- Christmas photos with baby
Take some photos of your baby with some LED christmas lights around. These can make for some epic keepsakes.
Also, take pictures when you are at your family Christmas party. It will be fun to look back years from now and see how much your baby has grown.
2. Baby's First ornaments
Another fun tradition you can start is getting baby an ornament every year. There are some magical first ornaments you can make yourself or purchase.
We especially like these personalized ones from Amazon.
3. Foot Print Ornaments
Another fun tradition is to make an ornament of your baby's footprints. As they grow up, they can look back at how little they were on their very first Christmas.
4. Read baby some Christmas books
This is probably one of my favorite traditions to start. No matter how young your baby is at Christmas time, there are some great board books that you and baby will love.
My kids loved the touch and feel books with different textures.
5. Pick out a stocking
Hanging stockings is another tradition that you can include with baby. Get them their very own stocking and fill it with teething toys so they can "open" it up themselves on Christmas morning.
