Marking your child’s growth by penciling in notches on the door-frame
is something that most parents do. It’s exciting to look back and see just
how much your child has grown. I stopped measuring Tyler years ago,
he started to hit his growth spurt and now at 15, he’s leaving me in the dust.
I’m not short — I’m vertically challenged.
Here’s a great twist on the idea of marking your child’s growth. It’s an
easy craft project I found in FamilyFun Magazine. Instead of simply
marking your child’s growth, you make a chart using craft paper that
you hang on the wall and as you measure, you include a corresponding
photo. It’s a visually pleasing way to see how your child is growing
both in height and how their facial features change over time.
