A first birthday present

We weren’t really sure what to get Bella for her first birthday. We ended up getting her a swing that we can install under the deck at our new house.

However, we also wanted something homemade. So after seeing tons of wooden growth charts around Pinterest, we decided to make the leap and make another item for our new house!

It was actually pretty easy to make. We picked up the board at Lowes and stained it with this nice dark color that we had on hand. I bought the number stencils at Michael’s and we drew the lines by hand.

We are pretty happy with how it came out! We plan on measuring Bella and any future kiddos every year on their birthday.

It was a little difficult this year, especially because Bella can’t stand on her own yet, but eventually we were able to get an accurate measurement.

We have the perfect spot picked out in our new house, and hopefully this will be one of the first items up on the wall once we move!
