    Congratulations already, I bet this is a very exciting time for you!

    1. Get a birthday candle, it's a candle with the numbers 1 to 10 stacked, she (and you) will light the candle on each birthday and burn the number corresponding.

    2. Each year  around her birthday go to Sears (example) and take photo's of you and her.

    3. While she's little, scrapbooking is a great way to keep memories so she can have them later.

    4. Have special sleepover days and bake cookies or cake when she's visiting, something she does when she's at Grandma's.

    Just some ideas...

    I made each of my children a blanket and sweater and a teddy bear before they were born...then carried it over to my granddaughter when she came along.   And now my grand-neice.

    Also...every year, a different child gets to help build the gingerbread house. 

    We have a few others...can't remember them right now, though.
