Playground Chatter: Precious Baby Mementos
We know how incredible it is to watch your little one grow up so quickly and change every day right in front of your eyes. Before you know it, your baby will be trading in the bottle in for a sippy cup and will be crawling towards you! Many parents will want to remember these sweet, fleeting moments with a keepsake, such as a lock of their baby’s hair, a favorite toy or an outfit worn on a special occasion.
