I had been thinking about making a growth chart for our little sugars ever since they could walk. Loving the idea of having something tangible to see how fast kids grow vs. only writing down numbers in a baby book, I chose to make one. There were plenty of great wall stickers for purchase but most were just too cuts-ey. Here’s what I came up with.
I started with the end in mind, knowing the chart would need to be portable in the event of a move. To record heights on a wall or on a board just didn’t seem like the best solution and I also really like the concept of being able to compare the height difference in all of our kids at the same age. Plus, unlike writing on a wall, you can take this one with you no matter where you move.
