Take Your Marks

You’ve changed countless diapers — and have the stats to prove it.

Her every pee and poop is recorded for posterity in that little notebook they gave you at the hospital.

Time to keep track of something else. Our suggestion: Natalie Davis’s elegantly rustic heirloom growth chart. More portable than a door frame and snazzier than a spreadsheet, it’s handmade by the Oakland designer from jute and ribbon and comes nestled alongside printed tags and oversize safety pins in a wooden keepsake box (the perfect place to store it when it’s time to pass it on).

Hang it on a wall and have your lass step up every six months or so. In time, you’ll have a nifty record of her upward progress.

And that’s a record worth keeping.
