adorable birthday ritual

This creative birthday ritual pulls heavy on my mom heart strings, it is so sweet. Have your child stand in the same place every year, on the same day (their birthday!) and snap a quick photo. What a perfect way to mark milestones and build a keepsake to treasure.

    Wow! That’s such a sweet idea. Kind of like a modern alternative to doing the pencil markings on the doorway :) I’ll definitely use this one, thank you!

    What a great idea! Our birthday ritual was always breakfast in bed and presents in the morning :) Great way to start a birthday if you ask me!

    Love this! What a sweet idea and it would make for a precious photo series of framed photos later on!

    Ohhhh my, that is about a million times better than pencil marks on a doorjam. Nicole at Making It Lovely does something similar with her daughter in a rocker. Making mental notes!

    […] A lovely tradition, a bit more complicated than a line on a wall, with a very full reward. Hope the kid still likes is at 17 though, because that will be a neat series. […]
