To me, birthdays are all about treats, good food, opening presents and feeling special. I think we are off to a good start on birthday traditions for our babes! We started off with her favorite breakfast, pancakes and fruit WITH a dab of maple syrup for a change. Then came the chocolate croissant with her lunch and her very first ice cream cone. Belgian chocolate (if you're going to do it, do it right). We came home, let her open presents and she chewed on the wrapping paper to her heart's content. What more could a one year old want? Happy Birthday Clara!
