12 New Year’s Resolutions to Make With Your Baby

Read next

What will 2015 bring? Giggles, grins and a few hundred diaper changes. Beyond that, pave the way for a great year to come and make resolutions for you and baby. Here are 12 suggestions that should make your list.

1. Resolve to print a few of those hundreds of adorable photos and put them in a keepsake book.

2. If you have a Type A personality (we do) you can make a list (we did) of 52 museums (zoos, gardens and aquariums totally count, too) in your city and vow to visit one each week.

3. Make a pinkie swear together that he’ll sleep soundly from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m … hey, a mom can dream, right?

4. Cry less; make silly faces more.

5. Write something down every day that baby did. Record the milestones. It’s so fun to read these things back to them when they are older!

6. Go to a mommy and me workout class together. Mom loses pounds and baby gains strength!

 7. Add some new nursery rhymes and songs to your repertoire … because “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” is getting old fast.

8. Read together every day, even it’s Vogue or the New York Times.

9. Get out of the house for a walk on the days you feel like staying in bed. If it means keeping your PJs on, so be it!

10. Take one road trip that’s planned so strategically that you don’t have to make 53 pit stops. Maybe you’ll just make 52. And that’s okay.

11. Visit with an elderly person even if you’re not related to them — it will make their day.

12. Enjoy every coo, giggle and dimpled grin because time truly does race by.
