Almost three years ago, my friend Jill found this great first birthday poster on Pinterest. Below is an example, a first birthday chalkboard poster you can buy from M&M Chalkboard Creations (image source).

I loved the idea of pulling together all this information on Faith's first year, which served dual purposes - 1) a commemorative keepsake and 2) party decoration. Based on the Pinterest concept, Jill helped me create a first year milestone poster.
For Faith's birthday, we created the poster in Power Point in 11" x 17" format. I printed the poster through Staples and then framed it 16" x 20" white matted frame. If you are feeling creative, below are fun facts you can pull together on your baby to feature on your own first year milestone poster.
FUN FACTS TO PULL TOGETHER
- Growth facts
- Height / Weight / Number of teeth
- Physical milestones
- Provide age in months or weeks
- Rolled over / Crawled / Stood / Walked
- Clapped / Waved / Laughed
- Verbal milestones
- First word
- List of words your baby can say
- Favorite toys / favorite activities
To keep the tradition going, Jill is helping me create one for Dean. To help you construct your own, I've made a free printable you can download here and open with any application (Power Point, Canva, Paint) to add in text with your baby's stats.
