Traditions have to start somewhere. Here’s the back-story to little Leo’s monthly birthday cakes.
As you may have seen, I’ve been logging Leo’s milestones through monthly birthday cakes. As a foodie, it’s something that I think is incredibly fitting for our family. I drew inspiration from my mother, who did the exact same for me.
I love going through my pictures and hearing my mom’s story for each cake. Being the youngest in the family, I also had my older siblings participating in the monthly celebrations.
It’s traditions like these that I hope will continue down the line. Maybe one day, Leo will want to do the same with his family. It’s heartwarming to see how much time and effort my mom put into these mini festivities. She dedicated herself to making each milestone special, and it makes for the best stories! Being a parent is no easy feat, and I’ll always appreciate all “the extras” she did for us. It’s only natural for me to do the same for my son!
