Face Full of Cake

My little baby turned one this week, so of course we had to have cake! I made Eli a little birthday cake just his size. At first he seemed a bit puzzled by the whole experience:

Why are they singing to me,
and what am I supposed to do with this thing?


So we helped him get a little taste of the cake. It was all over for the poor cake after that!

Mmm! This is yummy... and sticky!

He would alternate between eating bites of cake and squishing it in his fingers. Then he would shake his hand, trying to figure out how to get the sticky stuff off his fingers. It was hilarious!

I think he really enjoyed his birthday cake (and the bath that followed). What do you think?

  9. I LOVE first birthdays! How sweet is he? They are always so curious at first and then once they figure out they can actually eat and DESTROY their cake, they just let loose! Happy, happy birthday to your sweetie!

  14. The first birthday is always precious. Not just because it's the first but for all the faces that come with their lack of knowing what's going on. Hilarious and priceless. Always followed by a bath.

    What flavor cake did you make?

  19. That reminds me of a picture I have of my god-daughter doing the same thing with her first birthday cake. But the icing was purple and it was all over her face and hair!

  20. It always makes me laugh when kids don't get that they can actually dive into their cake. They are like, seriously, your going to let me? All three of mine did the same thing, hilarious!
