Depending on your age and who you follow, social media feeds can sometimes be chock-full of adorable baby milestone pictures. And it’s so refreshing to see a mama get super creative with her little one’s monthly snapshots.
Pastry chef Lindsay Morrison decided to document her son Graham’s growth with a delicious theme, PopSugar reports. The proud mom was inspired by her love of Shake Shack burgers and the result couldn’t be any cuter.
“I never ate salty food until I was in pastry school and maxed out on sugar,” Lindsay told PopSugar. “I had a burger from this place called Salvation Burger (RIP, it closed), and I told my husband I loved it so much I wanted to put a blown-up photo of it above our bed.”

Morrison continued, telling PopSugar, “He said no. I ignored him, putting a photo of his favorite burger on his side of the bed, and the Salvation burger on mine. When we found out I was pregnant, as a joke, we put a picture of a slider above a crib.”
The joke remained throughout her pregnancy and even determined the theme of her shower. “The whole situation organically evolved — we called my stomach ‘baby burger’ — and I had a burger-themed shower,” Morrison told PopSugar.
“Then when Graham was born, I jokingly called him ‘Graham burger’ before coming up with ‘GraHAMBURGER!’” The creative mama couldn’t imagine taking ordinary milestone photos, so she ordered up a little Shake Shack and made memories that none of us will soon forget.
“When it was time to do a monthly baby photo, I just didn’t see myself doing something cheesy, no pun intended. I’d seen the doughnut baby and pizza baby photos and knew I just HAD to do shoots of my little burger baby!”
“In the beginning, I was like, ‘Oh, this is fine!’ I had a white presentation board that I’d lay on the floor, get my burger box and just lay him there, shake a rattle, and hope we could get him to crack a smile. As time went on, it definitely got more complicated! We moved from Florida to Georgia, and I’m not lying, the burger box and presentation board came in the car with us because I wouldn’t let the movers touch it.”
Staying on brand, Lindsay even celebrated Graham’s first birthday with a baby burger-themed party. Seriously, how cute is Morrison’s little burger baby?
