Remember standing against grandma's hall closet door while your older cousin marked off your height on the door's edge and then comparing your growth every visit? Most modern mothers aren't willing to deface their carefully covered doors with pencil marks (it's hard to find the perfect paint color!), but you can still keep the tradition alive.

The Picture Me Growth Chart ($12.50) offers a more personalized, decor conscious and portable way to track your child's growth. You slip in a picture of your tot at each height into the chart's clear plastic slots instead of leaving marks on the wall. Of course, you can write your child's age and exact height on the back of the photo so you can use the very scientific stats later in life.
