On AJ's first birthday, not knowing what to give as favors to a bunch of adults celebrating a child's first birthday, we started the tradition of creating a yearly playlist for our girls. It has become a wonderful way to document the fun we've had in the past year and to help teach our girls about our love for music - of all genres. This year we've added a new tradition in celebration of L's first. It seems that I made it through her first year with only a handful of printed photos, so in effort to catch up, I created a photo "yearbook" of sorts. So this year L gets "baby's first year" and AJ gets her fourth year (the year just completed). Will have to catch her up... What fun birthday traditions do you celebrate with your family?
