Dip (her finger in the icing) and nibble. Then dive and chomp. And finally pick up, smoosh, and shove in mouth.
I know most of us adults would rather skip ahead to the shoving it into our mouth stage.
Our guests (family and close friends) watched with rapt attention not wanting to miss "the moment."
You know the one...the moment depicted in old photo albums that was shot by your mom or dad or whoever was manning the camera. It is of you devouring (or licking, gulping, smooshing, or divebombing) your first piece of cake. And for many of you, your first taste of cake.
Madison's sister, Emily, had no interest in eating her little birthday cake that I had labored over and baked from scratch. She dabbled in the frosting and daintly nibbled at it and then picked up the cake, smooshed it in her hands as everyone ooohed on. Then, she unceremoniously picked it up again, turned it over, and smooshed it into the high chair and all over herself. She maybe had a taste of frosting. Maybe. A taste that apparently did not meet her rather high standards.
This time we got smart and only gave Madison a cupcake.
Then, there is the shot of the aftermath. The one that shows your little ones covered in sugary goodness from their head and probably down to their toes.
This was Emily at her 1st birthday party.
This was Madison at her first birthday party after the cake eating portion. As you can see, she was a little more ladylike.
Do you have any good first birthday stories or one of a kind pics you captured?

By the way, see my latest giveaway below. I posted late yesterday (right before midnight). Nothing like burning the midnight oil. I joined Twittermoms and Glue Dots to do some summertime projects with (and for) my daughters.
