1. Make or buy a personalized ornament. Hang an ornament painted with your baby's name and birthdate. Every year you can take out this ornament and remember your baby's first Christmas.
8. Take plenty of pictures. Get pictures of your child's face when he first sees the Christmas lights or when he gets his first present. Make sure to also get pictures of your newly formed family.
9. Write a letter to your child. Even though it'll be a while before your child can read it, this letter can mean a lot to you for years to come. In your letter, tell your child how happy you are to be celebrating your first Christmas with her. Thank her for her first Christmas present to you--being born.
10. Start a Christmas scrapbook. Decorate the cover with your child's name and birthdate. Fill it with some of your Christmas pictures and any Christmas cards to your baby. You can also write a short description of your baby's first Christmas -- what you gave him, what he ate, or what he found scary -- and add it to your scrapbook.
