It’s Cake Smash Time!

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.

Six Months of Adalynn!


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…

Eating Solids for the First Time


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!
