Mmmmmm.......pie!



What is a first birthday without having the "cake all over your face" shot? We decided to get Banana Cream Pie (it shows up better) and we just let him go at it. These pictures were taken right before it got smeared in his hair (I am STILL picking it out). He also figured out that if he put a whole bunch of it in his mouth and "blew bubbles" it would shoot across the room.

In our family you aren't officially one until you have this picture. Ironically, every meal time at our house has Jacob ending up looking like this....

I love this picture! We have the same tradition in our family.

I had to throw away the top El Guille was wearing after he obliterated a chocolate raspberry cake on his 1st birthday.

Jacob looks so adorable. I could lick him. Of course, he'd taste good judging by his picture.

Those pics are a must-have for every babybook/scrapbook. I love to just let 'em go at it.

My kids must be really weird. We give them cake to pound and smash on their first birthday and all we get is a tentative little finger poking at the frosting. Maybe they're natural neat freaks like their daddy. :-) But it'd be nice if they'd dig in just once for photo purposes.

Julie,

My oldest is the same way. She HATES to have her hands dirty. Anything else is fine...but the hands...no way. Lets just say she finds fingerpainting terrifiying...

Thanks everyone
