    I have loads in ours already. Umbilical chord (bit gross, I know), hospital tags, my first mother's day card, the hat she wore after she was born, my favourite first babygrow, notes I made when I was staying in hospital after she was born, that kind of thing.

    I've got my first mothers' day card, along with some "congratulations" cards from close family/friends. Also the hospital tags and the outfit he came home from hospital in too. I've even kept a cork from a champagne bottle when we all toasted his birth! Stuff like that. Basically anything I see as time goes on that i think i'd like to keep - goes in the memory box. Please note though that my memory box is HUGE and also has a lot of my wedding things in.

    I've also kept a diary since Christmas (Harry was born in Feb), and plan to carry it on. It's mainly of things that Harry and I have done since he was born, things he's learnt to do etc etc. I've also taken lots of photos and I get them printed every month and put them in the album straight away in date order so it matches up with the diary.

    We've put in all her 'firsts' like mothers day cards, a few congrats cards from when she was born, her first on a swing, in her car seat etc

    Things that I think will make us all smile when we look back in many years at an overflowing box xx xx

    Emms is 1 yr now and I have got a 1st 5 yrs book to put photos and record stuff but also a memory box. I put in stuff like cards, Christening stuff, pictures that she has done with her childminder, I am keeping her 1st shoes, swimming costume, little sleepsuit etc.
    I am doing an on-line blog which only my OH and sister can see to record what happens as you forget so easily! x
