But I confess – I started to focus more on June and her adorableness than anything else. So sue me. :)

My little one turned 9 months just yesterday, so I’m eager to put my creativity and your great ideas into good work for next month!

I love the “you are special” plate and as my birthday is just around the corner, I think I will try this one out! Happy cheers to new traditions!

Love these ideas and that they are simple and affordable. I also loved watching your little wee June blow out her candles. What a hoot!

Thanks for being so approachable and down to earth. It’s refreshing.

How fun to wake up with balloons greeting you.

Thank you very much for the inspiration and the great ideas Gabrielle :)

I’ve selected a few children themed unexpensive prints (which I liked :) and asked my 3 years old son to choose one of them. Now we are waiting for delivery… I hope my son will feel that art is an important part of life thanks to this tradition.

That is one of my favorite traditions my husband brought to the family, but the plate I bought from a school fundraiser definitely does not live up to the occasion. I really love the classic red and white plate my husband grew up with, but would love a unique one for just our family.

I think simple, but consistent rituals are SO important! We have a special birthday hat that the kids only wear on their birthday, and we always look through their baby books on their big day:)

So simple, but my kids would love having candles all day and waking up to a balloon door. :) But my favorite is the way little June shakes her head when she blows out the candles. Oh my!
