Tips for consistently recording your child's development in a scrapbook that goes beyond baby years.

DIRECTIONS

The custom of keeping a book from birth through a child's early life, recording important events, such as the first step or the first word, is quite common. Many people carry this on only until all the baby things have been accomplished, but it could go on longer. One idea is to write a page at each birthday, sticking in an up-to-date photograph and listing the important events of that year. Maybe this could be done together with the child, as he or she may remember different occasions as being important. Another way to celebrate the year just past is to make a card with pictures and descriptions, and title it 'This is your year'.
