tenacity he had at such a young age…. We will forever be reminded of how persevering through challenges can really bring a family together.

The most precious memento I have from my children's infancy that is not a photo? I have a box of items that I couldn't part with when they outgrew them. A few outfits that I especially loved to dress them in and now marvel at how tiny they are. Some cotton blankets, oh so soft, that I wrapped them up in when we rocked and nursed, which remind me how they would all wiggle their feet until they poked them out from under the blanket. Special board books that we read over and over and over--I can still recite them by heart. A few small toys--a rattle, a stuffed animal, a Thomas train. The ever-present pacifiers. My goal is to create a scrapbook of photos of the boys with these items at the time they wore/used them and some journaling of my memories of these times and store it in the box along with these special items. The baby years were so precious and flew by so quickly!

My most precious thing is actually not a thing, but a memory of my little boy (suddenly turned big) waiting for me in front of the elevator with a huge bouquet when I was coming from the hospital with his new brother. How he gave me the flowers and looked at me was the most breath-taking moment of my life and I will never forget it. There was supposed to be a photo, we only realized later that daddy was clicking the empty camera without the memory card and he never noticed due to all the excitement:)

I adore those tiny coming-home (from the hospital) outfits. I hung them in my laundry room. Seeing them is a daily reminder of how precious each of my 7 children are.

I started Scrapbooking shortly after my daughter, now 15 months, was born. I've kept everything from her hospital bracelets to all of her FIRSTs items, ie. her first pacifier (she stopped using a pacifier at 4 months! I began my journey as a SAHM at 4 months and trained her to stop using one!). Everything is just so sentimental that it's so difficult to get rid of anything!
