I just made my own version of this totally cute idea that I found a few months ago. It went over great at the baby shower and I am now making a couple more for my recently born nephews & will make one for each of my kids.
(By the way, if you visit the link for the site where this idea was originally posted . . . I'm sorry! Its an awesome site & you'll probably see so many projects that you'll want to do that you won't even have time to do them all!!!)
Anyway, I wanted a cute poem to attach to it, but couldn't find any that I liked, so I made up my own. You're welcome to use it if you try this out for a gift:
Right now you are a little one
So tiny and so sweet.
And soon you will be running ‘round
On tiny little feet.
The big events the birthdays too
Recorded here by height,
To show your progress as you grow
In knowledge and in might.
The years will pass so quickly
as I mark them on this “wall”.
And I will love you more each day
As you grow big and tall.
I’ll cherish ev’ry memory
And teach you all that’s right.
And thank Him for each moment
That I get to hold you tight.
