Parenting has been called the hardest job in the world, but there’s no doubt that it’s well-worth the effort! Cherish the moments when your wee one is still tiny by marking their growth. When your little baby boy is six-foot something, it will make for a touching reminder that he could once fit in your arms.

No, we’re not suggesting you let your little tyke grab a crayon and start marking their height all over your beautiful walls (if this has already happened, don’t panic, just grab your hairdryer). Instead, create your own DIY version of this keepsake without ruining your walls!
We love this DIY oversized ruler chart by One Creative Momma because it’s so simple. Note: If you don’t like the look of stained wood, you can use leftover paint from previous craft projects or whip up your own chalkboard paint.
First, gather your supplies. You’ll need: a Sharpie, tape measure, pencil, leveler, wood stain and polyurethane, number stencils (if you don’t want to draw your numbers freehand) and a tall piece of wood. For step-by-step instructions, visit First Home...Love Life.
