As if the holiday’s weren’t special and exciting enough, this year is Harper’s First Christmas and it makes everything that much more magical! Having a baby during the holidays is always so special. I’ve never had a baby be this old on their first Christmas! I can already tell it is going to be so much fun! Her little personality is shining through so much these days, and the older kids love introducing her to new things! With it being Harper’s First Christmas, I thought it would be a great time to share some of my favorite traditions we do for each of the little people on their first Christmas, as well as some new ideas for the whole family!
This one is definitely my favorite and something I think is so special! I like to try and find an ornament that mentions “First Christmas” or their name so it has special meaning. My people love to find their ornaments every year and ask me questions about when they were tiny. Since this will be our first Christmas in our new house, we want to start some new traditions too! We will have room for 2 trees now, so we thought it would be fun to give the little people a new ornament every year, and let them have their own tree in the basement that they can start to fill up with their ornaments! It will be fun to pick out ornaments that go with their different personalities and likes, and I know they will LOVE finding them every year.
Another tradition I’ve tried to keep up on with each of my babies, is to get them one timeless gift that they can look back and know it was from their first Christmas, and maybe even keep for years to come when they have their own little people. I love this Fire Truck because it will never be looked at as “out of date”. You can even personalize it with your little ones name.
I’ve mentioned on here before that every year my little people get to open new pajamas on Thanksgiving. Since those are Christmas themed, I love to get them some on Christmas Eve too. As you can see by the pictures, I gave in and gave the babies theirs a little early! They were too cute and cozy to resist, and I about died when I saw Harper in this sweet robe.
Whatever your tradition might be, they are the things that make these holiday moments so special. I’d love to hear what you do for Baby’s First Christmas + some of your favorite traditions!
