It wasn’t just about smashing cakes for my first birthday. We had a big party at a play gym where they had lots of fun toys. I’m not big enough for the bouncy castle yet, but I did ride some cars and play with plenty of soft blocks.
It feels like only yesterday that I turned six months old and now I’m already one year old! Where did the time go? To help celebrate the occasion, mommy baked me a special cake that I got to smash. I really like mommy’s cooking and it’s even better when I get to smush it all between my fingers.
Here’s what it looked like before I dove in.
And then I got to experience my first cake smash! Of course, I had to have a small taste first.
Can you believe it? I’m already six months old! It doesn’t feel like that long ago that I was welcomed into the world and when I collected all those red envelopes at my one month party. Nowadays, I can roll over, I can sit up on my own, and I’ve even started eating solids too.
Mommy and daddy say I’m growing up too fast. I can’t wait until my next adventure! Now, gimme some cake!
Okay, so maybe that was too much sugar for a baby of six months…
Mommy and daddy got me this fancy new chair so I can sit at the table with them when they’re eating. Then, they started talking about eating “solids” and how I was going to use a “spoon” from oogaa Baby and Nuby to eat it. There was some mushy green stuff that they called “avocado” that I tried for the first time.
I was very confused at first, but because mommy and daddy helped me try some milk in a spoon first, I already knew what I was supposed to do. The avocado is so yummy and I think I really like eating solids! I wonder what they’re going to feed me next!
The second time around went even better, but I think I got more avocado on my bib and on my chin than I got in my mouth! So much fun! I want more!
