Baby’s 1st Christmas Keepsake Ornament

Celebrate this milestone with an adorable Baby’s 1st Christmas Keepsake Ornament! It is super easy to make and will commemorate the memory for years to come!


Christmas this year is extra special for our family because it’s our first Christmas as a family of four! We are looking forward to celebrating with the baby, and her big sister can’t wait either. It makes me remember back in 2015 when we celebrated AJ’s first Christmas, and this adorable “Baby’s 1st Christmas” keepsake ornament I made to commemorate the occasion. (And don’t worry, I kept EJ’s hat and hospital bracelet so I can make one for her too!)

One of my favorite things about Christmas is decorating our Christmas tree. We don’t usually go with a “theme” every year; instead we just accumulate ornaments throughout the years, so we end up with an eclectic mix of colors and style. Every ornament has a memory associated with it (we bought an ornament when we went to Disney World a few years ago, we bought ornaments the first year we moved to Chicago, and so on) so it’s always fun to open up the boxes of ornaments and remember the good times as we decorate the tree!
