    I have a huge box for Mackenzie. It is a gorgeous big box which has been painted folk art style. My mum bought it for Mackenzie. I have all the usual - hospital bracelet, outfit she wore home from hospital, the plastic thingy off her belly button, newspapers from the day she was born etc. We will also add her book which covers her first 5 years (milestones) once it is complete.

    Over the past 2 years I've added:

    A dvd of each Christmas and also a year DVD with all special memories from each year
    Her first concert ticket (wiggles)
    Her first painting - free hand and sponging etc
    Her christening candle and stoll (I think that's what it's called)
    The dress she wore for her first birthday and her birthday hat along with a list of presents, who attended and a copy of her birthday invitation
    I've got an autographed drawing from a playschool concert we went to wishing her a happy 21st
    and a tonne of other things that mean something to us.

    I'm glad it's a big box (think blanket box) so it can fit everything in. We plan to give it to her on her 21st birthday.

    I've got a box with Cooper's "congratulations" cards, the notes I kept of all his feeds (6 months worth!), going home outfit etc. I've also got a record book which has handprints, hospital bracelet, birth notice etc.

    And my DH made a fantastic scrapbook. It has the front page of the paper from the day Cooper was born, a list of the Top 40 at the time, the AFL ladder, the TV guide for that day, prices of milk / Big Mac / petrol / postage stamp etc and many other pages. He did a great job.
