Baby Time Capsule

Cupcake Jenna

A meaningful new way of bonding with your baby is by creating a baby time capsule. Just like traditional time capsules, your baby time capsule will be full of special baby things from the era your little one was born, the kind of memorabilia your baby can look back on when they are all grown up and remember their favorite childhood moments and keepsakes. Keep the time capsule somewhere visible but unreachable, so the anticipation grows over what's in the special container. Choose a festive time capsule, like the Buzzing Bumbles Storage Pail, to get your little one's excitement buzzing to know what surprises are kept inside.

Save the capsule for a special milestone, such as the baby's eighteenth birthday or the day they go off to college. Giving your young person their baby time capsule will mark their passage into adulthood while endowing them with an meaningful legacy of the past. Some good ideas for items to put in a baby time capsule: A nice item to include is a little porcelain baby box, just big enough for one of baby's first locks of hair, and maybe later a first tooth. Include baby pictures and albums with information on baby's first word or baby's first step. Include important baby documents such as the birth announcement or baby shower invites. For a boy, consider including a marked growth chart, so your six foot son can remember what is what like being only 3 feet tall, and how fast he grew into the person he is today. For a young lady, how about a silver locket, with a baby picture on one side and a picture of them all grown up on the other, for a sentimental trinket they can carry with them through life? Don't forget a favorite stuffed animal, a worn to perfection baby blanket, or most-loved baby clothes. Best of all, include handwritten notes and letters from friends and relatives, congratulating them on the special day they finally got to see what was inside their baby time capsule, and complete their initiation into adulthood.

Great Experience

Our visit to your adorable store was a treat. My two and a half granddaughter had never been properly measured for shoes before. The sales woman who waited on us was very sweet and after measuring Ruby’s feet brought out 5 pairs of shoes to try. The shoes are well made, comfortable and easy for Ruby to put on all by herself.

Darling dress

Granddaughter loves this.

Cozy and cute

Perfect for my 6mo for the cold Fall mornings. It’s thin enough for her not to overheat but thick enough to keep her warm. I purchased size 6-9 month… it’s a little big on her now but still fits and she will be able to grow into it and wear it through winter

Cutest dress ever!

What an uplifting morning, choosing among adorable and distinctive dresses for my newest family member! And the staff helped me add bows and tights and all the little extras that make shopping at Cupcake so much fun. My niece is thrilled, and MacKenzie will look darling when she gets big enough. ( I always buy for those later months OUT there a bit!) Great experience, and I will go back because the clothing is so tasteful and not at all the latest fad.

These are dresses I mailed away to granddaughters, and grandnieces and there hasn't been enough time to receive feedback. I know that from all other outfits I have sent to them each time they were loved and thought they were wonderful quality and beautiful designs.
