Let’s be honest, April is a pretty awesome month! We celebrate warmer weather, longer days, and most years, we get to celebrate Easter in April as well. It’s also the first full month of Spring and most people are filled with a little more optimism and joy. So, that makes April a great month to have a baby and celebrate their birthday, too!
I was born less than a month before Christmas, and my brother was born less than a month after Christmas. Growing up I always remember my parents commenting on how it can sometimes be frustrating having children born so close to the biggest holiday of the year. In my case, they were planning Christmas gifts but also had to buy me a birthday gift around the same time. In my brother’s case, they had to buy him a gift right after he already received everything he ever wanted!
